Weir is capable of a lot more.

This book feels like pandering. Definitely not written for the same crowd as The Martian or The Egg.

I can believe it. It's got to be terrifying to hit it big the first time around, and I can imagine the temptation to try to make lightning strike twice must be overwhelming.

It must be.

Which is why the reaction is to produce pablum I suppose.

I also need to stop holding every book about the moon to the standard of The Moon is a Harsh Mistress.
