The Looking Glass Series: Hold My Coffee Series Order: Special thanks to Jilly James for helping with the banner for this episode ;-. Things in Pegasus take a sharp, unexpected turn shortly after their arrival. I thought she was going to stroke out. That pretty boy she has working as her administrative assistant told Wilkes that she has been holed up in her office most of the afternoon reading the expedition charter and drafting changes to send to the IOA.
The phone on his desk started to ring, so he picked it up. Weir has sent several emails questioning the amount of authority the military will have over the expedition and has indicated she feels it will undermine her leadership. Woolsey, the only way I could see myself undermining Dr. Do you think there is anything I can do to mitigate the hostility between the two of you? John exhaled sharply and sighed.
McKay and I are engaged in a personal relationship that has absolutely nothing to do with Dr. And I think you know Dr. Weir had no problem calling Dr.
McKay into her office to berate her for dating me. McKay may feel free to file a complaint. He put the phone on the base. Is it rude to hope she figures out how to ascend really soon? He laughed when Meredith immediately hopped up and left his office at a trot. The door slowly swung shut behind her. You know my last XO was a man, and I never tried to involve him in my personal life, so I apologize for doing it to you.
How do you think I knew what kind of creamer to stock in the office? Hazelnut, 80s metal, classic cars, bisexual, boxers, and I knew about your big ole crush on McKay before you asked her out. She followed him into the infirmary and apparently the CMO at the time just let her continue. She could shut down or go nuclear. John watched Meredith moving around her quarters, picking up little things to put in her pack. Her trunk had already been taken by the logistics staff.
She looked up from the little bag she was cramming full of hair clips and ponytail holders. The medical staff takes blood, does a complete analysis, and there is a survey that the patient fills out to help with personalization. Mine was placed six months ago, and the device lasts forty-eight months. John laughed then groaned. She took the little bag to her pack and dropped it into the main section.
Nothing in it is worth your life. Anne had a little pouch made for me that I can wrap around my arm. I can put a drive and my iPod in it. Have you made your calls? John rolled off the bed and stretched. I want you in the gate room with me—we go through that gate together. The gate opened with a familiar swoosh, and, beside him, Elizabeth Weir took a ragged breath. The expedition listened as data came back through regarding air quality and the environment.
He waited a few seconds before stepping forward, taking McKay with him with a gentle tug. The room was bright, sunlight was filtering in through large windows behind the gate. Weir was next to the MALP. John reluctantly released McKay as they stepped away from the gate. He activated his radio. No sign of recent occupation. She activated her radio so the SGC could hear her report. Congratulations, Daniel, you found the lost city of Atlantis.
The city computer just introduced herself on a screen—Atlantis, Primitus Civitas. His gaze drifted around the room and he focused on Teldy who was organizing people and supplies away from the gate. Since she had that in hand, he walked over to what appeared to be the central staircase and took a step up.
The stairs glowed a little brighter as he started up them. The city is shoring up the integrity—we have plenty of room for the luxury items. John turned and watched the steady stream of Marines as they came through the gate with their supplies and the other three MALPs that had been built for the expedition.
Weir had joined McKay and Jackson at the set of consoles. All three were hovering over a single console, staring at it in rapt attention. He wondered what else the city had to tell them. He turned in shock—he heard shouts and the priming of weapons below him.
An elderly woman was standing in the entrance of a hallway just beyond the stairs. A small smile drifted over a mouth he knew well, and his stomach lurched. The woman took another step toward him, but it required that she let go of the doorframe.
She went weak in the knees. John jerked forward and caught her to keep her from falling. Sheppard sank to his knees with the woman. He focused on the elderly version of his girlfriend even as the younger of the two women dropped to her knees beside them.
Meredith took a small bright blue crystal from the older version of herself as Weir arrived. She tucked the crystal into her front pocket with a small frown. She sat back on her heels and motioned Weir back with a huff. I hate to be crowded. John unclipped his P90 and passed it to Teldy as Grant prodded almost everyone else back. He watched the doctor grasp one pale wrist and focus on the watch he was wearing.
She trembled against him then, and his grip tightened on her. She shook her head. She coughed and took a deep, shuddery breath. Only ten of us made it through the gate and all but three drowned because the city was underwater when the shield failed. The three of us made it to a ship—an Ancient ship left by Janus on the city. We ended up back…back in the time with the Ancients, and you died.
His fingers curled into the material of the dress she was wearing. The city has only been on the surface for an hour—it took me a bit of time to get up here. John looked up and focused on the younger version of McKay. Her face was ashen, and her eyes were bright with tears. Go keep young-me busy.
This is fucking her up. Teldy was ahead of him and opened the doors. She pulled them shut behind him with a decisive click. He glanced over his shoulder and found his XO standing sentry with her back to the door.
There was a white bench with curved corners in the middle of the balcony, and John sat down on it with a deep breath. I was able to visit a couple of planets he deemed safe, at least at first. I did it for us. Fuck, this is messing me up. Janus was the only one who was willing to help me. Janus helped me stay behind and figure out a plan to save Atlantis. I was awake for nearly five years before I finally went and got in the pod to start the plan. I had work to do, and I needed time to do it.
I really hope that bitch never managed to ascend. She took a deep breath. The location is written down in one of the files I gave young-me. I left detailed instructions for Dr. Grant on how to retrieve that data from the medical database.

At one point, she stays the night at a friend's house and after showering she wears one of his shirts. He comes back and, him being awkward with women, simply stares at her not knowing what to say. She thinks to herself "I was pretty sexy I have to admit" Most characters had cringy moments like this and it ruined the book for me.
I'm still not sure how to review the ending so I'll have to sleep on it and come back for an update! After thinking about it, I wanted to add that it was interesting to read about the heist with the scientific knowledge thrown in there but it wasn't enough to make this book a must-read. It didn't live up to my expectations!
The more I think about it the more disappointed and angry I am so I'm reducing it to 2 stars! View all 65 comments.
The book does have science in it but it's not too bad. This is mostly about Jazz who has lived on the moon since she was 6 and now she's in her 20's. Her dad lives on the moon too but they had a falling out and she makes it on her own by doing. I love the character of Jazz. She's funny and does crazy things but never anything to hurt any one.
Jazz doesn't live in the good part of town. Yes, the city on the moon is called Artemis and they have their rich side and poor side. It's just too awesome to read about. Jazz does some odd jobs as a porter but she also brings in contraband and no it's nothing bad. She has a cool friend she emails from Earth, his name is Kelvin. I love their talks. Rich people come to the moon every year to spend their holiday.
They stay in the fancy hotels and spend tons of money in the shops. Regular folk save up their money so they can come for a once in a life time stay. But, life on the moon isn't all that it's cracked up to be. There just has to be some evil mobness going on. There are life and death situations and Jazz in put on the spot to save the whole city. That's all I'm saying, you need to read it for yourself. If you loved The Martian which I did you will love this book. And I have to mention some of the people I loved in the book: Melissa Martin's Reading List View all 86 comments.
You're not gonna like what I have to say. This is not the review I was expecting to write, but this is not the book I was expecting to read. Remember our hero, Mark, in The Martian? His jokey, sarcastic personality started to grate on my nerves towards the end of the book.
It's like he never quit with the relentless Apologies in advance. It's like he never quit with the relentless joking. Staring death in the face? Play some funny music. Ok, we get it! Mark is all about the comic relief. Why does it have to be so overdone and heavy-handed? I still enjoyed the book for all the old-school science fiction fun.
Jazz, our female protagonist in Artemis, has almost the exact same personality as Mark from The Martian. And that goofy, insulting character is even more annoying in a grown woman. I don't mean it to be. Oh, and by the way, Jazz is the town tramp with a heart of gold because of her reputation for sleeping with so many guys. The book starts out very fun to read.
I really enjoyed reading how the city of Artemis came to be established on the moon. I liked learning about the moon's surface, dust and atmosphere.
There just wasn't enough of the moon facts for me. Also, I'm beginning to question Andy Weir's imagination for the future. The moon inhabitants walk around and do all their business transactions on small computers that they carry.
They pay for items and surf the internet and make calls on these "gizmos" as they are called. What there is plenty of: More than I ever want to know about welding. Stupid middle-school humor that the very smart adults all seem to love. Convoluted, crazy plot that never really makes sense. Integral characters that are unexplained, because of one-note superficial writing.
After the first third of the book, I had to push through to finish it. Especially the middle part with all the welding. Take my advice and skim skim skim through the welding. The very end ramps up with some excitement, but not enough to make up of for the rest. I would have liked more moonwalking, less welding. More thinking, less insulting. More imagination, less joking. More sci-fi, less lame comedy. View all 80 comments. When Artemis first came out I started seeing lots of one and two star reviews.
Not wanting to spoil the book, I didn't read them very in depth. But, the star situation had me concerned as I was looking forward to this book as I enjoyed The Martian very much.
Was I in for a big letdown? Lucky for me, the book was a 4 star experience! Thoughts on why others rated it so low - these are just guesses, I may be totally wrong: It is not The Martian - sometimes when people are a huge fan of a book they are When Artemis first came out I started seeing lots of one and two star reviews.
It is not The Martian - sometimes when people are a huge fan of a book they are hoping for a same experience with the next book.
While it had shades of The Martian with the space science and the sarcastic humor, it is not The Martian. For me, this was not a problem. Sarcastic, cynical, innuendo filled humor is rampant. If you are not a fan of borderline inappropriate jokes or cheesy puns, this is not the book for you.
I liked it and thought it was hilarious! It did not bother me. Figuring out what exactly is happening and why is a bit difficult. For me, this was one part I can sort of agree seemed not quite as tightly woven as the rest of the book.
So, I liked it! Since other people I kind of expected to like this didn't, I am not quite sure who to recommend it to. But, if Weir keeps writing, I will keep coming back for more! View all 48 comments. Dec 06, Shaun Hutchinson rated it did not like it. This book is awful. It's not just awful, it's offensive and immature and badly written. I wasn't expecting a masterpiece, but I'd enjoyed The Martian and hoped the followup would be fun in a similar way. There was nothing fun about this book.
Let's start with Jazz: Jazz Bashara is a Saudi woman written the way a white guy who's never spoken to or met a single woman in his entire life would write her. Some mention it as a means to shame her, Jazz mentions it to brag. It's just weird and gross and, honestly, only something a guy would write. Just because Weir wrote a gay character into the book doesn't mean he gets to demean that character.
The only person who's probably mentioned as having more sex than Jazz is Dale. Because gay men are sluts, am I right? Because they have a lot of sex. Oh, and not only is the gay guy a slut, but he stole Jazz's boyfriend and slept with him while he and Jazz were still together. If I had my way I would ban Weir from ever writing about another gay character in any book for the rest of his life. Then there's just lots of random messed up stuff.
There's also the odd subplot that goes nowhere about the reusable condom. LOTS of broad, offensive generalizations about other cultures. And the plot isn't even good.
It's a mess of highly unlikely stuff happening split by sex jokes and then more stuff happening that would never ever happen in real life and not just because it's on the moon, but because view spoiler [when you sabotage three pieces of mining equipment, blow up a company, and poison 2, people you go to jail.
Saying Jazz doesn't because they don't have one or whatever is stupid. Don't waste your time as I've wasted mine. Read something, anything other than this. View all 23 comments. Dec 06, Lola rated it did not like it Shelves: Seems to me that Andy Weir rushed to write this book. Oh man, what a disappointment. And an even bigger disappointment that it won the science fiction category of the Goodreads Choice Awards.
Just because the author is popular. Is it just me, though? I needed this book to be more serious and considerate of other nationalities and cultures and actually have a female character I could connect with, but I disliked Jazz profusely. Do not take care. That was my first thought. Perhaps I'm wrong - it's very much possible - but the writing confused me at times. View all 32 comments. May 08, Raeleen Lemay rated it liked it Shelves: The first half of this book was very fun, and the plot was interesting and all that.
The only thing that bugged me was the writing style, which I suppose is similar to The Martian , but I felt it was a better fit with that story, and with Artemis it just felt forced. Other than that though, I was loving it! This book could have easily been 4 or 5 stars from me.
Then, around the halfway point, the book sort of lost me. The overall plot for this story is Jazz performing a heist, and I was expecting it to take the whole book, but the main part of the heist itself finishes around the middle of the book.
Of course, there is plenty of backlash and more conflict that arises, but it wasn't what I was expecting, which could be partly the reason for me not enjoying the book as much.
I just hope whatever he writes next is from a male perspective because although I appreciate his effort, Jazz's voice just sounded like Mark Watney pretending to be a woman. View all 7 comments. This book was great. I admit to worrying that he wouldn't be able to keep up the quality from The Martian, and this is definitely a very different kind of tale from that, being half a heist novel but otherwise just a great adventure, but he pulls it off.
Better than pulling it off, even. I love his characters and the feel of the moon city, Artemis, is vital and detailed. But you know what the best part is? I was thoroughly entertained during the entire read. The pacing is great, the reveals belie This book was great. The pacing is great, the reveals believable, the twists unexpected, and the action, delightful. I really couldn't ask for more when it comes to fun science fiction. The moon is a great place to have an adventure.
There's always the threat of being deported to Earth, the expensive living arrangements, and the law if you're a smuggler, which Jazz is, but there's always suit and engineering and environmental problems to worry about, too. And never forget greed and cupidity and the need to balance being a good person against a ton of intrigue. That's what we've got going on, here, and it's a real treat every step of the way.
No spoilers, but I can easily say that I had a great time reading it from the first to the last page. Nothing could have pleased me more. The read is solid as hell. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC!

She used to live with her father, but is too embarrassed to go back, having had a tiny accident in his workplace, smoking weed there with a pal, and…ummm…pretty much burning it down.
She slee Artemis - image from BusinessInsider. She sleeps in a tiny space fondly referred to as a coffin , gets by working as a porter, despite her exceptional brain, and aspires to getting her EVA license, which would allow her to make real money, escorting tourists and doing other outside jobs. Too bad she kinda blew her road test. Andy Weir - image from Wired Good thing, though, that she has a fallback, a steady entrepreneurial gig.
She moonlights as a smuggler. A steady client of her off-book import biz, a tech billionaire sort, has a plan for taking over a local enterprise. All it requires is for someone to do some unapproved EVA work and blow some things up. The million slugs local currency — maybe she should be called a sluggler.
Ok, maybe not he offers makes it worth the very considerable risk of moving from her low orbit criminal activity to the much higher orbit of actual felon. But what was that mysterious box she spotted at his place, labeled ZAFO?
Unfortunately, all does not go as planned, and now some very scary darkside people are doing their best to put her in a state of permanent eclipse. I see Brianna Hildebrand as Jazz Artemis is a very exciting action-adventure sci-fi tale, with a dose of mystery tossed in. Weir made some effort to hone his character-building skills and it shows.
She makes bad decisions. Jazz is fun and relatable, well, relatable enough that we care whether or not she is given a close encounter with an unlivable atmosphere. You might have to suspend your moral perspectives though, as Jazz is what she is, a criminal. Her wise-cracking sense of humor is very appealing, as it was for Mark Watney in The Martian.
Each chapter ends with an exchange of messages, from many years before, between Jazz and an Earth-based friend. These also give us reasons to care about her. Unlike the case with his uber hit, he manages to stop himself from loading us up with too much. A bit of corny humor around an experimental reusable condom did not work.
This is where his Arthur C. Clarke, hard-science inclinations, meet up with Asimovian social examination, and a Heinleinian feel for dialogue, while stopping well short of the sort of deeper politico-sociological considerations of, say, Ursula Leguin.
What he has succeeded in writing is a fast-moving, engaging, fun book that will slip you a little intel about actual moon-base science and planning while keeping you thoroughly entertained.

Jazz Bashara is a young woman who has grown up there, and knowing the place like the back of h I received a free advance copy of this for review from NetGalley.
Jazz Bashara is a young woman who has grown up there, and knowing the place like the back of her hand makes it easier for her to hustle a living legally by being a porter who hauls stuff around. Illegally, she makes money on the side with a smuggling business. If she could get her EVA certification she could make a lot more by showing tourists the sights outside, but a hardware problem makes her fail the test as well as nearly killing her.
So when a rich guy offers her a huge payday to perform a dangerous act of sabotage on a business rival Jazz takes the gig. Just to get this out of the way: Weir has built up a lot of detail about life on the moon from the nuts-and-bolts stuff science stuff as well as how the Artemis society functions. Yet Weir never lets it get away from him and keeps it funny. So why not as good as his first book?
Jazz could have easily been a young male of any religion so it seems like an easy nod to diversity rather than incorporating anything that might have deepened her. Also, while this one has Jazz getting into plenty of predicaments it lacks the tension that The Martian had its best. View all 13 comments. Aug 18, Larry H rated it liked it Shelves: I'm between 3 and 3.
Although it has been a few years since Andy Weir published The Martian , he hasn't been missing from the literary world, thanks to his sharing a number of free super-short stories with the reading public.
Annie's Day remains my favorite of the bunch. Even so, I was anxious for him to come out with a new novel. Artemis is the first city on the moon. While wealthy tourists get to experience the city's luxuries, for the ordinary citizens living there, it's alm I'm between 3 and 3. While wealthy tourists get to experience the city's luxuries, for the ordinary citizens living there, it's almost like any other city—the struggles between the haves and have-nots, corruption, violence, crime, the usual.
Almost like any other city except for the gravity, and the fact that everything is encased in bubble-type structures to keep the extreme radiation and space dust out. Jazz Bashara is a low-level porter on Artemis. She longs for a better life but doesn't have the motivation to do anything more than what she does, even though she has the brains and the talent for much more.
Instead, she ekes out a living as a criminal, smuggling in contraband from Earth for anyone willing to pay her. She doesn't care that it's wrong; in fact, she's more than a little proud to be gaming the system. One day, one of Jazz's wealthy regular customers offers her a part in a scheme that seems almost too good to be true, but her part of the spoils would be enough to give her the type of life she has always dreamed of.
Of course, what seems too good to be true usually is, and it isn't long before Jazz realizes she's in the middle of something much bigger than a get-rich-quick scheme—there's corruption, and people are willing to go to any lengths to protect what they believe is theirs. Jazz is going to need more than just her street smarts if she's going to survive this. Jazz is a pretty fascinating character.
She's pretty tough, smart, wily, and not embarrassed about her sexuality or her general laziness. She knows she could achieve more, but for the most part, she isn't motivated to do so through legal channels.
I love the fact that Weir created a multi-cultural cast of characters without batting an eye—Jazz is a Saudi Arabian Muslim albeit non-practicing , and there are characters from different races, religions, cultures, and sexual orientations that don't adhere to stereotypes.
But while all that science seemed to work in The Martian it seemed to weigh this book down a bit. And no, it wasn't the gravity. Weir has created quite a world, and certainly the descriptions helped paint the scene, but I felt at times the lengthy scientific diatribes pulled the plot off course. The other thing that frustrated me about the book is the fact that Jazz speaks and thinks like a teenage boy.
Even though you're rooting for her, after a while her lack of maturity started to grate on me. Those criticisms notwithstanding, Weir knows how to tell a story. Even though I thought the caper and that's the best word to describe the scheme Jazz finds herself in was a little silly, I couldn't stop reading Artemis. It's a fun and interesting book, and you have to wonder how close to reality Weir's vision of life on the moon will come, if it ever becomes a reality.
