Disaster has struck the first Moon landing to be attempted in years. Commander Jason Strong and his fellow lunar explorer Greg Johnson have become stranded with no way home. In desperation, they set off in their lunar rover to check out an anomaly they discovered on their descent. What they find will shake their beliefs and what they know of human history. It is the beginning of an adventure that will take them far out into the Solar System and to a discovery that is beyond belief.

Would you try another book from Raymond L. Weil and/or Liam Owen?

No chance of ever trying this author again.

Listening to this book one is constantly reminded of the genre that follows the pattern of: "This is John. John is a boy. John is a happy boy. "I am a happy boy", says John. This is Jane. Jane also thinks John is a happy boy. "John is a happy boy", says Jane". You know: Grade 1 narrative.

The characters are also all bland and boring, and inhumanely too good and caring and sickeningly un-human.

I just couldn't take it anymore.

Has Moon Wreck turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, there are great books in this genre, just not from this author.

What three words best describe Liam Owen’s voice?

Potentially good, but not with this level of book

What character would you cut from Moon Wreck?

The author

No skill is more important in today's world than being able to think about, understand, and act on information in an effective and responsible way. What's more, at no point in human history have we had access to so much information, with such relative ease, as we do in the 21st century. But because misinformation out there has increased as well, critical thinking is more important than ever. These 24 rewarding lectures equip you with the knowledge and techniques you need to become a savvier, sharper critical thinker in your professional and personal life.

The Galactic Empire is dying. In their high towers, the Grand Senators plot and struggle to grasp a larger share of power while on the streets, the poor struggle to survive just one more day. Chaos and anarchy are running through the megacities of Earth, while giant corporations tighten the screws and colony worlds plot to declare independence and escape the Empire's increasing demands for resources. Centuries of mismanagement are finally catching up with the human race.
