Andy Weir - Artemis (2nd Hand Paperback)
Artemis is a 2017 science fiction novel written by Andy Weir.
The novel takes place in the late 2080's and is set in Artemis, the first and so far only city on the Moon . . . Population 2,000. Mostly tourists. Some criminals.
The novel follows the life of porter and smuggler Jasmine "Jazz" Bashara as she gets caught up in a conspiracy for control of the city.
Jazz Bashara is one of the criminals. She lives in a poor area of Artemis and subsidises her work as a porter with smuggling contraband onto the moon.
But it's not enough.
So when she's offered the chance to make a lot of money she jumps at it. But though planning a crime in 1/6th gravity may be more fun, it's a lot more dangerous . . .

'A smart, fun, fast-paced adventure that you won't be able to put down' - Ernest Cline, bestselling author of Ready Player One.
'Fast paced, high octane and highly entertaining' - Netgalley Review.
"I admit to worrying that he wouldn't be able to keep up the quality from The Martian, and this is definitely a very different kind of tale from that, being half a heist novel but otherwise just a great adventure, but he pulls it off. Better than pulling it off, even. I love his characters and the feel of the moon city, Artemis, is vital and detailed." - Goodreads Review.
'Artemis does for the moon what The Martian did for Mars' - Guardian.
