Beschreibung von Audible

Editors Select, November 2017

Let's get this out of the way: Artemis is not The Martian. And, in my opinion, that's a very good thing. A high-stakes sci-fi thriller that takes place in Artemis, the lone city on the moon, the novel follows Jazz Bashara - 26, perpetually broke, and scraping by as a porter... when she's not making a few illicit bucks smuggling goods onto the moon. Lured in by the promise of fortune, Jazz finds herself in over her head as she is drawn into a scheme that goes much deeper than she could have anticipated. This novel is filled with plenty of the techy detail and sardonic humor that made its predecessor so unique - Weir makes you feel the claustrophobia of a cramped city on the moon with finite levels of oxygen, and Jazz could go head-to-head in a battle of cracking wise with Mark Watney any day - but the story stands on its own two legs. The best part: Rosario Dawson is perfectly cast as the feisty heroine; her performance is lively, witty, and animated, and she clearly brings her experience as an actress who has portrayed so many roles in the sci-fi, fantasy, and action genres. —Sam, Audible Editor

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.

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.
