A great year for the Chinese Sep 16, 2008
In a year of the Chinese Olympics, one couldn't ask for a better thriller than Rabbit on the Moon by Deboral and Joel Shlianj to focus on the generational differences in China. What a great read! Anyone looking for a mixture of mystery, science and Asian culture can't go wrong by picking up this "unputdownable" novel. From the first pages, one is drawn into the conflict faced by Dr. Lili Quan to either turn her back on her Chinese origins or be drawn back into a world she knows little about in order to fulfill a promise made to her mother. No one could predict how terrifying this experience will turn out to be.
With China very much in our memories because of the Olympics, this novel could not have come out at a better time. I loved every page turning twist and found Lili's predicament one with universal implications.
Exciting, engrossing thriller Sep 6, 2008
Great read!! This is my first book review but I felt compelled to write it because I really enjoyed this book and hope others will also. This book offers much more depth than many of its genre.
Earlier reviewers have already described the story so I will just reiterate that the authors have done a terrific job of creating interesting characters and developing a fascinating and intelligent story woven through history, international intrigue, medicine and politics. I am looking forward to reading other books by these authors."
A Thriller With a Cinematic Feel Jul 25, 2008
I found "Rabbit in the Moon" to be one of those few books that you can't put down. The book has a complex but cohesive structure that takes on a cinematic quality as the story line shifts across continents. The authors have carefully researched and successfully integrated Chinese historic events and culture, the less than wholesome aspects of the pharmaceutical industy, and the politics of academic mediciine to craft a fully enjoyable tale of international intrigue.
Real Page turner Jul 9, 2008
The twists and turns within the pages of Rabbit in the Moon kept me turning the pages to find out what happened next...The circle of life that begins to encompass Dr. Quan on her journey at her mothers request brings her full circle to her ancestry and without knowing has put her in harms way. The intermingling of characters and their selfish motives seeking to extend their life for their own gain permeates the pages..How the Shlians weave the trials of the Chinese people, their history and culture with their personal knowledge makes this a avery enjoyable read..I finished reading it and immediately started reading it again..A must read from my perspective...Congratulations to the Shlians.
