Overview

Fletcher Moon has never been like other kids. For one thing, he has had to suffer the humiliating nickname "Half Moon" because of his short stature. But the real reason Fletcher is different is that ever since he was a baby, he's had a nose for sniffing out mysteries. And after graduating at the top of his Internet class, he is officially certified as the youngest detective in the world. He even has a silver-plated detective's badge to prove it. Everything is going along fine until two things happen: a classmate hires him to solve a crime, and his prized badge is stolen. All signs point to the town's most notorious crime family, the Sharkeys.

As Fletcher follows the clues, evidence of a conspiracy begins to emerge. But before he can crack the case, Fletcher finds himself framed for a serious crime. To clear his name, he will have to pair up with the unlikeliest of allies and go on the run from the authorities. Fletcher has twelve hours to find the guilty party—or he is the guilty party.

I always love Mr. Colfer's work, but this book was surprising to me. When I first started reading it I figure it would be more "juvenile" than his other books, because of the characters and such. And in some ways it was, but in others it wasn't. I was surprised to find a cast of witty, very resourceful characters, and an interesting plot. I highly recommend.

At first I thought the storyline was confusing, but he tied it all together in the end. Good job, Mr. Colfer!

Fun to read book. Not deep, but lots of action. I bet, that boys enjoy it more than girls, because there are bad girls in the story.

I stayed up until 12:30 to read this, and then forced myself to go to bed. It gets you wanting to read more around the middle of the book, even though the beginning is not exactly super. I would reccomend this book for someone who likes to laugh, as Eoin Colfer brings a good mystery to funny situations.

This Book was so well put together that I had to keep reading, and I finished it in 1 day, and didn't regret it.

Half Moon investigations is a great book. Fletcher Moon is one of the funniest characters who ever narrated a story, and the growth of Red Sharkey from bad boy to good guy is progressed perfectly. The plot also moved along really well, with nonstop action. After Fletcher gets framed as an arsonist, his mad-scramble to solve the mystery is really quite exciting. Fletcher also meets some truly unexpected allies. All in all, a great book!

youngbookworm More than 1 year ago
Very cool book, i am a girl and i thought it was pretty good(a good addition to my book shelf) but i honestly think that boys would like this book the best. It is easy to follow, but still has a great twisting plot. I bought this book for myself and let my brother read it too, he liked it so much he wanted to keep it! Great book if you trying to buy for a boy between: 9 1/2 years old to 12 years old.

"Half Moon Investigations," by Eoin Colfer, the best-selling author of the "Artemis Fowl" series, is a mystery adventure containing edge-of-your-seat moments and lough-out-loud humor! Just when you think that the main character has solved the mystery, a new twist appears in the story, keeping the reader constantly thinking about the problem and what boy detective Fletcher Moon is going to do in order to solve it!
