    PDF posthd.pro ¶ Moondogs PDF Ê moondogs epub, Moondogs MOBIThis book was bizarre and felt all over the place There were three different storylines going on two of which barely connected to the main one but connected to each other for how much room they were given in the book I think Moniue was an unnecessary character The story didn't gain anything from her chapters and perspective I would have been okay with the other two storylines intertwining and admittedly after a certain point I skimmed her chapters only looking for anything important The bit of magic in the book was interesting I enjoyed those characters If this had been two separate books one with Benicio and Howard the other with Reynato Efrem and the 'family' each given attention I thi

    PDF posthd.pro ¶ Moondogs PDF Ê moondogs epub, Moondogs MOBIMoondogs is a terrific novel It's the kind of book that brings desperate elements together in an unusual location for me in a surprisingly off kilter way There's a grieving son an estranged Father soldiers with wizard y superpowers a local celebrity hero cop who has inspired a series of over the top action movies adulterous embassy employees a meth addicted cab driver a smoking rooster a prostitute and a actor with political ambitions All these characters come together in the Philippines when the estranged Father is kidnapped by wannabe terrorists before he can reunite with the grieving son Too many years of retail and visits from sales reps have me aching to tell you that Moondogs is blank meets blank Not because this novel is a mish mash of the creativity of others but because it is so original that referencing Moondogs to even the smallest similarities in other works would give you a better idea of what to expect when you read it than my tiny mind can produce This is a twenty firs

    PDF posthd.pro ¶ Moondogs PDF Ê moondogs epub, Moondogs MOBIRecently some of my friends and I amused ourselves with the uestion On the scale of 1 to 10 how weird would you say you are? Moondogs is s novel that starts out reading like a normal story Maybe I'd give it at most a 2 on the weirdness scale one for being set in the exotic locale of the Philippines and another one for having a rooster introduced on page one as a character and a villain But Benicio who travels to the Philippines to re connect with his estranged father and his girlfriend Alice seem like normal people Moniue an American diplomat in the Philippines and her trailing family seem like normal people Dysfunctional but normal Then on page 49 Effrem Khalid Bakkar raises his rifle and shoots dead a man 30 miles away
