Day Moon is a futuristic Christian fiction novel. The premise of the book is interesting and I really liked how the author incorporated classic works into his story as a focal point in the plot like something to be treasured. I love books and I love reading. I can't imagine a world that would take away the books I treasure most. It would definitely be something worth fighting for.
While I liked the premise of this book, the story itself lacked quite a lot for me. It was very wordy and the plot seemed to move forward at a snail's pace. It lacked urgency and the forward momentum that captures you and keeps you wanting to know more which is especially important in a story like this one. I had a hard time staying with it and I will admit to skimming a lot without losing track of what was happening.
The characters were okay but didn't inspire me. I didn't feel that emotional connection to them or the story that I look for as a reader. The main character is supposed to be seventeen but didn't act or talk that way at all. He came across as an adult most of the time. I had to keep reminding myself that he was just seventeen.
I see a lot of potential here but unfortunately this story just fell a bit flat for me. I can tell that the author is well versed in the English language and proficient in the technical aspects of writing which is impressive. I really appreciated that this book was clean- no swearing, profanity or sexual content.
You can pick this book up on Amazon for under a dollar so if you are intrigued by the blurb and love this kind of book, give it a shot. I'm only one girl with one opinion not shared by all. :)
Content: This is a Christian fiction book so you will find talk of God and Jesus Christ. There were a few instances of mild peril and mild violence.
