Crater Trueblood and the Lunar Rescue Company: A Review


craterIt hadn’t occurred to me until I wrote the review that I finished this book in the 45 anniversary of the moon landing.

I was excited to have the chance to review Crater Trueblood and the Lunar Rescue Company simply because it was written by Homer Hickam, one of the “Rocket Boys.”

The book is an easy to read, delightful story. Short chapters keep the action going.

It seems that earth isn’t what it used to be and there’s a thriving civilization on the Moon. But human nature is the same as it’s always been so it’s hard to know who can be trusted. And that nature transfers over into created beings that work along side humans as their servants. Or, are they?

The Helium-3 novels of which this is the third, were written by Hickam to appeal to the 10-18 year old market, but they’re equally enjoyable by adults. I think I wish I’d had the opportunity to read Crater and Crescent before diving into this one.

If you’re looking for a series to entice your teenager to read, consider this series, but start with the first. They won’t want to put it down.
