Inhaltsangabe

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.

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"...

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!

Best female narrator I have heard so far

Great entertainment, read with a fantastic voice. Rosario Dawson’s performance is wonderful - hope to hear more books by her.

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.

Simply loved it

Andy Weir can write! And Rosario Dawson can read.

After I had finished this fantastic journey through the moon city Artemis I was super disappointed that it was only fiction. I was there. I talked to its people! Had lived and suffered through their days and nights! But it all was just fiction. I am so sad that I can never meet Jazz, that sexy little just a little bit criminal and her friends, her father, Bob the EVA Pimp... I could go on about every little detail.

Brilliantly entertaining and informative reading leasure most superb performed!

What you want and more! A thrilling story today!

The story is a future reflection of our now and then. It catches you at the fundation of what makes the self, you a part of society and vice versa. Okay, it is a story about a girl, a woman and a muslim in a bar. All about life!

Great story, great idea, really nice science and technology content. The narrator was really good, she gave the main protagonist the sassy edge I imagined. I would highly recommend the book to anyone.
