The bestselling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller—a heist story set on the moon
Jazz Bashara is a criminal.
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
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. @goodreads
This book freaking rocks!!
seriously. The book does have science in it but it's not too bad. This
is mostly about Jazz who has lived on the moon since she was 6 and now
she's in her 20's. Her dad lives on the moon too but they had a falling
out and she makes it on her own by doing. . . things.
I love the character of Jazz. She's funny and does crazy things but never anything to hurt any one.
AND SHE LIVES ON THE MOON!
doesn't live in the good part of town. Yes, the city on the moon is
called Artemis and they have their rich side and poor side. It's just
too awesome to read about.
Jazz does some odd jobs as a porter but she also brings in contraband and no it's nothing bad.
She has a cool friend she emails from Earth, his name is Kelvin. I love their talks.
people come to the moon every year to spend their holiday. They stay in
the fancy hotels and spend tons of money in the shops. Regular folk
save up their money so they can come for a once in a life time stay.
life on the moon isn't all that it's cracked up to be. There just has
to be some evil mobness going on. There are life and death situations
and Jazz in put on the spot to save the whole city.
I'm saying, you need to read it for yourself. If you loved The Martian
(which I did) you will love this book. At least I think you will, I did
because IT'S THE MOON! THEY ARE LIVING ON THE MOON!
And I have to mention some of the people I loved in the book:
and some randoms =)
