I thought this book was hokey. The attempts at multi-racial/multi-cultural inclusion were insulting, and the sexuality reminded me of the way sleazy neo-hippies try to seduce people.

Ren I am so so with you on that. Everyone loves it. I was not impressed.

Blake Fraina I just posted my review of The Man Who Fell In Love With The Moon this evening and decided to see if there was anyone else on the planet who felt the same way about it that I did. There were plenty of people who didn't like it for various reasons, but I think you are more on the same page with me. I felt the book was waaaay too obvious. And yeah, I have no problem with free love, but considering the time-period the sexual aspect of the story was a bit implausible. Your review was brilliantly succint.
