A Unique Story.

Would you listen to Night of the Purple Moon again? Why?

Definitely. I loved the idea of the purple moon and how it came about and the story is sufficiently fast paced to read again. I also loved the narrators voice.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Night of the Purple Moon?

The way the children banded together.

Have you listened to any of Deanna Moffitt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't listened to any by her before but I definitely will again.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I think I listened to 4 hours straight one day because it was so good.

Any additional comments?

A great story and I really enjoyed listening to it. I hope the rest get turned into audio books because I definitely want to listen to them.

I enjoyed the book in spite of the unbelievability of the story. The kids were way too knowledgeable and mature for their age. I got past that as the story progressed.
