Comments Moon-Flash

  • Kristi Thompson

    I thought Fool's Run was McKillip's only science fiction, but apparently not. I also thought I'd read this at some point when I was younger, but if I did, I have no memory of it at all, not the slightest sense of deja-vu.Not nearly as obscure and allusive as her later fantasies. I really enjoyed it, so perhaps I haven't really lost my ear for McKillip. Perhaps simpler because it was a Young Adult, but mostly I think her stylistic characteristics were not at that time exaggerated.One thing that s [...]


  • Leslie Jonsson

    This is a great book. I love the two main characters. They are believable, sweet, smart and funny.


  • Diana Green

    This is the only Science Fiction book I've read by Patricia A. McKillip. I suspect it was one of her earlier works, when she was trying different genres. I thought it was quite good, and it was fun to read something different from her.


  • Christi

    A beautiful, oneiric science fiction fantasy.


  • Kelley Ceccato

    A lovely book, somewhat reminiscent of Sylvia Engdahl's Enchantress from the Stars in that it deals with the interaction between people of a primitive society and people of the Space Age. You begin thinking you're reading a fantasy novel, and then science fiction happens. It's a clever device, an intriguing plot, but as with Engdahl's novel, what really makes it work are the characters.All the books by McKillip I've read thus far have featured memorable female leads, and this foray into YA sci-f [...]


  • Kathryn

    I really enjoyed reading this, but I'm dumbfounded that it was actually two books to begin with! This slim volume had a definite story arc, characters that were interesting and sympathetic, and McKillip's signature ability to give you enough depth and back-story to make a vibrant world, but not quite enough to satiate roused curiosity.The reason this review isn't five stars is that there wasn't much going on besides the main plot; McKillip usually has two or three characters who are each going t [...]


  • Stefanie

    Probably a 3.5. I liked the first book better than the second, it had more of a narrative thrust to it. Still, they both bring a nice blend between the "magic" of primitive societies and the science and possibility of advanced, space exploring societies. Kyreol is more likeable (maybe because she has more to do) in the first one, but Terje makes up for it in the second with having the real conflict in the choices he has to make.This was SUCH a sharp contrast with the book McKillip wrote and publ [...]


  • Maureen E

    A sci-fi ish two book series by Patricia McKillip. Interesting but probably not my favorite books by her. [Dec. 2008]-----This is a single book containing Moon-Flash and The Moon and the Face. I thought I had only read the first one, but it turned out that I had read the second as well! It’s a fascinating concept, which I can say nothing about because I will ruin the whole thing! [June 2010]


  • Karl

    This book, comprising two slim novels, is a departure for Patricia McKillip: science fiction rather than high fantasy. I loved the book although the modernist cover threw me off a bit and at times the story was a little predictable. The joy of the book, however, came from walking a beautiful prose path with heartfelt characters.


  • Beth Matthews

    Another excellent story from Patricia McKillipWonderful story of how far your dreams can take you -- even if it brings you back home. I love reading her books. They always take me to another world.


  • Laura

    I read the first book in this duology back when it was new and remember enjoying it. I just re-read and found it as good as I remembered. Good main characters, a coming-of-age, a journey (or two or three), and twists and turns.


  • Amanda

    Two novels in one. The first, Moon Flash, is great. What if there was a world that was a living museum? A novel idea and well executed.The second story, The Moon Has a Face didn't measure up, but was readable.


  • Wynne

    Read my review here.


  • Amy

    This is my kind of science fiction. Loved it.


  • Tara

    Another book that I probably would have given 4 stars to the first time I read it, but then when I re-read it some yrs later, with its sequel, I enjoyed it more.


  • Melissa

    Ok I know these books look so weird, but I love the Author so I gave them a chance and ended up really liking them! This is the sequel to The moon and the face. They are very Scifi. For older teens.
