Moonstruck | [Edward M. Lerner]

Moonstruck

The moon has suddenly acquired its own satellite: a two-mile-across starship that represents a hitherto unsuspected Galactic Commonwealth. The F'thk, a vaguely centaur-like member species for whom Earth's ecology is hospitable, have been sent to evaluate humanity for prospective membership. The F'thk are overtly friendly but very private - "Information is a trade good." As Earth's scientists struggle to understand their secretive appraisers, odd inconsistencies emerge. As troubling as those anomalies is the reemergence of a bit of insanity humanity thought it had outgrown: cold war and nuclear saber-rattling.

Publisher's Summary

Will our first contact with aliens be the dawn of a new tomorrow - or the last act in human history?

The moon has suddenly acquired its own satellite: a two-mile-across starship that represents a hitherto unsuspected Galactic Commonwealth. The F'thk, a vaguely centaur-like member species for whom Earth's ecology is hospitable, have been sent to evaluate humanity for prospective membership. The F'thk are overtly friendly but very private - "Information is a trade good." As Earth's scientists struggle to understand their secretive appraisers, odd inconsistencies emerge. As troubling as those anomalies is the reemergence of a bit of insanity humanity thought it had outgrown: cold war and nuclear saber-rattling. The Galactics' arrival may signify the start of a glorious new era, or it may presage the cataclysmic end of human civilization. Which outcome do the aliens really desire.... And what will they do if humanity refuses to play its assigned role?

    Story
    "Altered Carbon knockoff"
    What did you like best about Moonstruck? What did you like least?

    The characters and the aliens are imaginative. The plot jumps around way too much and it is hard to keep track of who is who.


    What could Edward M. Lerner have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make it much shorter- it really drags in spots.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator is ok, but the volume goes up and down and I thought it was from my iPhone.


    Could you see Moonstruck being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no
