Review & Wrap-Up:
The Girl From Our Moon: Entanglement was a very interesting read. It focuses a lot on environmental issues and the ways humans are killing the planet. I found all of this very interesting, however there are a few chapters where this is all that is talked about, like the author is going off on a rant about society's current state on the matter.
There is a romantic relationship between the main character, Luna, and her college professor, Paul Sterling, that is extremely awkward and mildly inappropriate. Luna, being an angel, can hear people's thoughts and she uses this to her advantage when she listens to Paul's inappropriate thoughts about her to get closer to him. She then can't decide if she is falling in love with Paul, only using him to complete her quest, or if he really is her soulmate.
The book itself has not been published, and I feel that this is what really hurts the book because the idea behind the story is there, it just wasn't fleshed out very well. There are many errors (spelling, punctuation, and tense to name a few). Because the novel has never gone through editing there are also a lot of very confusing parts as well. The language that is used is childish, but then random educated words and theories, such as quantum entanglement, are thrown in in what seems to be a hope to make it sound more educated.
If you're a mother earth activist and are into a hippie, psychedelic read, then this is the book for you! Enjoy books about non-traditional angles and their fight against evil, this is a good read! The Girl From Our Moon has the pure innocence of The Littlest Angel, the feisty never grow up attitude of Peter Pan, and the heroic demigod adventures of Percy Jackson. I enjoyed reading The Girl From Our Moon. It was by far the craziest and most interesting indie book I've read to date, it just needs some help to make it into the book I know it could be.
From one bookaholic to another, I hope I’ve helped you find your next fix.
