Publisher's Summary

Douglas Hastings' passion for anything NASA drove him to analyze a treasure trove of Moon photos taken during all Apollo missions. Doug had started to believe the conspiracy theories and rumors that had swirled for years; that NASA had discovered more than just rocks on the Moon and had conspired to keep the rest of the world in the dark.
A super computer's enhancement and compilation of the old photos proved his belief and sent him on a quest that has now revealed revolutionary new space travel technology and will enable him to lead a group on a return journey to explore ancient ruins on the lunar surface. But Doug's pursuit of the truth and discovery of a destroyed GLASS city on the Moon pale in comparison to what lies underneath the lunar surface. What he finds will solve the mystery of a long-dead Apollo Astronaut and provide clues to the missing elements of Earth's ancient history. But, even he isn't prepared for the discovery that will reveal the past and change the future of mankind; FOREVER!

Boy, am I glad to see you guys.

'Delightful' is the best way to sum up this peek into the past style of science fiction writing. It all begins with a mystery - an anomaly picked up by one Douglas Charles Hastings when entering data from photographs taken of the moon during Apollo missions. He becomes convinced that something - an ancient glass domed city? - is there and, together with a group recruited to help, determines to visit the moon to investigate. With much scientific explanations, and a lot of suspension of disbelief, the reader goes on an adventure to explore with this 'jolly' of mostly elderly NASA old timers. Slow paced and very visually written, Underneath the Moon has the feel of H.G.Wells' (early 1900s) book, The First Men in the Moon - or even the animated man and dog visit of Wallace and Grommit. Yes, quite delightful.

Superbly narrated by J.Scott Bennett, his reading is paced to fit the subject, with excellent expression and intonation. His voicings of the many characters are also distinctive, individual and appropriate, all adding to the simple delight of this slowly evolving mystery thriller. Another excellent performance by this talented voice actor.

If looking for a fast, action packed thriller, this is not for you. But for the listener wanting something quirky, more like the classic S.F. space explorations from before the time when we could finally see the dark side of the moon, give it a try. The narration is excellent, the ideas intriguing - and I, for one, will be looking out for a possible following story.

A good solid sci fi

Where does Underneath the Moon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Towards the top. I liked the descriptions of the science of space travel and the premise of the story is good.


What other book might you compare Underneath the Moon to, and why?

I don't think I can offer an easy comparison. It's quite a fresh story. Science around our NASA science and science as in science fiction mixed with elements of action.


What does J. Scott Bennett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

J. Scott Bennett did a really good job with this book. There’s tons of male characters and he kept them all distinct using various regional and international accents. The ladies all sounded good as well. Great job!


If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

You might ask what's on the moon but let's scratch the surface and see what's in it.
