Artemis by Andy Weir

Reviewed by L. Bennett

Jazz is a young, arrogant woman with a sarcastic sense of humor and a strong dislike for rules. She is also very smart and a good problem-solver, but she cannot seem to turn her attitude or skills to making the money she wants for the lifestyle she wishes. When a rich fellow offers her an opportunity that will tax all of her abilities but promises a big financial reward, Jazz jumps at the chance. On the surface this seems like just another novel about greed-driven goals that probably get crosswise with the law, but Jazz's story has a twist--she lives on the moon. That makes the setting unusual and adds complexity to the mix of skills and knowledge Jazz requires to earn her reward. The book has plenty of geek-speak, a typical array of expletives, and is populated with some interesting characters. I have to admit, however, that I enjoyed the premise and setting more than I enjoyed Jazz's solutions to her unending string of difficulties.
