One reason I love pretty much any book by Stuart Gibbs is that he throws in interesting facts, and he’s done all kinds of research, just so he can drop a line or two in the middle of an otherwise action-packed and kind of silly story, and suddenly you’ve learned something about rocket science. Look through his website (www.stuartgibbs.com) and you’ll see what I mean In a world of fake news, this is – for book-loving nerds – like strawberry pie on a summer day. I don’t really know where I was going with that. I might just have been thinking about strawberry pie.
In any case, right in there with the mystery about who poisoned an entitled rick jerk named Lars is some cool space travel information about what life on the moon might really be like, as well as an explanation of how someone might make cyanide on the moon. You never know what you’ll come across.
It’s the last of the Moon Base Alpha series, but I know he’ll be on to something else awesome, so it’s ok. It’s really ok. Really.
