Editorial Reviews

Review

“Kessel’s wonderfully weighty novel is speculative fiction at its finest. This is impossible to put down.” (-- Library Journal *STARRED REVIEW*)

"The Moon and the Other is funny, sexy and charming.” (-- The Washington Post)

"Kessel’s complex ideas and worldbuilding will appeal to any fan of character- and culture-driven speculative fiction." (-- Publishers Weekly)

"A serious book about gender politics of the future, yet it's accessible and light-hearted for the subjects it focuses on.

At around 600 pages, The Moon and the Other is one of the longer books on this list, but the rich characters and intricate lunar societies make it feel much shorter." (The Best Science Fiction Books of 2017 (So Far) -- Popular Mechanics)

"Science fiction is a genre that’s uniquely suited for making the internal into the external. Authors can take an intangible issue, whether it’s a relationship problem, a philosophical belief, or a scientific quandary, and make it material. John Kessel’s new novel The Moon and the Other does just that, playing out a complex, but relevant story about politics, gender identity, and social conflict through a series of characters living on Earth’s inhabited Moon. A wonderful, complicated, and beautiful novel, it asks what responsibilities people have to the societies they inhabit." (Andrew Liptak, -- The Verge)

"Science fiction often shows us ways society could be different in the future. One recent example is The Moon and the Other, which presents a fresh take on the idea of a matriarchal society." (-- David Barr Kirtley, Wired Magazine)

"This fun, smart science fiction novel contends with gender and matters of the heart, with a message of clear-eyed hope." (-- Shelf Awareness)

"Kessel has imagined a richly detailed future world, and a strong plot full of intrigue keeps this story moving along. This is a fun diversion for sci-fi fans" (-- Kirkus Reviews)

"Kessel has crafted a compelling and complex tale, full of social commentary  and thought-provoking dire warnings of a perilous future." (-- Booklist)
