What did you love best about Mending the Moon?
Out of tragedy springs the beginnings of hope. Two families are impacted by a violent event that forever alters them all; but through learning to trust and by staying open, they find that their connections, sometimes very unexpected bring them together and give them renewed hope. The story is told at a slow gentle pace, focusing on the internal landscapes of the main characters. But is peppered with scenes from a comic book that holds a prominent place in the story.
What did you like best about this story?
I liked the "real" scenes. The female narrator is excellent. The Captain Cosmos scenes are not as good, maybe because the male narrator has an odd way of running sentences together without much break so I found myself not able to follow sometimes.
Which scene was your favorite?
The descriptions of the Nevada desert made me want to go there!

'cause within 15 minutes, i was ready to snooze off from boredom. which is ok, you know, you gotta give a book a chance. so i fought off sleep and continued to listen, until i got to the part about the creation of the comic-book hero--and then i just got annoyed.
because there is a culture to comics and to geekery. for some reason the reader chose to read this section as though he was nothing but a pencil-necked geek--whine and all.
total diss on geek culture, narrator, and unwarranted.
