Description

The #1 New York Times and Sunday Times bestselling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible near-future adventure. You grew up on the moon, of course you have a dark side... Jazz is a small time criminal, subsidising work as a porter on the moon with smuggling a little contraband. But it's never enough. When she's offered the chance to get rich quick she jumps at it. But planning the perfect crime in 1/6th gravity was never going to be easy, especially as there is a conspiracy at the heart of Artemis. At first it was about the money, then it was about control. Now it's about survival...show more

Review quote

"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 * "Weir's great skill, as he already proved with The Martian, is his attention to detail. Artemis is a triumph of imagination" * ESQUIRE * "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 * "Jazz Bashara makes for an intriguing protagonist and Artemis is a smart and sharp novel. A sci-fi crowd pleaser made for the big screen" * SALON.COM *show more

About Andy Weir

He is a lifelong space nerd and a devoted hobbyist of such subjects as relativistic physics, orbital mechanics, and the history of manned spaceflight. He also mixes a mean cocktail. He lives in California.show more
