    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.

    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.

    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"...

    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.

    No. Just.. No.

    Andy Weir's "Project Hail Mary" was so good, I at least expected this book to be good. It simply is not. I bought a lemon.
    Why was Artemis a lemon? Let me explain. (Minor spoilers ahead):
    The biggest problem with this book lies in two places:The protagonist and the narrator.

    I will start with the protagonist.

    Jazz Bashara is not a hero. She is a villan walking the hero's journey. She is narcissistic, irresponsible, entitled, self-centred, unrepentant and generally without any capability of self reflection nor empathy. Weir tries to inject *some* of that into the character, but it dies horribly within her snarkey and edgy personality. All her problems are of her own making, but anybody pointing that out is disregarded.
    Yet... yet, she expects sympahty.
    When the "do or die" part of the book swung around, I found myself thinking that if she were to die, it would be justified. This is a sign of a poorly written hero.

    Maybe as an example; the book starts with her failing her EVA examn by being too lazy to thoroughly check her safety gear, For the entire book she rails against this as injustice, but later argues against and mocks a professional EVA master for following basic safety protocols in possibly the most dangerous environment a human being can put him/herself in.
    I work in a similar environment. I know people like Jezz. People like Jezz gets people killed.

    Enough of the character, and onto the narrator.
    I'll go lighter on Dawson as she seems to have really nailed the character - if the character was *intended* to be grating and irritating. For me it became a question of causality. Did I hate Jezz because of how Dawson voiced her, or did I hate a perfect iteration of an utterly annoying character?
    Character aside, Dawson did a decend job of general narration as you can expect from a holywood celeb. If I have to level honest criticsm at her, it would be that her portrayal of other characters was pretty lackluster.
    Maybe I have gotten too spoiled by the talent shown in narrators like Ray Porter, Sam Deveraux, Jefferson Mays and Minnie Goode (among others).

    Kind of disappointed...

    There a few things about this book... First of all, it is much worse than The Martianer. The story is really flat, the main character is not, well... no emotions here. Technical descriptions are great though!

    About Mrs. Dawson reading the book - I like her, but her interpretation of certain accents is terrible and annoying.

    In general, this book can be compared to Rowling's The Casual Vacancy. Harra Potter - you remember it, The Casual Vacancy - you read and think "but why...?"

    Not comparable to The Martian

    Narrator is good but dialogue is cringey, protagonists are one dimensional and storyline is weak.
