  • The Moon Dwellers on Dec. 08, 2012

         I was very excited about reading this when it was voted #1 similar to Hunger Games on a goodreads list. I'm so glad I read this! I had given up on finding a book similar to The Hunger Games but this came very close. *happy sigh. Thank you David for giving me an ARR ebook copy of Moon Dwellers!       Hmm, where do I start? Oh, right. Another cliff-hanger!! Why?! And just when I had free time too. :( I need to get my hands on Star Dwellers. *sigh I barely had time to read this but...I made sure to have time to do it. Whether it was during my break or in the middle of the night, I found myself reading it, wanting to know what was going to happen next. The action never ceased to exist in the book so it was interesting although some parts were a teeny weeny bit draggy and then some parts were too short. Other than that, I really enjoyed the book. But I was quite upset because for most of the book, Adele and Tristan weren't together so there wasn't much romance and i am a romance book junkie. Although they were constantly thinking about each other.       Another thing I like about this book is the switching POVs. Whenever I find out that a book has switching POVs I become super happy because I won't have to figure out what's going on in the other character's head and i can understand both characters more. Although for some books, it's better that way.        Anyway, I really liked the characters in the book. If a heroine can kick ass, I'm all for it because it's fun. It's not like books where the heroine is all weak and waits for her knight in shining armour to protect her-the damsel in distress. Not that I don't like those kind of books. I do but for books where there's a lot of action and war going on, I expect the heroine to at least know how to throw a punch or two and not wait for her hero to rescue her. It gets boring when she's just an observer and doing nothing but watch the others fend for her. Luckily, Adele is not one of those dainty heroines who don't like to get their hands dirty. In fact, she actually does a pretty good job at fighting. And she was also not one of those bratty teenage girls. That I am thankful for.       Now, I liked Tristan a lot. It was actually funny at times because of him and Roc. I enjoyed reading about their playful banter and was touched by their close bond. Tristan is not one of those snobbish rich dudes who's all "I am mighty and you're not worthy so bow before your highness". If he was that kind of character, I'd be royally pissed and would probably loathe him which would be a shame considering how much I liked Moon Dwellers.       I think this was a good read. Moon Dwellers is a book for people who like action with a dash of romance set in a dystopian place. I would suggest anyone who likes Hunger Games to just give this a try.
