First Listen: Rosario Dawson Reads Andy Weir’s ARTEMIS

Earlier this fall we learned that Rosario Dawson (most recently of the Netflix series The Defenders) will narrate the audiobook version of the new Andy Weir novel Artemis. Now you can listen to a clip of the audio recording at Entertainment Weekly.

Rosario Dawson to narrate Artemis

After his blockbuster success with The Martian, Andy Weir will release his follow-up, in print and on audio, on November 14th. The new novel is set on the moon and tells the story of Jazz Bashara, a smuggler caught up in a conspiracy to control the moon’s first and only city. According to an interview with EW, Weir hopes that readers will be impressed by his main character: “Jazz is more nuanced. She’s flawed. She makes bad decisions. She’s incredibly intelligent, but she’s always looking for the shortcut.” Dawson says she is “ecstatic” to be narrating Weir’s main character.

Fans of The Martian AND fans of Rosario Dawson will want to mark their calendars for this exciting release.
