Artemis by Andy Weir |No Spoiler|
Good morning everyone,
Two days ago came out in all the US and UK books shop one of the most anticipated books of the year, Artemis.
I had never read anything about Andy Weir, and I just recently saw the movie “The Martian” but I’ve heard a lot of him, always positive, from friends, reviewer and booktuber and I’m very glad to have had the opportunity to read Artemis, his new book, released two days ago in the US and Uk. So I can fully confirm all the things I’ve read and heard about him.
Andy Weir is a phenomenal author as few. I can assure you that despite both stories being set in space are completely different. Andy’s inventive is great. This book is great!
The story is set on the moon, in its first and only city, Artemis, on which have been built structures that allow people to live in, from the most luxurious to the poorest bubble. The story is told by protagonist Jazz Bashara, a young criminal.
Although Jazz’s father has a shop, she prefers to be independent, but she earn to live doing commissions, which, most of the time, are illegal.
But her life and her stay on the moon are endangered when she decides to accept a job where she has to destroy structures that feed the whole city, for a million Slugs (Artemis official currency).
Jazz is fearless and wants money at all costs, but even though she accept she does not know what she’s going through, Rudy has been trying for years to catch her for her crimes, and this may be the time when she is sent back to earth where almost surely she won’t survive because the gravity of the moon is 1/6 of the Earth’s.
But it’s up to you to find out what’s happening to the beautiful Jazz and to those who she knows and who also care about her.
To the next time,
