Review: 172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad

172 Hours on the Moon

172 Hours on the Moon


It's been decades since anyone set foot on the moon. Now three ordinary teenagers, the winners of NASA's unprecedented, worldwide lottery, are about to become the first young people in space--and change their lives forever. Mia, from Norway, hopes this will be her punk band's ticket to fame and fortune. Midori believes it's her way out of her restrained life in Japan. Antoine, from France, just wants to get as far away from his ex-girlfriend as possible.
It's the opportunity of a lifetime, but little do the teenagers know that something sinister is waiting for them on the desolate surface of the moon. And in the black vacuum of space... no one is coming to save them.
In this chilling adventure set in the most brutal landscape known to man, highly acclaimed Norwegian novelist Johan Harstad creates a vivid and frightening world of possibilities we can only hope never come true.

My Review:

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
NASA's returning to the moon. This time around it's a little different, Along with the astronauts there'll be three civilians making the trip. Three teenagers to be exact. Chosen randomly through a worldwide held contest.
The lucky winners are two girls and a boy. Mia from Norway, Midori from Japan, and Antoine from France. The three teens have different reasons for wanting to go on this mission to the moon, but will they all regret their decision to go. Once they get to the moon things start going wrong almost immediately. Their very survival is at risk. One thing is for sure. They are not alone.
I really, really loved this book! It totally blew my mind. I loved the writing. I loved the characters. It was as scary as hell. Brilliant!
