Description

Ever had a bad day? Try having one on the moon...

'Fascinating' TIM PEAKE, Sunday Times bestselling author of Ask an Astronaut

WINNER OF THE 2017 GOODREADS CHOICE AWARDS FOR SCIENCE FICTION

*****

WELCOME TO ARTEMIS. The first city on the moon.
Population 2,000. Mostly tourists.
Some criminals.

Jazz Bashara is a criminal. She lives in a poor area of Artemis and subsidises her work as a porter with smuggling contraband onto the moon. But it’s not enough.

So when she’s offered the chance to make a lot of money she jumps at it. But though planning a crime in 1/6th gravity may be more fun, it’s a lot more dangerous…

    Is there more to this? If not why not? Our hero(one) is stabbed thought dead and left behind on a mission!! That is not the end of a book, but a half finished one! Grrrrhhh
  • Nice read. Could do with more suspense.

    Not as nail-biting as the Martian but good read nonetheless. I was hoping Mark Watney will make an appearance and use his agricultural skills to grow lunar potatoes!
  • So good! Wish I had just started it.

    The trouble with a really good book is that you finish it fast and then it’s over. I did the same thing with the Martian. This was a great tale with a wonderful sense of irreverent humour and a lovely dose of science fiction - stress on the science. No paranormal or fantasy cheats, just understandable extrapolations of today’s technology. The characters are likeable and believable but have human flaws, something that lends a bit of depth. Spoilers from here. Jazz is a low paid porter, scoundrel and smuggler living on the moon, in Artemis. Her story revolves around a caper gone wrong, nefarious dealings among the wealthy and the evolution of a new society. I couldn’t stop reading until the story was done. Andy Weir did not disappoint.
