Publisher's Summary

Thomas Perkins, stumbling and drunk, feels that the moon is hanging big and bright to torment him, to remind him of his pain. It serves only to put him in his place and keep him there. If not for the jilts of his best friend, Jim, he would not find any semblance of peace, yet Jim, the only source of reason in his life, cannot convince him of the foolishness of his claims.

An Interesting Irony Between Friends

TORMENT MOON was a good solid short about two friends, Thomas who was drunk who thought the moon was there just to torture him. Jim was his friend with reason who set him straight. There was good back and forth with these two. The story was visual as well.

JASON MITCHELL did a nice job narrating the story. He has good vocal skills and I'd be interested in hearing more from both author and reader.

Good story, but I wanted more

This was a short story about a man that had been dumped by his girlfriend and felt as if the moon was mocking him, while he had been out drinking with his buddy one night. It was a good story that could have led up to something better, but it kind of stopped suddenly with no closure in my opinion. Author was on the right track with this one. Narration was good too.

Not bad, all things considered

I listened to the audiobook version of this book. I liked the narration, the voice was very fitting with the characters. Just as good was the tale itself. I wouldn't really call it a tale though, since it was more like one episode of something much bigger. The audiobook was around 12 minutes long. It really was too bad that it ended so soon: I was expecting more, the last line didn't seem to fit. It was as though Thomas was experiencing a nervous breakdown and Jim was only beginning to see the value of their friendship. I wanted to know if the sobre Thomas would go through with the drunk Thomas' decisions. Or whether the sobre Thomas was any different to the drunk Thomas.

Believe me, from what I heard, this was a terrific piece. I just see ample opportunity for the writer to extend the tale. Of course I do prefer quality over quantity, and it was for this reason that I gave this book a four star rating. I find that there are some books which drag far too much, and the dialogue just seems to go round and round, not really getting anywhere. So, I would much rather listen to something with a clear direction, as I'm sure many other readers appreciate. There was a more than adequate level of description involved, perhaps not so much of the characters, but definitely of the setting. I've read books which leave this out, and tend to be wholly dialogue. So, again, in that context, this book is not bad at all. Just be mindful, after all it's 12 minutes long.

I received this book through Audiobook Boom.

Torment Moon

I'm not sure what to think... I wanted to like this story and needed more and that wasn't delivered. The author did an ok job for as short as this was, but I didn't care for the way the narrator delivered this.

Short and Interesting

Well done story. Good narration. Definitely could be expanded into a full book.

Tormented Moon


Two men are laying on the grass looking at the moon and one, Tom, discusses how the moon is following him because of his misfortune. The moon is mocking him. This is because his girl left him.

Then Tom discusses his plans to go to Vietnam to win his girl back, because there is nothing more genuine than a man in uniform.

Those are the two main things in the 12 minute book.

I hope this is part of the series, because as it was, it was a bit hard for me to understand the purpose. Otherwise, it was well-written and well performed.

Notes: I could recommend it to any audience.
Stars: Overall 4, performance 4, story 3
