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.… (lisätietoja)

    bethd13: Both books are fast paced and lots of snarky humor. Love the intelligent, strong, female characters!

I picked this up at my local Waterstones a few weeks ago based entirely on the fact that I enjoyed the movie of The Martian. I never got round to reading it but I enjoyed the movie and the few people I know personally who read told me they enjoyed the book. Weir has developed a reputation as a Sci-Fi writer who likes scientific detail in his settings. This is something I can get onboard with as it generally means the writer has put a lot of thought and research into the nuts and bolts to underpin the book.

Our main character is Jazz Bashara, a porter at the Artemis import dock with a sideline in smuggling things in that shouldn't really be in Artemis. She is meant to be complex character who is vastly intelligent but decides to embrace criminality rather than honest work. She is somewhat estranged from her father who is an honest, hard working welder considered to be the best in Artemis. Her father is a devout Muslim, a religion which Jazz chooses not to follow. This becomes one of the main sticking issues with me. Jazz is of Arabic descent, Artemis is, by some form of political reasoning part of Kenya and is essentially a Kenyan outpost. Many of the characters in the story are from countries other than America but yet everyone and everything feels decidedly American. I would have no issue with it feeling American if it were consistent with the background of the people who are in, and have made Artemis what it is. It all feels tacked on, as if Weir is trying to say something, but that message never comes.

Other topics are mentioned such as homophobia, protectionist unionisation, and organised crime but never really explored and are just left hanging. This left me feeling like it was a wasted opportunity and almost as if Weir couldn't make his mind up what topic to explore so he threw them all into the mix and never dug into any of them. The thing that links all the people together is a heist that Jazz is paid to carry out but inevitably goes wrong. The heist is ok, it kept my interest well enough but it wasn't enough to redeem the other faults in the book. The scientific detail was fine with me. I know some reviews have found it over the top and while some of it undoubtedly could have been left out I didn't find it obtrusive. At the end of most chapters there are snippets of email exchanges between Jazz and a boy in Kenya called Kelvin which start when they are both 9 years old. As far as I can tell there is no purpose for these at all except to allow Jazz access to someone on Earth who can eventually help her smuggle and sort her out with a fake ID. Again, this feels very tacked on.

Ultimately I found the book to be a big disappointment . The setting sounds intriguing but is left undeveloped and I just didn't care for any of the characters at all. If Weir had settled on one or two social issues to explore this could have been a much better book. There was fast paced enough to keep me reading but had it been longer I think I would have abandoned it. My lasting impression is that this felt like poor YA fiction and it could have been so much more. 1 star is too harsh but 2 feels generous. ( )

It certainly wasn't as good as The Martian, but expecting Weir to follow that book with a work of equal quality is probably unfair. I still found myself engaged in the book and enjoying the reading experience even though I found the main character to be irritating at times. As a light, fast, enjoyable read (which is what I was expecting and hoping for from this book) it did its job. ( )

I was reluctant to read this book because I was concerned it would suffer from the literary version of the “Second Album Problem” (SAP). The SAP happens because a band is able to pick the best songs from years of writing and playing on the road for their first album but then must quickly come up with material for the second one while touring and promoting the first one. Often you go to listen to the second album and the material is just weak. Not so here. Mr. Weir manages to keep the feel and tone from “The Martian” but write an engaging and new story, one that still involves using science to solve crazy problems but in this case in a Moon colony and with a mystery/thriller kind of plot. It works. His choice of main character is very interesting as he chooses to totally try and write the “other” since Jazz is a twenty-something female who is Muslim, all traits that one cannot ascribe to the author. I felt like he got it right and while I have no frame of reference to judge I’ll give him a thumbs up. As with most of the books I end up liking a lot I found myself very involved with Jazz and her fate and I devoured the end to see what happened. Good stuff. ( )

Jazz Bashara lives in a moon colony called Artemis, with 2,000 residents plus tourists. She is barely scraping by, working at the Port, as a small-time smuggler, but trying to get a coveted job as a tour guide. One of her clients offers her 1,000,000 slugs (major moon bucks) to trash the company that smelts and delivers oxygen, based on free electricity. When she fails to do the job properly, the business owners seek retribution against the perpetrators, and Jazz gets really pissed off, seeking to escalate the war. What I liked about the book was the myriad of quirky characters, from the administrator, to the head of security, to her friends, family, and enemies, and there was certainly plenty of action. However, Jazz herself was too helter skelter: brilliant, but wasting her life away needing some purpose, and then somehow at the end, claims to be responsible for maintaining order in Artemis to escape justice. Could not abide that. ( )

As interesting as "The Martian" . Weir's main character a lot of fun. Awaiting his next offering to science fiction! ( )
