Poul Anderson recently the winner of the Nebula's Grandmaster Award for lifetime achievement returns to the world of his acclaimed novel Operation Chaos with the tale of one family's mission to the moon Ginny Greylock and Steven Matuchek are partners an Earth uite unlike our own For starters Ginny. Disappointing seuelI m a great fan of the late Poul Anderson and his writing Operation Chaos was really enjoyable as was A Midsummer Tempest the third book where Valeria Matuchek makes a brief but crucial appearance This makes the disappointment of Operation Luna that much greater Simply put it is a boring impenetrable and actually badly written book All I can think of is that the author was pressured to write a seuel and that his heart really wasn t in it Pity

O make contact But when the time comes to test the spacecraft a host of bugs snafus and angry spirits conspire to prevent the launch It's a recipe for perfect lunacy as Ginny and her clan struggle to figure out who or what is sabotaging the greatest magical and scientific achievement of the century. The immensely disappointing and over long seuel to Operation Chaos is just a full on libertarian rant about the evils of government and the goddamn IRS with long and utterly awful attempts at humour involving a fantasy dwarf and a talking sword It took me almost two years to struggle my way through the novel since I just got fed up every few chapters and went for something actually readable insteadIt has alternative world magic instead of technology adventures with the werewolf and witch I guess but since I found them increasingly tedious in the previous book that s not much of a draw to me Honestly I d rate this a zero star is that even possible waste of time

    This seuel was very disappointing for me Project Chaos became one of my favorite fantasy novels on first reading but Project Luna falls far short of its predecessor The book is too long for its plot dragging badly in the middle A 400 page book is perfectly fine provided that it is engaging A huge problem is also the lac

    One of the most boring frustrating books I've read The guy doesn't do anything He just stands next to the characters who do going on about how great they are and how important it is The plot was extremely silly not in a good way and the 'good' characters are pompous and smug I was so sick of them all by the end It's a sham

    It wasn't great but I kept reading By the time I was really bored I found I have read over 200 pages so I carried on to see if it would finish as predictably as I thought I had to read another 100 pages and it did
