    Couldn't get into this one

    Thanks to the author for this book to review. Dillon is hit by a car and transported to a hospital on the moon. He encounters strange beings and realizes that some of them could be considered intelligent. He and his fantasy-game playing friends must go to another planet to retrieve a stolen object and help save the world from an impending war between alien species. There are lots of scientific activities and terms along with martial arts descriptions; the author is well-versed in both according to his biography so he is knowledgeable of what he writes about (regarding those two topics).

    This was a difficult book for me to read, partly because the concept seemed weird and partly for structural reasons. The writing seemed jagged, the flow inconsistent at best, and I was particularly annoyed at the asterisks throughout the book. They are meant to alert the reader to go to the online glossary and find the meaning of new words. Really? I'm reading a book and now I'm supposed to stop, wait for my computer to start up, and then search for a word? If there is a need for a glossary, put it in the back of the book! I think the book will be a hard sell to my middle school students but I'm willing to give it a try.
