Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, and ends up abandoned on a planetoid and must use her knowledge of botany to survive the horrible weather and hazardous conditions and somehow make it back home.
My main issue thus far is Jazz. She's essentially Mark Watney--who is essentially Andy Weir, which is fine--except amplified. The whole "I'm gonna science the shit out of this!" is turned to eleven, and it seems a bit forced. Also, it's pretty ham-handed politically, but that's not a major issue for me. Again, I'm super early into it, so hopefully it'll pick up once I get into the moon heist section.
Maybe I'm thinking of that game where you can build rockets.
Anyhow, I'm a third of the way through. Mostly it's pretty good, a lot like the Mars book, but I haven't been hit over the head with science like I was afraid Weir was going to resort to. The main character makes for an easy read, even if she is pretty generic. World building is great, I'd love for a drop to let me know it's in the same universe as his prior novel. The emails(?) between her and the person on Earth are pretty douche chilly at times though.
