Hear Rosario Dawson Narrate Andy Weir’s New Novel ARTEMIS (Exclusive)

Author Andy Weir could have followed up his best-selling hit The Martian with a book about the history of classifying space rocks and we would have been looking forward to reading it. So you can imagine our excitement for his next novel Artemis, a heist story set on the Moon. But if there was any worry such a fantastic premise would mean he’d be sacrificing the real, heavy science elements we loved so much in The Martian, this clip from the audiobook read by Rosario Dawson has put our space-loving hearts at ease.

The new novel follows Jazz Bashara, a young girl living in mankind’s first and only Moon colony, Artemis. After trying to pull off the perfect crime, Jazz gets caught up in a conspiracy for control of the city itself. In this exclusive clip from the audiobook from Audible, titled “Preparations,” Dawson reads the part of Jazz as she gets ready to to go on a secret and inherently dangerous EVA to the Moon’s surface.

I don’t like driving in the rain at night, so the idea of going on a secret Moon walk alone is a horror story for me. But just like Mark Watney, Jazz seems to know her stuff while having a pretty good sense of humor about the dangers of space exploration. That means even if the plot is vastly different from Weir’s The Martian, it will have the same elements that made us love it so much.

The audibook of Artemis is available at Audible this week, the same day the novel hits bookstores, Tuesday Novermber 14. You can order the audiobook with Rosario Dawson version here.
