Publisher's Summary

It coulda been worse. That's the "working epitaph" of 15-year-old Moon Landing. Not that Moon's death is imminent--far from it--but his thoughts have turned to gallows humor, as his world disintegrates along with his parents' marriage. His older brother skateboards through life with ease, but Moon is deeply troubled. Just as he is solving for romantic unknowns with a gorgeous older girl, Moon must contend with his dad's sudden absence, his mom-gone-wild's sexcapades, and his best friends' curious penchant for self-destruction. Not to mention his newfound role in agitating to end an African guerrilla's bloody rampage. To make sense of it all, Moon embarks on a quest to unravel the riddle of God's injustice to man. In this humorous and touching coming-of-age novel, Moon struggles to understand his parents--who they are, what brought them together, what broke them apart--and what that all means for his future.

Very much enjoyed this audio version.

The narrator was so enjoyable. Good story of a boy coming of age while dealing with the divorce of his dysfunctional parents.

Delightfully offbeat coming-of-age story!

The Book of Moon was frequently laugh-out-loud funny, always witty, ultimately deeply touching. My sense is that I could return to this book in a short while, listen again, and enjoy it just as much the second time. The numerous quirky, original characters were magnificently rendered by Robert Fass's impeccable reading, as was the young narrator's point of view. A delightful, unexpected gem!

What a delightful book!

This book was a real treat to listen to. A very interesting story that lead in unexpected directions, all the while making me question my personal beliefs (without hammering me with an alternate viewpoint) and pointing out many absurdities in modern commercial religions.
The principal characters were witty, insightful and often hilarious, making me wish I had friends like these back in highschool. The book left me with many thoughtful questions, but mostly wanting more! It's one of those books that you don't want to end and your find yourself thinking about what was going to happen next on their journey of discovery and wonderment.
Loved it!
