Read from February 24 to March 01, 2010

** spoiler alert ** I've read other books by McDevitt before, and while they are usually light sci/fi, and adventure, they certainly are entertaining and fun. Not this book, though. I am amazed that I even finished it. It was poorly written, boring, too many incidental characters (whose only purpose it seems is to appear in the book as a caricature of some stereottype, and then die).

The event of a comet hitting the moon and the people dealing with the aftermath could have been a very, heart-pounding and exciting story. However, Moonfall, reads like this:

First this happened.
Then this happened.
Then this happened.
Then something happened.
Then this happened.
and so on for the first half.

The second half reads like:
and then this happened and someone dies.
and then this happened and someone dies.
and then this happened and someone dies.
...
Ugh.
