This book is about a heist on the moon.
This is the first Andy Weir book I have read. I thought this was a pretty enjoyable read. I liked that we follow an female character of color. . . I just wish she was a better fleshed out character.
I listened to this book and I thought Rosario Dawson did an amazing job of bringing this world to life. But now that some time has been I wonder if I would have loved the book as much as I did if it wasn’t for her.
The setting was interesting but there was a lot of science talk and exposition. There were so many moment where I felt that Jazz was taking the time to explain something to the reader. There wasn’t a lot in this book that flowed organically.
From character interactions to dialogue there were so many moments that felt forced. I think a lot of that had to do with the fact that Weir doesn’t have a good grasp on writing a female protagonist.
Jazz was constantly describing her looks and other characters were referencing her sexual history. She was a genius engineer that became a trader rather than follow in her father’s footsteps. All of her “flaws” were trivial and only seemed to make her more interesting to male characters.
I really enjoyed the audiobook, but not the actual story.
I gave this book a C.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
