Publisher's Summary

What lies on the dark side of the moon could change the course of humanity forever.
When a Chinese rover discovers an alien technology on the dark side of the moon, it is up to Richard "Rock" Crandon and his NASA team of scientists and engineers to devise a way to return before the Chinese and Russians.
Forced to deal with bureaucratic oversight and a complex team of personalities, Rock Crandon pushes his team to their limits.
With pressure mounting, the world is pushed closer to conflict and war as the NASA team finds itself seriously behind in the newly initiated space race. The future of mankind, its ideological and technological advances are at stake, as the world's super powers race to discover what lies on the dark side of the moon.
Who will get there first, and at what cost?

Good science and plot, but characters are 2D

If you could sum up Lunar Discovery in three words, what would they be?

Enjoyable realistic Sci-fi


What was one of the most memorable moments of Lunar Discovery?

Just before the Rabbit (If I explain further then it's a spoiler.)


What about Mark Boyett’s performance did you like?

Good consistent delivery although I am not sure why he ascribes a British accent to one of the NASA ground staff when there is no mention of his origins in the book.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. I like a book I can enjoy, especially while driving.


Any additional comments?

It's clear that the book could have developed the characters better, but that might have taken away from the tempo of the narrative. There is good science here but nicknaming the main character 'Rock' was not a good way to elevate him in any way and the Chinese characters were badly neglected in the second half. For future books it would be good to revisit some of these to maintain the human aspect of the story to match the science moving forward.
