Whenever I picture Rosario Dawson I imagine a cool, laid-back woman with a strong opinion and an edgy style. She’s the perfect choice to narrate Andy Weir’s ‘The Martian’ follow-up Artemis.

Weir’s success skyrocketed with his novel The Martian, which was then adapted into a film starring Matt Damon as Mark Watney. Watney starkly differs from the author’s new protagonist. Jazz Bashara is the witty, smart, and fierce heroine who seems to live on the road less traveled.

Jazz, a smuggler, grows up on the moon and soon finds herself involved in some serious trouble that lands her right into a murder mystery. “I worked hard to make a deeper character than Mark Watney,” Weir tells Entertainment Weekly. “Jazz is more nuanced. She’s flawed. She makes bad decisions.”
This sounds like it’s going to be a really good one. Rosario Dawson has an inexplicable edge that fits Jazz perfectly. Something about listening to a sci-fi novel feels like you’re entering another world. Dark details, feelings of endless voids, and the fight to survive are sprinkled throughout this novel
Whether you wait until its release date on November 14th or pre-order it, we’re sure it will be out of this world. Listen to an excerpt of the audiobook here.
