November Featured BookArtemis
by Andy Weir
(Crown, hardcover, $28.00, SIGNED COPIES)
Andy Weir has done it again! Made me read and rave about a science fiction book. I never read science fiction, nor am I a fan of fantasy or paranormal, but I am a huge fan of Andy Weir. His wit, humor, and amazing storytelling ability are addictive. Artemis is a city on the Moon but it could be a city anywhere -- sure, you have to do things differently because of no atmosphere, etc., but basically love is love, greed is greed, smuggling is smuggling, murder is murder, no matter where it takes place. I loved The Martian, but Artemis is, IMO, even better. I loved the personal interactions between the characters, and I loved Jazz's determination and her somewhat skewed sense of what is right and what is wrong. Artemis is a true adventure story with a lot of really neat science thrown in. Think a futuristic MacGyver/Mission Impossible with a young female protagonist.
