I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review This is a story about Hilary Litwack It s a story about young love, finding it and sort of fighting for it He s 17 and heading to a college on the moon First, let me say, I enjoyed the distinct voice in this story Hilary is a unique character, and his personality came through in the dialogue and the voice He s just a regular teen, going through the every day motions, until he meets Camille She s beautiful, mysterious, and doesn [...]
I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.In short this book just wasn t for me I felt no connection at all to the characters and most of the times their actions left me confused view spoiler I never connected with the main characters It s mentioned several times in the book that Hilary our protagonist has a lot of anxiety and is generally not in a very good place in his life right now The confusing and frustrating about this though, is that it s never mentioned WHY thi [...]
I ended up downloading this book after seeing a 2 23 tweet by Kat Dennings Litwack is her brother, and according to Kat he spent 12 years writing this book.Moon College is one of those books that a small number of people will immediately think is a genius classic While reading it, I kept seeing the possibility for a movie, and Litwack s already got some great tie ins going within his social media sources I mean, when was the last time you read a book that offered you mixtape playlists to go with [...]
A sci fi buildungsroman that reflects both my college experience the people not the moon setting, although many campuses are removed from the outside world in their own way and growing up in NJ And comes with indie music set lists for each character What could I ask It s a little Brian Francis Slattery, a little Francesca Lia Block, maybe like if Kevin Smith wrote the Hunger Games It is kind of macho in parts, with the drugs n guns kind of stuff, and y know, not enough descriptions of the outfi [...]
It was a quick read The writing style was interesting enough to keep me reading If you are offended by harsh language, drugs, and sex sometimes crudely spoken about then don t pick up this book It was kind of a gritty, bleak style of writing It had a little sci fi, a little romance, and delved into the mind of the male protagonist It did not keep me on the edge of my seat and sometimes I wasn t sure where the focus of the book is I didn t really feel the characters drew me in enough I would have [...]
I won this book through a First Reads giveaway.I entered to win because I liked the idea of college on the moon a college experience in an interesting setting The book lived up to my expectations, I really liked part one and three when the main character was on the moon My favorite scenes are at the beginning of the book the journey to the moon and the first days of exploring new places and meeting new people Part two of the book when the main character came back to earth was less captivating Th [...]
The premise of this book plants the story of a young man living on the moon and studying there It also has a beautiful girl surprise surprise and he falls for her.The first part of the book was interesting The second half was all clutter and seemed non purposive I felt it wasnt going anywhere and waited patently to see what was all about but it went nowhere again, surprise The writing feels unfocused at times If that was what the writer was intending I feel he achieved it right.I did enjoyed the [...]
I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review This book is such an oddity to me Certainly not bad but at times so scientific I felt as if I was reading a text book for pleasure Camille s secret is than I expected and now with the cliff hanger I want to know who the boy in his bedroom was and can they save Cam The cousin Vlad was crazy as a nutcase He needs locked up for his antics This whole group of drug using, moon traveling, college age kids left my head spinning a litt [...]
Warning You must not be offended by drugs,theft,violence, and sexual content.Moon College is full of love, mystery, and life I was kept guessing as what the big mystery could be with the lead female role This is also is followed by a huge cliffhanger ending Going to college on the moon sounds pretty cool right Well, what if you find out what it s supose to be a cover for, would you still want to attend This has a lot of similarity to real college life for some people and something way out there, [...]
I had the pleasure of reading Moon College by Geoffrey Litwack last night It started out as conventional science fiction with a moon shuttle and a college in Moon Base Serenity which was very well described It then morphed into a character driven story about a 17 year old boy s journey into adulthood with familiar issues e.g bullying and unique challenges major spoiler if disclosed Since my teenage years are long behind me, I don t read much with teenage protagonists, but I really was captivate [...]
Although it takes place in a special place the characters have problems as ordinary teenagers, such as love, school, friends and even drug issues Sci fi gadgets on one hand connected with some historical realia e.g Litvaks see article on Litvaks makes the story even interesting I missed a bit the insight to the minds of other characters than Hilary, though To sum up, it s a quite good piece of reading for relax.
I won this book in a Firstreads giveaway.That doesn t affect how I feel about the book.The idea was new to me.The college on the moon part.Sure, there s an academy for vampires and Hogwarts for wizards, but the moon it was really unexpected to me and I never thought of it.It was a quick read and one of the shortest books I ve read so far this year.But just because a book is short doesn t mean that it s not good.I wonder what book two will have though.
Good book not what I expected This is about a boy name Hilary yes,I said Hilary, he is attending college on the moon He has all these problems like depression, anxiety attacks and he s afraid of everything He meets this girl name Camille and instantly falls in love with her Camille has a big secret that no one knows about This book will sake you through Hilary s first year of college on the moon I can t wait to read and see what appens in his second year of moon college
At first I wasn t particulary fond of the writing style and I m still not sure I like it That said, it s a really interesting idea for a book and I will read the next one because I have to know whats gonna happen next.Over all a pretty good book
This was a really good book With different out looks
