No matter, Hilary stumbled into a - sort of - course of study and started meeting all kinds of weir... people. Not the least of whom was one of the strangest girls imaginable with a strange "boy friend".
Every other person seemed to be some kind of cousin of his, adding to the list of weirdos - including one having his own surname. This one is eventually said to be brilliant, but can't speak his own language coherently.
A large central portion of the book skips back to spend time on earth during his semester break and goes on about more weirdos there.
I see Moon college as pretty much a lead-in to Moon College II, which is apparently not even written yet. (I wish it were.)
Well, at least it doesn't butcher the English language and syntax - unless intentionally.
The first part of the book was interesting. The second half was all clutter and seemed non purposive. I felt it wasnt going anywhere and waited patently to see what was all about but it went nowhere. (again, surprise! ) The writing feels unfocused at times. If that was what the writer was intending I feel he achieved it right.
I did enjoyed the first part, but after that I just wanted it to end. I didnt want to leave it because I always end books but it was hard for me. There seems to be a second book in the works. I hope the author keeps getting better at it.
I couldn't focus because I was blinded by hate for this book, so all those odd jumps from the moon to summer vacations back on Earth? Made no sense. Maybe Litwack should try writing some bizarro.
Will definitely not be reading the sequel.
As the title suggests a lot of the story takes place in a college on the moon - a location that is made to feel exotic enough to be interesting but not so much that one ends up getting lost and confused. But cosmic college becomes really interesting once love enters the picture in the form of an outworldly beauty who captures Hilary's heart in an instant. As the story progresses we are greeted with more and more twists and turns until most things we thought we knew about the characters and the setting no longer holds true.
When I reached the end of "Moon College" I wanted more and luckily Geoffrey Litwack saved it on the last page by promising more in "A Path For Beasts".
And I certainly look forward to it.
