by Andy Weir
Another great read from Andy Weir! I was very excited to get an advance reader copy of this, but I didn’t love it as much as The Martian. This book was different from The Martian in setting, characters, and theme (the majority of the novel is centered around crime). Lots of science again, but it didn’t take away from the novel for the most part. The book is mainly about Jazz, a 26 year old woman who lives on the moon. She has a side business of smuggling, is super smart, and has a foul mouth. She is offered a considerable amount of money for an offer she can’t refuse and this is where things get crazy! The humor was great and I had a lot of laughs. The setting was well developed. It made living on the moon seem possible and fascinating. I didn’t find Jazz as likable as Watney, but again different books and setting. The smuggling and heist were very interesting and I loved the ending.
Thank you to NetGalley for an ARC to read and review!
