Reviewed at my website.
I enjoyed this book. I haven't read The Martian, but I enjoyed the movie (it is one of my son's favorites). Jazz is perhaps not as likable as Mark Watney, but there's still plenty of plausible space science (and space welding, which at least one of my followers will enjoy) and intrigue to go around. Artemis is a quick read that should satisfy people who can deal with Jazz's smart-ass-ness and enjoyed The Martian. Thanks to NetGalley for the advanced copy.
