    One thought on “Moonstruck”

    1. Again I found the ideas really great the delivery less so Part of that is the narrator I just don t care for him much his mispronunciations drive me slightly nuts More is on the author, though The story drags in a lot of places the characters don t really pop Nothing awful, just a rather long story that doesn t really get my motor running.The ideas, though Fantastic ones Really well done, especially the technology That s why this gets 3 stars instead of 2.

    2. This first contact themed book came with blurbs of praise on the front and back by Brin and Sawyer, writers I used to respect Ok, that is a little harsh, but suffice it to say I did not share their feelings about Moonstruck I will give the book some credit For example there was good pacing and the continuity was sound The guy obviously knows his physics The beginning and the end of the book did have some ideas that were intriguing enough that I was able to look past the amateurish writing style [...]

    3. A great, classic first encounter novel for the 21st century think Childhood s End, The Day the Earth Stood Still, and To Serve Man, served up with the cutting edge media savvy of Jon Stewart Lerner writes with grace, surety, humor, and political wisdom that draws on sources ranging from Damocles to Churchill I snapped up this novel on Cape Cod Bay one summer, and learned anew why I relish science fiction.

    4. Not bad with some nice touches but feel it could have been a short story novella or an outer limits twighlight zone episode.

    5. A little too herky jerky and fast and loose with plausibility Some good stuff, some terribly banal stuff You ll finish it, but it won t stick with you.

    6. Interesting concepts, but line many hard science fiction novels, while the science was good the characters were flat Plot moved along at a good pace, though.
