Chocolate Chocolate Moons
By Jackie Kingon

Star Rating: 4 out of 5
In this futuristic story of gourmet food and shady interplanetary business deals, Molly Marbles seeks to find her place in the world, or rather, in the solar system. Molly is an overweight Earth woman in a universe that prizes the tall, thin figures of those born and raised on low-gravity heavenly bodies, such as Mars.  Everything changes for her when she begins college on the Moon. 
Jackie Kingon's stuffs her writing full of puns, plays on words, and food similes. For example, the characters wear Dolce and Banana, and Molly drives along the Carpal Tunnel to get to the mall. When I first began reading, I thought, "This book is so silly!" but I got into the spirit of it and laughed out loud throughout the whole story. It is a quick read, and the foodie version of Jasper Fforde's The Eyre Affair. Molly is an instantly likeable character, and Kingon's wordplay is so fun, it is hard to resist this quirky novel.

I enjoyed the author's take on eating and weight loss in the future. I'm not so sure that in 300 years everyone will have names that mimic places/products from our time. I can't say I laughed out loud, but it was an amusing story and I enjoyed reading it. The switches mid-chapter between first-person and third-person narrative were sometimes confusing. And I think I got a little confused with the plot, sometimes it felt like I was reading two different stories. But the characters were interesting and I appreciated the epilogue, knowing the ultimate fate of the characters was nice.

I downloaded this book hoping for a good comedic read. I tried...I lasted into Chapter 2. I honestly thought Chapter 1 was some sort of dream or flashback and sadly it wasn't. This book is a futuristic sci-fi comedy, except that I didn't find it funny. Maybe I didn't last long enough to get to the funny part.

I would equate it to trying to read Spongebob Square pants - but it's not geared for children. Because they are over weight they live in outer space and everything is made of food/chocolate. Her boyfriend cheats on her and she moves to another planet. That's as far as I got.

I downloaded this wanting something funny to read based on the many reviews. After reading about 30 minutes into it I had not found even one thing that was remotely funny. Or interesting. Different strokes, I guess.

Want to laugh out loud over food and dieting? Jackie Kingon's futuristic mystery Chocolate Chocolate Moons provides enough entertainment to keep you light hearted with no calories. When the protagonist Molly Marbles decides to attend Neil Armstrong University on the Moon because her 287 Earth pounds will only be 47.6 the fun serious begins. And when her favorite candy Chocolate Moons are poisoned she finds a delicious way to solve the crime. A treat for those who love word-plays and zany comedy.

This was silly, goofy, quirky, not to be taken seriously at all - and I loved it! I can't decide if the author is twisted and demented or simply brilliant. This book was so far out of my genre range it really shocked me that I starting liking it immediately.
This was part Mystery, part Sci-Fi futuristic, with a touch of Chick-Lit that takes place on the moon and Mars. It was kind of The Jetsons meets Shopaholic, LOL.

The characters in this book were very likable. Molly is just adorable, sweet cute funny someone you would want as your friend. I didn't feel like the male characters were developed quite as well, or at least I didn't relate to them as much. but then Molly was the main character. and I loved her.
I love the names in this book - Pluto Pastrami, Breezy Point and Decibel Point, Scheherazade, Sandy Andreas, Billings Montana, Jersey Shore, Chef Rachel X-Ray - hahaha. The whole book is very quirky like that.

There a lot of play on words. It was almost slap-stick humor, which surprises me that I enjoyed it so much. But there was also that touch of a[...] It wasn't a cold comedy, it had a very warm undertone.

A few quotes -

"Organic products have no preservatives therefor a shorter shelf life... I love preservatives, because I can't throw anything out."

"They can't even agree on how many filets in a Mignon, something the average school child knows. But when they went head to toe about what's beyond the bed and the bath, he knew he had made a mistake. "

and my favorite -

"I'll have the vegetable burger with the vegetables on the side" Lois says.
"Same for me" Becky says. "But I'll have the vegetables with the burger on the side."
"Any Dessert?

I would like to post the following review from the SAN FRANCISCO BOOK REVIEW.

In this futuristic story of gourmet food and shady interplanetary business deals, Molly Marbles seeks to find her place in the world, or rather, in the solar system. Molly is an overweight Earth woman in a universe that prizes the tall, thin figures of those born and raised on low-gravity heavenly bodies, such as Mars. Everything changes for her when she begins college on the Moon. She no longer worries about dieting, and she can begin to focus on her passion for cooking and eating delicacies, such as duck breast in a coriander fig sauce.

She and her husband suddenly find themselves penniless and forced to move to Mars, where nearly everyone is thin and they only eat food supplements, if they eat anything at all. Molly once again finds herself on the outside looking in, but when she takes a job in security at Culinary Institute of Mars, home of the Candy Universe, Molly finds her niche. Unfortunately, Molly discovers that her favorite candy, Chocolate Chocolate Moons, is poisoned! She and her friends must catch the candy-poisoning culprits and ensure they receive their just desserts!

Jackie Kingon’s stuffs her writing full of puns, plays on words, and food similes. For example, the characters wear Dolce and Banana, and Molly drives along the Carpal Tunnel to get to the mall. When I first began reading, I thought, “This book is so silly!” but I got into the spirit of it and laughed out loud throughout the whole story. It is a quick read, and the foodie version of Jasper Fforde’s The Eyre Affair. Molly is an instantly likeable character, and Kingon’s word play is so fun, it is hard to resist.
