What the Critics Say

"The book is well written with a flowing style, plenty of dialogue, and lots of action....Although Moon is only 10, older readers will also enjoy the book and will better understand the adults' perspectives." (School Library Journal)

    "A Modern Huckleberry Finn"

    Engaging adolescent readers is no easy task, in today's fast paced, action oriented, virtual reality enhanced video game culture. Alabama Moon is a book that should make any young boy who loves adventure and the outdoors drop his video game controller and lose himself in Moon's escapades. Raised in the wilderness by his Viet-Nan Vet Father, Moon is left to fend for himself when his dad dies. It is not nature that frightens Moon but the complexities of modern civilization that seem brutal and unfair. Moon finds away to face the challenges that confront him, triumph over the cruel sheriff and change a lot of people's lives in a positive way. A modern Huckleberry Finn, there is no problem he can't solve, nothing he can't make for himself and no one he can not eventually defeat or win over to his side. Quite an accomplishment for an eleven-year-old boy! An engaging adventure for readers of all ages.

    "Great Southern Story"
    If you could sum up Alabama Moon in three words, what would they be?

    My 16 year old grand son has to read this for school, and he hates to read but was reading it because he really likes it, (and that's something) so it is taking him a while because he reads slow, so I got the audible version for him and he is enjoying listening to it and following along. He says it's a great book, when he gets through, I will read it.


    What other book might you compare Alabama Moon to and why?

    not sure


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

    No


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

    No my grandson can't sit still that long


    Any additional comments?

    If he likes it it must be pretty good, can't wait to read or listen myself
