There are a few time shifts in the book, and each time I found myself easing into the new direction of the story. Each shift tells us more about our main character. We get a peek into his strict religious upbringing in a coming of age section, a bit of voyeurism during a couple of interesting affairs in others, and a major deception I wasn’t prepared for that defines our character in a way that left me disliking him on a grand scale.
The one disconnect for me was one character’s fear of being exposed which allowed the deception to develop. I won’t give away any more of the story. What I will say is BECOMING MOON is a beautifully written book about angst, ambition, fear, and betrayal. The premise recalls the Faustian legend, but rather than the contract being with the devil, the character's contract is with himself.
"Becoming Moon" isn't a mad-dash thriller or "edge-of-your-seat" doomsday adventure. But this is what literary fiction is meant to be. Honest, daring, and unforgettable. A novel I highly recommend.
Kindle Scout winning Craig Hart’s book is deep, reminding us that we are a product of our choices. From the start, this protagonist bucked the system, choosing to go against tradition and his family’s wishes. Hart cleverly doesn’t name his protagonist, using him as an every man, a masthead for the universal screw-up inside each of us.
Coming from a fundamental Christian background, the main character has qualms about his actions, qualms that result in hallucinations and loathing of his father. The message of the book is: people lie, cheat, and steal. Some get away with it. Or do they?
Another reviewer mentioned this book as a modern classic. I second that endorsement. Hart draws you in with simple prose and a man-child driven by the need to succeed. In today’s world of “what’s in it for me?” it’s easy to see how this situation could transpire, even easier to see how morals and ethics are becoming less the fabric of our society and more like the out of date clothing shoved to the back of our closets. I predict you won’t quickly forget this excellent book.
