Reading progress update: I've read 214 out of 384 pages.
Artemis: A Novel - Andy Weir

My five year old twins had their tonsils removed today. The three of us are stuck in the house for at least the next five days. One of those days will be completely devoted to cheering on the Vikings. As for the rest of the days, I'm hoping to knock out some of my reading challenges. 

 

"Ugh." I rolled my eyes. "I don't do that, Dad. This may shock you, but I haven't had sex with anyone in this whole room."

"Well, it's a small room."

 

Part of the reason I loved The Martian so much is because when I wasn't confused by all the science, I was laughing like a mad woman. So far, Artemis isn't quite as funny. Every once in a while there's a gem.

Artemis: A Novel - Andy Weir

Absolutely fantastic!! Loved it!!

I absolutely loved the last Andy Weir book that I read called "The Martian". This book was a lot like that in the fact that it was set in outer space, fraught with lots of action and plot twists, and there was a lot of humor.

Jazz Bashara is the main character of this book that is set in a city on the Moon. Jazz is like a mail clerk taking stock and goods received from Earth and delivering it to the addressee's. She's young, spunky and hilarious. 

The city on the Moon seems so life like with the Buzz Aldrin center and other areas named after the astronauts that landed on the Moon in real life.

From what I could tell at the ending, there should be more books in a series coming out in the future. I certainly hope so. I loved this book, it could read like a YA, but I enjoyed it as a adult, as well.

Thanks to Crown Publishing and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Review of the Martian by Andy Weir
The Martian - Andy Weir

This is one of those very rare times where I enjoyed the movie more than the book.  That might not be fair considering that I saw the movie first, but I thought the movie truly brought to life the size and scope of the book.  In addition, I thought the movie gave more personality to the characters than the book did.  The book was solid, with a major focus on the science part of the story.  Perhaps I would have enjoyed the book more if I did not already know how the story was going to end.

Review - Artemis by Andy Weir
Artemis: A Novel - Andy Weir

Well that was really fun! Artemis is quite different from The Martian, which I loved, but I genuinely enjoyed it. I loved the concept of how life could work on the moon, but I didn't so love the characters. It kept feeling as if Jazz, the female main character, was a male. As a girl, I couldn't really relate to her, which isn't a bad thing, except the tone just felt a bit off the whole time. She sounded almost exactly like Mark Watney. However, the plot was interesting if a bit messy, and it was an overall nice read.
