Book Review: Artemis by Andy Weir

Another ‘hard’ science fiction book by Andy Weir, the famous author of ‘The Martian’. This book follows the adventures of Jazz, who is living on the Kenyan moon base Artemis. She makes a living as a ‘porter’, moving things around the base for profit. The pay is rather bad, so she has an alternative revenue stream as a smuggler, getting illicit goods onto the moon. Jazz becomes involved in a heist, and suddenly it’s not just the environment trying to kill her.

This book is an easier read in comparison to ‘The Martian’, but has the common theme of technology going bad in a deadly environment. Jazz has to use her knowledge of the base, and science to try and stay alive, whilst not getting caught by the law enforcement. It is a page turner and quite engrossing.
