Artemis by Andy Weir

The Book✯✯✯✯✯






Author of The Martian?! A massive heist on the friggin' moon?! A female lead that is just as snarky, intelligent, and hilarious as Mark Watney?! Count. Me. In.

Y'all. This was a brilliant book. It was fast past and seamlessly wove realistic science and fiction together for pure, unadulterated awesome-ness. I loved Jazz as a lead. I loved that the cast of characters was so incredibly diverse. A Saudi Arabian woman kicking butt and taking names. A practicing Muslim father. Black Frenchmen. German and Russian nerdy scientists. And so many more. This is truly the world's colony on the moon, and Weir did it justice.

We had heists with exciting action and explosions.

We had a smuggler turned hero.

And we had a community that was morally ambiguous but tight knit and protective.

This was a big, big win of a read. PLEASE do yourself a favor. Just pre-order the book now, because I am officially booking the opening weekend after November 14th for you. Read it.

Thank you to NetGalley, Andy Weir, and Crown Publishing for a free ARC in exchange for an honest review. It was truly my pleasure.
