    “Moon Beaver” begins with Benny Henderson an inhabitant of the increasingly drab Norwich who finds himself struggling to retain his sense of originality in a city that has been permeated by Company rhetoric; it is being blanketed by propaganda that forces the relinuishment of an individual identity in order to create manageable conformity As the city slowly grows greyer and falls deeper into an abyss of Company compliance a young woman of unspecified age and origin who calls herself Moon Beaver unexpectedly enters Benny’s flat while he is in the middle of a bubble bath and entrances him with her “cult of one” From thence on he unuestioningly allows the strange woman to invade his life deplete his savings and guide him away from his fiancée Louise as they venture overseas Enthralled by her spontaneous lifestyle and her belief in her own immortality Benny attempts to learn from her the mysteries of time which she purports to manipulate It is clear to Benny that he will eventually be abandoned by Moon and thus feels as if every day with her could be the lastThe occult of Moon Beaver pervades and complicates the lives of every character Louise attempts to come to terms with Moon’s sense of freedom and ultimately her own as she delves into Moon’s indeterminate past; Lou a Midwestern hen farmer from the States tries to reconcile his love for his hens with his love for Moon; and Benny attempting to understand Moon’s philosophy concentrates on negotiating issues of time and sustainability outside of the Company normAndrew Hook’s “Moon Beaver” is a novel of life death and the transitory time spent in between Moon’s character and sense of self is eerily inspiring and makes for a read that is both absorbing and beguiling The issues raised by Hook are poignant to everyday life and the conseuences of living in every kind of way are potentially haunting how do we immortalize our finite selves and how do we do so without sacrificing the people we love?

    A really fun and interesting story whose only issue is a number of loose ends left unaddressed Normally I don't mind loose ends but a major loose end was partially explained in a way that I expected which was rather unsatisfying Even with this though an excellent story

    Moon Beaver is a fantastic character For most of the book the plot and characters and the author's style seems kind of scattered though The author has some nice humor at parts but I feel like he has misses than hits I do like that sometimes he talks to the readers I wish his style was focused though There is just too much random weirdness for my taste What makes this book though is the last 30 pages or so Everything comes together and you realize that Moon Beaver is not as important at least not in the way I thought originally The other characters come into focus and I felt satisfied in the end despite the bizarreness in getting there

    Moon Beaver the character is a manic pixie dream girl I don't completely hate that trope but I wasn't a huge fan of this particular MPDG which made it difficult to enjoy Moon Beaver the book
