“How dare you call me lazy? I’d come up with a scathing retort but, meh, I’m just not motivated.”
I was really torn between 3 or 4 stars but went for the lower because of a couple of reasons.
Firstly, this is a really enjoyable book. I did like it. As with The Martian, the mix of science, humour and painfully relatable human experience worked very well and if you enjoyed Weir’s first novel, you’re likely to get along well with this one.
But it wasn’t perfect or as good as The Martian. My main problem was that every so often, the main character, Jazz, just didn’t seem believable. Maybe this was because she was written by a man, but her quips and jokes sometimes seemed forced and kinda cringe. It was a shame that because of this, the story had a tinge of ‘hmm’ to it.
