[ Books ] Artemis - Andy Weir

ArtemisArtemis by Andy Weir

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was the set reading for the Feb 2019 Bibliogoth meeting. I enjoyed this book but I could seldom lose myself in its world. I liked the main character -a young woman of Saudi origin but one who grew up in the one city on the Moon- but found many details overdone and slightly irritating at times. I'm sure Weir did his homework in relation to the feasibility of the things that happen in the course of the book but it felt increasingly improbable as it progressed. The other characters felt a bit cardboard-like at times. An excellent science-fiction idea but one with some flaws.
