Review: ARTEMIS by Andy Weir

I read THE MARTIAN by Andy Weir last year and loved it. I couldn't wait to get my hands on ARTEMIS. I almost wish I had read this books first. ARTEMIS is good, but it is a completely different type of story. Jazz Bashara is a low-level porter. She is living on the first colony [...]
