    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.

    Meh...

    I really enjoyed reading the Martian and the subsequent film. I thought I'd give this a go. Maybe it's the fact that it's an audiobook rather than something I read quietly in my head, but having Rosario Dawson reading out all the exposition and description seemed a bit numbing at times. I feel like I know every inch of Artemis due to the amount of explanation and description of every minute aspect of every scene. Dawson's reading is wonderful and she brings her usual charismatic self to the character, giving us a personality we can apply to the protagonist, which is no bad thing. However, the story lacked any real depth and felt like a description of a moon base where "things happen" without truly engaging us in the proper excitement of the story. The story itself seemed laboured and pedantic, with many plot twists and (what should have been) surprises way too obvious. Even the climactic decisions were predictable, with the same predictable outcome. Maybe it'd make a better movie... I just felt largely underwhelmed. Glad I listened to it, Dawson is great casting but in the end... entirely missable.

    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 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.

    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.

    Finally a book I didn’t want to turn off…

    I can’t tell you how many books I buy and stop listening to after 1-2 hours and I never go back to them,This one was one you couldn’t wait to have an opportunity to turn on again, and normally the space/SYFY ones other than a Stephen King type I’m not that into this is a great read for any fiction lover!

    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.

    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.

    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 .

    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.

    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"...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Rosario Dawson at her best

    Autor Andy Weir ist bekannt für seine spannenden, detailgetreuen Erzählungen. Auch Artemis ist einer dieser epischen Titel mit viel Witz und Selbstironie. Dabei kommt Rosario Dawson eine ganz besondere Rolle zu, denn die Art und Weise wie sie Leben in alle Charaktere haucht, ist unvergleichlich. Chapeau, Rosario.

    Ok story with a badly written female protagonist

    I'm quite disappointed by this book, since the Martian is one of my absolute favourites. The story is fine, not groundbreaking, but a good science-fiction story. Since it is set so far in the future, the science is a bit less realistic and thus (to me) not as fun and interesting as it was in the Martian. What really bugged me, though, was the protagonist. She's a woman, who's a complete asshole, bad-ass. tomboy type of character. At the same time, she is constantly sexualising herself though. Like, she's on the run from murderers, but is still thinking about how sexy she must look to the guy, whose t-shirt she borrowed. Or she undresses during a heist and comments on it, saying it's fine because she undressed in front of a gay guy. She also views her naked body as payment for favours she gets from male friends (the only type of friends she has, no other women) and her sexuality is often commented on by the male characters. This doesn't drive the plot along at all and it's simply weird. The gay man is once referred to as a "butt-pirate" by another character, since apparently homophobia is alive and well on the moon. The only thing that might save this book is Rosario Dawson, as she really bring Jas to life. Still, the way that she is written was just too off-putting for me. I'll probably still finish listening, but I'm really unimpressed with this one. I guess Andy Weir can write a guy who is literally all alone on an entire planet quite well, because he doesn't interact with women much. He might want to stear clear of written from a female perspective, if he can't envision a woman who doesn't constantly see herself through a male perspective.
