Utter TRASH!

I am a total devotee to Siverlock, this supposed sequel is a pile of pretentious and verbose carp! The play on words and knowledge reveals should be a part of conversation. NOT every single sentence! Incorporate it to the action , it should enhance, not take the place of the story line. Total Fail.

Marketed as the sequel to Myers' great underground classic, `Silverlock', `The Moon's Fire-Eating Daughter' is no such beast, although it does bear a family resemblance to that former work, as a particularly fierce house cat might to a tiger. Both books are romps through the entirety of literary history, but it is there that the similarities end. Whereas `Silverlock' was a feast of literary creations, `The Moon's Daughter' introduces us to the creators, or makers, as Myers would have it. But the ...more

Silverlock was better. That should really be a surprise to anyone, as Silverlock is so much better known. This book felt like the author knew how clever he was and why Silverlock was popular, and just went way way way too far in that direction. The end result was a much more incoherent plot and a protagonist you couldn't care less about. There were several moments that were amusing and references that when you recognized them you chortled to yourself about how clever you were, but that was too ...more

Great tribute to literature.
Way too academic.
Every page is like deciphering a literature teacher's cryptex.
However, it's got some great poetry interspersed.

My recommendation: Read Silverlock and forget this nonsense.

Just for the record, this is not a sequel to Silverlock; it does not pick up with any of the characters in that book. It's similar to Silverlock in that it has a lot of literary references.
