Books & Bottles: Book Talk #1 {The Moon and the Other by John Kessel}

Hi there!

This book has been a slow read for our book club and especially for me. School has started back up and I’ve moved and started a new job….ugh summer is over! Though I haven’t been speeding through this book as fast as usual, I’m thankful for the slow pace.

When starting off the first few chapters were difficult to get through and a little hard to grasp. Kessel jumps right into the middle of this foreign world and it was hard to catch on at the beginning…I honestly started to question if this book was part of a series. 

Now that I’ve gotten to know some of the characters (and reread more than I would have liked to) the story is starting to flow a bit better and now I feel like I can really kick back and enjoy it.

I am really liking that this is more of an intellectual read and gives a realistic outlook on a future that could potentially happen. I feel like disscussion of this book could wield some good ideas and offer a different outlook on the way we treat others.

Current chapter: 6
