Artemis by Andy Weir | Book Review

ArtemisArtemis by Andy Weir

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Mildly entertaining near-future engineer fiction wrapped in a caper and then dipped in a half-baked survival story set on the moon. Like The Martian, a nerd uses her science powers to solve increasingly complicated scenarios in order to survive. Unlike The Martian, I didn’t care about any of these characters. The dialogue is wooden and the entire narrative suffers under a peculiarly jocular sexual humor. The main character, Jazz, is the kind of girl guys who don’t actually know too many girls always think they are about to meet. Smart, sexy, sarcastic and just a little bit out of reach. I enjoyed it well enough but the ending left me with a shrug.
