Book: Andy Weir's "Artemis"

Andy Weir's first book, "The Martian" (which I reviewed in this post) was awesome.  I gave it five stars on Goodreads, something I rarely do.  When I saw that Weir had written another book - "Artemis" - I was excited.

"Artemis" takes place on a moon base at some unspecified future date.  It follows a smuggler who lives in Artemis and smuggles things like cigars and exotic foods onto the base.  Along the way we learn about the corruption and organized crime in Artemis.

It's a good book.  There are interesting characters and some interesting science.  The science is not as 'dense' as that of "The Martian".  I expected a bit more.  It was good ... But it did not live up to his first book.  I expected more.  I feel sorry for Weir.  It will be hard to live up to his first book.

I gave this book four stars out of five on Goodreads for being good enough ...almost.
