    One thought on “Lunar Discovery: Let the Space Race Begin”

    1. This is my first experience with Mercer, and perhaps a horrible book to start with as even the way the synopsis reads, its set up blatantly as a sequel bait that apparently we’re supposed to beg the author for? Uhm, I won’t begging the author to continue this. Its very lackluster. The information, the ideas, the characters are all there, but this is not a perfectly cut gem of a story. A diamond in the rough that could shape up? Possibly.For a full review, pleaseclick here.

    2. I picked up a copy of Lunar Discovery during a recent bargain promotion, and though the title & description made it look a little derivative, I thought it might be kind of fun. And although the stock characters of scientists and politicians could easily have been lifted from any number of science fiction novels, what I wasn't prepared for was how many hours would rapidly disappear as I got increasingly hooked on the exciting story within. Put simply, I couldn't put it down, and there were ti [...]

    3. Too many science errorsIn the first sentence the author insists that the oxygen in the air is burning. oxygen is a catalyst in combustion and does not itself burn. That's why it's called oxidation.Then the lead character I named Rock???? And it gets worse from their. I wish I hadn't bought it.

    4. A great beginning. A SciFi political nail biter! Will there be a sequal?A fast paced drama involving the multinational space race scramble to claim an artifact discovered on the dark side of the moon! A literary feast with technology as the mane course.

    5. Great adventure story, in the vein of space race movies like Apollo 13 and Mission To Mars.The story remains gripping and exciting from start to finish. Most of the characters are interesting, if a little stereotypical, although this works very well here.There are some unnecessary tones of your standard American patriotism(view spoiler)[Russia and China are being portrayed as either too mired in their inferior cultures or simply less competent than our highly skilled and morally superior America [...]

    6. I started reading this and almost gave up after the first chapter or two but in the end I was glad I persevered. When a signal is discovered on the dark side of the moon, the Americans, the Chinese and the Russians begin a race to identify the source.The writing wasn't the greatest (3 star) and would have benefited from more editing, but the story was excellent (5 star) and more than made up for it, so an average of 4 star seems fair.If you enjoyed The Martian, you'll probably like this.

    7. Back to the moon!As current as today, an unexpected signal is discovered as a moon lander stops communicating. The race is on to solve the mystery. The big three powers all want to be the first on scene. How it all turns out makes this a cracking story. Dedicated individuals in each country place excellent performance of their jobs before politics and personal gain, and open the way to the future.

    8. Fun, and interesting, though with all honesty, the book is too short to do justice to the topic and there were a lot of small details, that I was missing greatly. Some political stuff, that was not thought out well enough…I won't be reading the next book, as it didn't grip my heart or my mind the way I would wish. Still… interesting concept, if only it was developped a bit more :)

    9. The book begins slowly and suffers from clunky dialog and repetition. However, it has a reasonably convoluted plot and picks up speed near the end, leaving a good hook into the next book in the series. Still, I may not continue with the next book, since the unpolished writing interferes with the story.

    10. Unexpectedly nice surpriseExciting book with well developed characters as well as a well laid out plot. Although the finish was somewhat predictable, Mr. Mercer does throws in enough twist keep your attention until the end. Looking forward to the second book in the series and the continued development and interaction of the characters.

    11. KEPT YOU READINGThe story was outstanding, I couldn't stop reading until it was finished. Always knew the Chinese was worthless as seen in this book. We should keep NASA funded, because it will bite us in the ass, as seen by this book. A MUST read.

    12. Unexpected SurpriseI bought this book as a result of a suggestion from . I didn't have high hopes for it because I hadn't heard anything about it previously. The book is really good with a truly original concept. Worth the read.

    13. TechnicalA little too technical for the average reader. Some suspenseful anxiety toward the end. Typical political situation that excludes man first.

    14. The story line flowed well the character development could have been a little stronger. But not a bad story line and provided a few nights worth of entertainment.

    15. The space race has basically stopped, everyone is playing nice, there is an international space station being shared by the Russians and the Americans that they shared the cost of, the Chinese are experimenting with their own space craft, and all is ok. That is until a strange signal, and then an alien device is found on the far side of the moon. Then all bets are off. The Americans are unceremoniously kicked off of the space station, it is now Russian property, all international relations stop, [...]

    16. Something alien is found on the moon, and the big three - USA, China, and Russia, all want to get there first. Told from the perspective of all 3 countries, things get interesting as each country struggles to get to the moon, but none really have the capability to safely get it done. WWIII hangs in the balance as things escalate, first with outlawed weapons in space, then then secret projects brought to light. The author does a nice job of developing the characters on all 3 sides. Unfortunately, [...]

    17. Another audiobook I started while on my road trip. The book started off a little slow but really built up momentum as the space race progressed and was really exciting as the book reached its climax. I found it really interesting to see the different approaches (both in how they built the craft and how they interacted with their teams) taken by the three different countries (US, Russia, China).As narrator, Mark Boyett does a first-rate job. He voices the characters well, and he really does a goo [...]

    18. Fun, hard science fiction that mixes heavy detail and consistent action and drama. Heavily enjoyable throughout and lacks any boring lapses. The only downside was the lack of detailed character development - with its size and the multiple storylines needing to be properly finished, the author didn't have much room for detailed character depth. Not a serious issue though - this one is a gem and shouldn't be missed if you like hard-SF.

    19. Pretty darn good start. Interesting characters, they really do a great job of bringing back that space race feel and pit the Russians, Chinese, and Americans in a pretty interesting tech race. Some Martian elements that make science accessible, some really solid characters, seems like a strong start to a series. I'm a bit burned on space books, but will revisit this series soon.

    20. This was ok. It's almost the perfectly not good enough to praise but not bad enough to hate. I finished reading this about two hours ago and I already can't tell you more about it than what you'd get from reading the back of the book.If you need a palate cleanser or need to pass time and literally you could do a lot worse but you could also do better.

    21. I loved Lunar DiscoveryI rarely give 5 stars since I consider that as almost perfect. But this book deserves all 5. Nice personal touches. Lots of easily navigable technology speak. A quick read with short paragraphs. Awesome, multifaceted story lines. Wonderfully written.

    22. This was really a great read. The discovery of an alien transmission from the dark side of the moon sets off a race between the US, Russia and China to see who can get there first. I was on the edge of my seat the whole way. Highly recommended!

    23. Good premise, but a bit tedious. An example of a book that should skip trying to be a series and give us more about the aliens and less about the flat, dull human characters and predictable "space race."And I say this as someone who prefers solar system sci-fi to interstellar sci-fi these days.

    24. Really enjoyed the book I really wish it had more closure at the end but understand it was pretty open for the sequel. It was nice that it seemed like this was something that was in the near future. I am looking forward to continuing the story and reading the second one!

    25. Very intriguing This books from start to finish keeps you engaged. Extraterrestrial discovery, Modern Governments At each other's throats and a race to the moon with modern tech. Can't wait for the next part!

    26. Wow. Loved the book. It reminded me of all the good things about Armageddon. The emotional development of the main characters, the painfully real politics, and sad human reactions. I look forward to the next book.

    27. Good space race storyI enjoyed this story about an international race to the moon. My one complaint is that there were too many technical discussions. It would make a good movie, however.

    28. I hate books that leave me hanging while I have to wait for the next one in the series. *sighMaybe it will pop up on soon.

    29. Space Race IndeedLoved this book. Can't wait for the movie. The author really summed up the 3 "superpowers" current relationships. The USA is so phenomenal!
