Total beach/vacation book. Easy read, no messages, no deep meanings. It’s a science fiction story about a conspiracy in a settlement on the moon. The story keeps your attention and if you’re planning to be on a beach soon – and you like science fiction (and you’re a guy, as it’s a total guy book) – I’d generally recommend it. It’s certainly not the best book I’ve ever read, but it’s entertaining.
The author also wrote The Martian, which I didn’t read but did see and enjoy the movie. The one interesting aspect of this book is that while the author is a man, the protagonist is a woman and the story is written in the first person. So apparently the author channeled his inner female and felt comfortable speaking as a young, feisty woman (who, not surprisingly, seems to think quite a bit like a guy) who’s the action hero of the story.
