More About the Author

Jim Hamlett (1951 - ) I've been a professional pilot for more than thirty years, flying throughout the continental U.S., Canada, and the Caribbean. Born in the heart of North Carolina, reared in Virginia's Tidewater, I've been settled in the upstate of South Carolina for nearly forty years. I live with my wife in a house we built in a quiet corner at the foot of a mountain. "Moe" is my first novel. My short story "Squall Line" is the first to appear in an anthology of stories entitled "Out of the Storm."

I'm currently working on the sequel to "Moe" and a series of short stories entitled "Fruit of the Spirit," nine stories based on Galatians 5:22-23.

There are many reasons to suggest a good book: a strong, engaging, internally consistent plot; real-life characters you feel like you've met before or wish you could; accessible, beautiful sentences which draw you along and lift you up; conflict and tension; insights into the common and not-so-common plights of what it means to be a part of the human race; a setting easy to envision and feel a part of. It's all there between the covers of Moe, a simply great story which teaches, encourages, motivates and leaves you smiling with satisfaction.

"Moe" is an interesting book because it presents a solid Christian message in a very unique way. The setting and circumstances are striking for their combination of the familiar and the unfamiliar. Most of us can relate to the challenges of relationships within a church, or watching people we know grapple with illness or the death of a loved one. Few of us can relate to the challenges of being a "little person" or growing up in a Scottish orphanage. This combination provides a fascinating blend. I find the story refreshingly different from other Christian story-novels I have read. The characters are vivid and colorful while being warmly "real". Woven through the whole story is a beautiful theme of friendship. I recommend this book!

For me, growing up in the realm of Church politics, as the son of a South Carolina Methodist Minister, it was very easy to relate to many of the characters in Moe. I feel that Jim Hamlett has written an accurate portrayal of personalities and interactions typical for that type of setting. He's created a great character with Moe, who's a very like-able and interesting fellow. The mix of humor, awkwardness, and drama was well blended to provide a very enjoyable read. Great job! I'm looking forward to reading more about the experiences of Moe in the future.

A friend gave me this book, and I agreed to read it.

Then I found out that it was classified as "Christian literature." I've read books from this genre that were basically hundreds of pages of judgement or opinion on moral and even political issues, thinly disguised as a "story."

So I dreaded opening the book, but once I got started reading it I found myself enjoying it much more than I had expected. Not only did I forget that I was reading Christian literature, I forgot that I was reading. The very best writing is so well-crafted and tightly edited that it "disappears" from view and leaves you noticing nothing but the story, the characters and the scenes.

The characters are deep and appealing, and the focus is on the friendships between them. The book includes very complex and believable descriptions of many kinds of friendships, including the easy, natural friendships between children; the more complicated friendships between adults that have grown apart and have different views; and the most difficult friendships when there are serious disagreements - complete with awkward silences, unreturned phone calls, avoiding each other at the convenience store, and even raised voices.

We get to know the characters and watch as they struggle with the deep questions about friendship.

"How do I juggle my important friendships with my busy life and all the demands on my time?"
"How do I show support for a friend in difficult circumstances when I don't know what to say?"
"Do I confront my friend when I disagree with him or should I just try to ignore his behavior?"

Moe is a book that will stay on my shelf. It needs to be read again (I read it much too quickly the first time) but I've already bought copies for friends who will also love it.

They will also look askance at me for giving them a "Christian" book, and will probably dread starting it as well. But I look forward to the conversations afterward.

This is a wonderful book peopled with living, breathing people. Moe, the title character, is a lovable fellow. I was rooting for him from the start.

This book will appeal to people who like Jan Karon's Mitford books. I hope more are on the way, because I'm attached to the characters and I want to see what happens to them. I want to see what happens with Moe's relationships with people from his past, and I want to see if the secretary ever trades in her chocolates for salads, and I want to see the new couples struggle and I want to see if the broken-up couples get back together.

I was very attracted to the less-than-perfect Christians in the book who were all just like people in the church I go to. I love Moe, best, for his commitment to Christ and his struggles with loneliness.

I don't think this was a perfect book. But when I considered how many stars to give, I had to go with five because the book kept me interested. When I wasn't reading it I was thinking about getting back to it. I teared up in places. I laughed in places. So...it's a five-star book.

I think the cover is not as good as the book deserves. If the publisher happens to be reading...I'd suggest they try that place where designers compete for jobs. 99 designs dot com. Or hire a new design guy. This cover doesn't stink, by any means, but... this book is going to be attractive to the people who like Mitford. So I think if the titles and covers of future books were more like Mitford books that might be good.

There are going to be more books, I hope! Really. I want to see more of Moe.
