Reasons why you will like this book:
Everything happens in the space of one night. Remember when nights had territories? When darkness seethed with possibility? When you could fall in love in the course of a single night and change your life as well? Though it will take you a few days to read it, as long as your characters dwell in that single night, so will a part of you, from first page till last.
In the world of this book art matters, love matters, poetry matters, and it reminds you of being sixteen when you did think about how art collided with life, when you knew how to look at a wall.
This book has its own beating heart. The characters are at least as real as you are. Probably a little realler if truth be told.
I really think you ought to read this book.
Love Me Who Has Read This Book
The writing is just beautiful and I was captivated from the beginning. Everything about this story drew me in and kept me reading.
some of my favorite passages:
""I like her, just not anything more than that. She used to do this thing where she'd lean over and kiss me and then take a break to whisper hilarious stuff in my ear and then kiss me again. I'd be screaming, 'What's wrong with you? Fall in love with her, you dick.'"
"She didn't think that was weird?"
"Inside. I was screaming on the inside...""
"I liked that he had hair that was growing without a plan. A smile that came out of nowhere and left the same way. That he was tall enough so I had to look up at him in my dream sequences. I really liked his t-shirts."
We meet Lucy and Ed and their friends on the night they finish year twelve. Well... most of them. They are on the search for Shadow and Poet because Lucy is convinced that Shadow would be perfect for her. Little does she know she already knows him.
I love the building relationship between Ed and Lucy. It was sweet and lovely and just want I needed today.
Warning for those who are more sensitive there are some choice words such as the f-word and others but other than that there was a nice Aussie feel overall!
Graffiti Moon does not need introducing, nor does it really need another raving review. There are plenty of those already out there. Even if you're living under a rock, or on Mars, or you're completely against technology and Internet - I still think you must have at least heard about this book by now. It's been on everyone's lips ever since it first popped up on netGalley, readers were gushing about it, it's been hyped up to the Moon and back, and it literally took over the blogosphere for a while. I'm fairly certain most of us are still reeling from it. So, no, Graffiti Moon does not need introducing, but I simply can't host a Contemporary Fiction Month without featuring this brilliant, spellbinding and completely magical love story, in a similar way that I wouldn't be able to make a tuna sandwich without, well, tuna. This book is a fantastic addition to the genre, and if - for whatever reason - you haven't read it yet, you need to realize one thing: You're missing out on something extraordinary.
"Every time he looked at me I felt like I'd touched my tongue to the tip of a battery. In art class I'd watch him lean back and listen and I was nothing but zing and tingle. After a while, the tingle turned to electricity, and when he asked me out my whole body amped to a level where technically I should have been dead. I had nothing in common with a sheddy like him, but a girl doesn't think straight when she's that close to electrocution.Read more ›
