The Moonday Letters

We rated this book:


Stories being told through letters, emails, journal entries, and other forms of communication are increasingly in prevalence in science fiction literature, and this book is the latest entry into that category, albeit with an uneven storyline that really does not feel satisfying most of the time.

Lumi sets off to find Sol, their husband, who has disappeared and who leaves a set of cryptic clues through data messages and emails for Lumi to follow through the many inhabited colonies of the solar system after most of humanity has abandoned Earth due to the poor living conditions.

Lumi travels through a series of different ecoterrorist groups as they search for Sol and to continue their lives together. But the deeper Lumi enters into the underworld of the solar system and the many groups Sol is leading her through, the more they find themselves confronting the reality that humanity is still flawed even off of Earth.

For people who might not yet be used to the use of gender neutral pronouns in literature, this book might be a bit confusing at times with the use of “their” and other forms of neutral pronouns. Also, despite the constant messages and moving through the stars, not much actually happens.
