Overview of Artemis pdf by Andy Weir

Jasmine Bashara never signed up to be a hero. She just wanted to get rich. Not crazy, eccentric-billionaire rich, like many of the visitors to her hometown of Artemis, humanity’s first and only lunar colony. Just rich enough to move out of her coffin-sized apartment and eat something better than flavored algae, Rich enough to pay off a debt she’s owed for a long time.

 So when a chance at a huge score finally comes her way, Jazz can’t say no. Sure, it requires her to graduate from small-time smuggler to full-on criminal mastermind. And it calls for a particular combination of cunning, technical skills, and large explosions—not to mention sheer brazen swagger. But Jazz has never run into a challenge her intellect can’t handle, and she figures she’s got the ‘swagger’ part down. The trouble is, engineering the perfect crime is just the start of Jazz’s problems because her little heist is about to land her in the middle of a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself.

 Trapped between competing forces, pursued by a killer and the law alike, even Jazz has to admit she’s in way over her head. She’ll have to hatch a truly spectacular scheme to have a chance at staying alive and saving her city. Jazz is no hero, but she is a very good criminal. That’ll have to do.

 Propelled by its heroine’s wisecracking voice, set in a city that’s at once stunningly imagined and intimately familiar, and brimming over with clever problem-solving and heist-y fun, Artemis is another irresistible brew of science, suspense, and humor from #1 bestselling author Andy Weir.

Great story, great light, fun read
Reviewed in the United States on January 25, 2018

Good news and bad news. First the bad news, I liked The Martian better and feel the Martian was a better book. Also while it seems to fit with the story line their is more profanity in Artemis than in the Martian. Now the good news, this is a fast paced, light very enjoyable read and I found myself at the end of the story wishing it was a bit longer. There is a lot of hard SCI FI in this story (so if discussion of orbits, pressure ratios, welding techniques turns you off then this is not the story for you, but if you want to see how the author seamlessly — like a good weld — puts this into his story then this is a good book for you). I also like how the author blended in some political and economic ideas — for instance guilds tend to serve as a tax on consumers and restrict choice, how economies start out as capitalist, grow to regulated and tax based economies, then turn to a nanny state (my words here) and finally collapse. I also like how the author used a female protagonist, a non observant Muslim, and adjusted the story line for this. All in all this book was a fun read and I found myself unable to put it down and nearly finished it in one (longish) sitting. I highly recommend the novel. I only hope the author does not wait so long for his next book.

Reviewed in the United States on February 27, 2021

I love how Andy Weir can suck us into a story so scientific with such little effort. What would normally be daunting to otherwise read and comprehend, Andy can explain an algorithm, whether it be the smelting of aluminum to produce oxygen, or the complex concentration of CO2 in our blood, and we understand it as if is common knowledge. As for Artemis, he describes life on the moon in such a way it feels like second nature to live there. After reading this book, I felt the urge to save money for a trip there myself before remembering this isn’t yet an option.

I’m compelled to call or main character a heroine, but that would be inaccurate. It’s weird to think of one person as both the protagonist and the antagonist simultaneously, but somehow she pulls it off. There are a times I feel like she’s a woman character being written by a male author, but those moments are few and far between enough that it doesn’t break immersion. Overall, Artemis isn’t The Martian… but it’s not supposed to be, and that’s okay because it’s equally fantastic in its own way.

Artemis: A masturbatory fantasy for libertarians
Reviewed in the United States on August 14, 2018

At heart there’s a fun little romp around a hypothetical moon base and a criminal conspiracy. That part is not so bad. My beefs with the novel are threefold:

* The author cannot write a convincing woman, at least not from the woman’s own perspective. I’ve never been a woman, but I have been a teenage boy, and I am pretty sure that adult, straight women spend less time thinking about breasts than a teenage boy. The narrator is obsessed.

* The libertarian nuttery runs deep in this sucker. Laws against flammable materials are zealously enforced, but pedophilia is perfectly legal, selling drugs to minors is perfectly legal, and unions are basically just thugs who beat you up if you work without the union. (And yet, for some reason, the most skilled workers refuse to join the unions? because it would mean being paid less? who would join a union to make less money?)

* Lastly, the economy makes no sense whatsoever. They use a company scrip for currency (in order to evade all the evil banksters on earth!), and the company scrip is “grams safely landed on the moon.” Apparently a delivery boy makes 12,000 grams a month. A beer costs about 25 grams. At one point they disclose that a gram is roughly 1/6th of a dollar. Meanwhile, in the real world, it costs about $13 to get a single gram of material into LEO, to say nothing of a transfer to, or soft landing on, the moon. The entire plot hinges on exporting bulk fiberoptic cable from the moon to the earth at a fabulous profit, somehow? I don’t know if the author has ever handled fiber optic cabling. It’s not lightweight stuff.

Review Quote(bookdepository.com)

Artemis does for the moon what The Martian did for Mars. His second novel concerns a likeable protagonist in peril, saved by her own resourcefulness, in a tale that leaves readers better informed about science than they were before they read it…Plus the narrator has real charm. There’s no question that this novel is going to be a hit * The Guardian * Jazz, Weir’s main character, is a moon-born version of Stieg Larsson’s Lisbeth Salander. She is young, rebellious and a petty criminal…Weir’s great strength, as he showed in The Martian, is to make us believe. His future society living inside massive domes built not far from where Armstrong set foot in 1969 is utterly plausible. * The Times * Weir has done it again: he’s created a diverse and fantastic new world, filled with eclectic and memorable characters, and woven them into a dazzling work of contemporary science fiction – one that’s chock-full of actual science. Artemis is everything you could hope for in a follow-up to his smash debut The Martian: another smart, fun, fast-paced adventure that you won’t be able to put down, featuring a heroine who’s equal parts Ellen Ripley, Arya Stark, and Jyn Erso. I can’t recommend it enough! — ERNEST CLINE * bestselling author of Ready Player One * All the things I loved about The Martian are here in spades-the hard science Weir somehow makes accessible and riveting, the masterful, never-see-it-coming plotting, but most of all the voice of his new protagonist, Jazz Bashara-an irreverent, witty, vulnerable heroine, who, just like Mark Watney, is exactly the kind of character you’ll want to spend a book with. With Artemis, Andy Weir has done the impossible-he’s topped The Martian with a sci-fi-noir-thriller set in a city on the moon. What more do you want from life? Go read it! — BLAKE CROUCH * bestselling author of Dark Matter * Weir’s great skill, as he already proved with The Martian, is his attention to detail. Artemis is a triumph of imagination * ESQUIRE *

“Another rollocking good yarn!”

Andy Weir has proven not to be a one hit wonder. We have yet another hilarious protagonist to follow around on a more traditional sci-fi adventure this time. Weir’s vision of the future is an optimistic one in parts, a refreshingly diverse future as we see from Jazz – the main character, and her group of not necessarily friends, but acquaintances. This time the story is a heist, and you immediately get the impression Jazz (as a relatively small time smuggler in her spare time) is in way over her head, and Weir’s sense of humour makes it all the better for it.

The story has a large emphasis on family too, which slowly builds and becomes really heart-warming as the story progresses. At one point there’s an sort of impromptu family therapy session which just made me smile so much.

“Crime caper on the moon”

Artemis – the city on the moon. Two thousand people live in several connected domes in a close-knit community. Part of the colony is geared towards rich tourists but mostly it’s inhabited by ordinary people, workers, tradesmen, service folk. Jazz Bashara is one of them, scratching a living as a porter with a bit of smuggling on the side. One of her wealthy contacts offers her a huge amount of money for a bit of sabotage. Needless to say, things don’t turn out quite as planned; a metaphorical can of worms is opened and threatens to destroy everything Jazz holds dear.

I really enjoyed this fast-paced, joyful sci-fi caper. The characters are likable, Jazz is a feisty, sassy heroine with plenty of smartarse comebacks. Life on the moon is vividly portrayed and the workings of the city believable with plenty of entertaining science thrown in without being didactic. If you liked the Martian, you’ll love this.

“Solid Sci-fi Entertainment​”

‘The Martian’ by Andy Weir was my favourite book of the year a couple of years ago. His follow-up was never going to be that good and I made my peace with that. The humour, the science, the character, the setting, the plot – everything about it was an absolute wonder to behold. It may not be the finest writing ever put to paper but it is one of the most entertaining, living-and-breathing books I’ve EVER read.

‘Artemis’ does have some of that. The wit is there occasionally, the characters are in some cases brilliant and I enjoyed spending time with them. The plot is bonkers but pretty good and I love Weir’s ideas. The science is where he comes into his own – I am not a scientist but it’s breathtaking stuff – he makes it suspenseful and exciting and even when I had trouble understanding what was going on I enjoyed the way he puts the science across. Unfortunately it feels to me like Weir had a lot of trouble writing a female character as there were many moments I winced at a turn of phrase or a thought our protagonist was having. My suspension of disbelief was hampered by this and when you’re reading sci-fi that’s not a good sign. The plot took lots of unexpected turns but I kept questioning whether characters would really act in the way they did – it often felt unreal and unlikely. To sum up – this is a good book. It has flaws and for some readers this may destroy the reading experience but for others (myself included) these will either not be noticed or will be forgiven. And that’s a good thing – it means you’re out there to enjoy something and not tear it down for its failings.

By the way – I agonised over giving three or four stars; it’s a very strong three.
