I didn’t read the blurb before I started this book. No, I expected perfection from Andy Weir after reading the Martian years ago. Imagine my shock when I notice the main character is in fact female! I had to restart the book with that information. Now, I rarely enjoy female characters that are written by men. I just feel they always get it wrong. As with some of my other favorite authors, I think Andy Weir did a fantastic job.
What can you say about Jazz? She’s funny, badass, and a bit of a flirt. She may not be on the right side of the law, but her heart is always where it needs to be. I love her. I loved them all(Even the assholes). While reading the Martian I felt my heart drop multiple times, and Artemis was no different. It is the perfect about of humor and suspense. If you’ve read my other reviews, you are aware that I rarely have quotes to go with them. I have so many saved for this book that I can’t add them all. It’s that damn perfect.
If you’re a fan of The Martian, I know you’ll probably love this. I’m horribly sad that this book is over. Between The Martian And Artemis, Andy Weir has earned a forever place on my ‘Favorite Authors’ list. I can only hope he puts his next book out as quick as he did Artemis. 5/5
