Editors Select, November 2017

Let's get this out of the way: Artemis is not The Martian. And, in my opinion, that's a very good thing. A high-stakes sci-fi thriller that takes place in Artemis, the lone city on the moon, the novel follows Jazz Bashara - 26, perpetually broke, and scraping by as a porter... when she's not making a few illicit bucks smuggling goods onto the moon. Lured in by the promise of fortune, Jazz finds herself in over her head as she is drawn into a scheme that goes much deeper than she could have anticipated. This novel is filled with plenty of the techy detail and sardonic humor that made its predecessor so unique - Weir makes you feel the claustrophobia of a cramped city on the moon with finite levels of oxygen, and Jazz could go head-to-head in a battle of cracking wise with Mark Watney any day - but the story stands on its own two legs. The best part: Rosario Dawson is perfectly cast as the feisty heroine; her performance is lively, witty, and animated, and she clearly brings her experience as an actress who has portrayed so many roles in the sci-fi, fantasy, and action genres. —Sam, Audible Editor

Description

The best-selling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller - a heist story set on the moon.

Jazz Bashara is a criminal. Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you're not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent.

Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of her problems, as she learns that she's stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself - and that now her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even riskier than the first.

Bringing to life Weir's brash, whip-smart protagonist is actress Rosario Dawson (Marvel's The Defenders, Sin City, Death Proof). With the breathless immediacy of one realizing they're one cracked helmet visor away from oblivion, Dawson deftly captures Jazz's first-person perspective – all while delivering sarcastic Weir-ian one-liners and cracking wise in the face of death. And with a cast of diverse characters from all walks of life calling Artemis home, Dawson tonally somersaults to voice Kenyan prime ministers, Ukrainian scientists, and Saudi welders. It's a performance that transports listeners right alongside Jazz, matching her step for step on every lunar inch of her pulse-pounding journey.

A ferrari with no motor

On the outside, everything about this audio book looks good. The much anticipated sophomoric novel from breakout sci-fi author Andy Weir read by Rosario Dawson is a great preface in itself. Add to it the promise of the first moon colony, some corporate espionage, a lone wolf heroine saboteur and the possibilities are endless. Then it just sits there. And all the aspects that could make it great are that much more annoying. Dawson does a fantastic job narrating. The problem is the characters have no depth, the storyline is swiss cheese and the dialogue is juvenile to an infuriating level. The protagonist delivers wannabe witty sarcasm endlessly and has hardly any likable moments. Humor falls flat at every attempt and there are many, many attempts. Very disappointing. The science is interesting but that can only go so far. If you're looking for the best sci-fi and you haven't done it yet, check out The Expanse series.

The opposite of the Martian...

One of the things I really enjoyed about the Martian was a main character who dealt brilliantly with unfortunate circumstances that were caused by forces out of his control. By contrast- Jaz - the main character in Artemis- is totally responsible for one mess after another. Artemis is a story about a supposedly smart person who consistently make very stupid decisions. Jaz attempts to solve each of her problems (which she largely creates) by creating situations that are worse...and each disaster is worse than the last. She’s a liar and a thief - and while she’s very creative in her solutions she is a destructive force in her own life. Not a fan. I listened to Artemis because I enjoyed the Martian so much. If I had listened to Artemis first I doubt I would have picked anything by the same author.

way over hyped.

I really loved The Martian. This didn't even come close. It wasn't terrible, but it just sort of sat there....
I have a thing where I feel compelled to finish a book, even if I'm not enjoying it. I had to force myself to finish this one.

A Book I Truly Wanted to Love

Andy Weir has shown once again he is a master at researching and building a truly amazing sci-fi universe. Unfortunately, his dialogue is juvenile and his story boring. Scientific details aside, the book read like a pre-teen thriller. The characters were all one dimensional and dialogue was appallingly simple. The story was boring at best and read more like a screen play than a rich, deep, and enthralling book.

I honestly wanted to love this book. There is a lot of good substance here, and I hope Andy finds the time to take everything he’s learning to write a book to truly remember. For now, it looks like all we’ll get is a book perfectly suited for a 90 minute movie.

Really wanted to like this

This has all the right ingredients. Written by Andy Weir, read by Rosario Dawson - what can go wrong?
A lot apparently.
The book is bad. Weak story, awful main character and the science feels artificially placed. It’s good science but it does not drive the plot nor it is very interesting.

As for the performance - I am conflicted. Something was not working. Rosario has great voice, good accents, and the production is very well done. But the overall result is bad. I just don’t know if it’s because Rosario is missing something or just the bad story and awful main character comes to life through her voice and projecting on the performance.

I am still very hopeful and Weir’s next book. The Martian was great and I very hopeful this book is a temporary setback.

Formulaic

The Martian was a book while reading you thought this will make a great movie some day, Artemis on the other hand feels like it was written for todays movie audiences as a forethought.

With a great concept, Weir falls short with his heroine, he shows us plenty at how technically astute he is but not so at writing from a woman's perspective, which made the protagonists development weak, leaving less empathy for her actions. The overly ambitious plot has too many holes in it to make Artemis more than just ordinary and to me it had a chance to redeem itself but Weir opted for more of a hollywood ending.

Rosario Dawson has a wide range and delivers a solid performance but the stereotypical accents of some of the characters does not seem accurate for people living in the most diverse city ever.

Artemis just tries too hard not to be The Martian and ends up becoming more like Die Hard on the Moon .

I was surprised at how mediocre this was

I became a huge Andy Weir fan when I read "The Martian" and later the short 6 minute story called "The Egg". I was so excited for this new Andy Weir book. The first 3 hours I hated it. It was boring, and nothing was done to bring the reader into the characters, especially the main protagonist. After that, the book picked up the pace. It's a short book, so throw out the first 3 hours and it's really short. However, it still amounted to nothing more than an average sci fi story. Had this been my first Andy Weir book, I would have never read another. The reader was good, but her inflections of the main character's voice would not have been the choice my mind would have gone to if I had read this instead of listening. Some of the time she had this so called street smart girl sounding like a dumb valley girl. I could not get into this one. Not at all.

Entertaining; Fun Moon Adventure; Not the Martian

Based on the reviews I've seen, I would suggest listening to this BEFORE the Martian, otherwise, you might be somewhat disappointed with Artemis. If you have read the Martian, I would suggest dialing back your expectations for this one and just try to enjoy it versus comparing it to another one of Weir's books. Sure Weir is very talented - but this isn't Martian 2 - there is going to be some variations on characters, plot, etc. Not every book by an author is going to be spun gold perfection. And it is hard to follow up the success of something like the Martian.

For one, you are not going to be nearly as sympathetic to our protagonist, Jazz, as she is not a stranded scientist struggling to survive until help arrives. Jazz is an under-achieving smuggler hustling her wares within a tiny community of 'loonies' (don't call them that they hate it) colonizing the moon in a cluster of acclimatized spheres [Artemis]. She's lived there nearly her entire life, has a few interesting social connections, and is laboring in near-poverty in hopes of paying off a debt/righting a wrong that has her and her father on the outs.

There is a lot of science, moon, and some space travel stuff to geek out about - much of it sounds rather plausible. But I didn't nitpick, I just tried my best to enjoy the book.

Some bark about the idea of the producers hiring a famous voice to narrate the book when there are plenty of extremely talented voice-actors who could have done a 'better' job. Sure, I agree there are plenty of very talented people who could have read this - they could have treated it like an audio drama and hired a full-cast. Regardless, I think Dawson captured Jazz's brash, rude personality rather well. The other characters, at times, did blur a little, but her overall performance was listen-worthy.

I enjoyed this book. I hope you do too.

Future of the past! (Not many spoilers)

A story developed in a moon base, in the middle 2070s, without any mention to robots or AI??? With convenience store cashiers? Welding guilds??? Seriously??? A brasilian cartel named O Palácio? A mob scientist from Manaus???

Look, I’m brasilian and it’s all the dumbest thing I’ve ever read! Total lack or research about Brazil. Lame plot, old, sterotyped characters: The Barman, The Cop, The Nerd, The Strict Father, The Evil Assassin... Contrabandists, oh, please...

I’m returning this book. I wish I could get my listening hours back!

Disappointingly Juvenile

This audiobook should have come with a "Young Adult" sticker, warning those in search of grownup fare to steer clear! The introductory blurb on the audiobook gives no indication that the lead character is a kid . . . and because most of her actions are juvenile and her relationships immature and the plotting of the tale is rather plodding . . . I'm posting this as a public service announcement to warn the unsuspecting that this book is not very good. Also, Rosario Dawson does only a so-so job of narrating.

good & fun SciFi Thriller - but not 'The Moonette'

I almost listened to the Audiobook in one go, that is how much I enjoyed both the story and Rosario Dawson as Speaker.
I love the basic idea, the book is funny and extremely thrilling until the very end. Granted, at some point the jokes of the main character Jazz tend to become a bit annoying, but it's still well within my tolerance level.
The one real crime this (audio-)book is guilty of is: not being 'The Martian'. Because logically that is what people are comparing it to. And specifically those who loved the Weir's 1st book seem to have a hard time liking this one.
Weir's 1st book was exceptional. Artemis is certainly not as ground-breaking but that doesn't make it bad.
In short, if you loved the Martian, don't think of Artemis as 'Martian II'. Don't event think of it as Weir's 2nd book. Instead, image it was written by another author like e.g. Michael Crichton and ask yourself how that would change your expectation. If you do that and judge the book on its own, I'm pretty sure you will enjoy Artemis!

etwas enttäuscht

Ich bin ein absoluter Fan von "the martian" und hatte daher hohe Erwartungen. Leider wurde ich etwas enttäuscht. Die Geschichte arbeitet mit vielen Klischees, das Ende war voraus zu sehen. Die Sprecherin ist aber absolut fantastisch. fazit: nette Geschichte, aber kein "muss"...

Great Popcorn Science Fiction

It's refreshing to see a resurgence of true science fiction stories - meaning stories that actually somewhat science-based. This book is good example: informative but not boring; simplified without being stupid. Great Performance also.

6 Sterne für die Sprecherin

Nicht ganz so gut wie der Marsianer, aber nahe dran.
Ich mag eigentlich keine weiblichen Sprecher, aber Rosario Dawson ist fucking great! Passt zum Hauptcharakter.
Die deutsche Version ist "shitty shit" wie Jazz es ausdrücken würde. Wer des englischen halbwegs mächtig ist, der sollte die englische Version wählen. Stellt einen vor keine herausforderungen, erspart aber blutende Ohren.

Awesome mix of weir and dawson

All the Stars to one of the best main characters in a long while.
Rosario Dawson brings a flawed and likeable Jazmin to the ear, together with the POV style really put me on the moon.

Die Vision von Andy Weir

Der Autor dieses Science Fiction Romans bringt eine tolle Spannung und Faszination, nicht nur durch die beindruckend detailliert beschriebene Mond-Basis, sondern verwickelt die Charaktere die dort leben auch in eine hinreißende zentrale Geschichte ein.

Not Mars, but who cares?!

Amazing story, compelling till the end. Amazing voice performance as well. Please let there be a film of Artemis and a next book of Andy Weir. Try an exo-planet next ;)
