    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
