Overview

Two thousand years in the future, the Moon has become a run down experiment in terra-forming and colonization with a dusty patina and a bright red sky. To sixteen-year-old Hieronymus Rexaphin, however, it is the only place he has ever known until he meets a girl from Earth called Windows Falling on Sparrows. Windows Falling on Sparrows is inexplicatly drawn to him because of his special, some say dangerous, condition. Hieronymus is a One Hundred Percent Lunar Boy who can see the fourth primary color, giving him the ability to see the future path of time and matter. To look into his eyes will cause madness or even death, authorities say, so he is forced to wear goggles. The color of his eyes is against Lunar law, and some say against nature. After breaking the Moon's most serious law and exposing his eyes to a curious young Earth girl, Hieronymus embarks on a misadventure to protect his friends and save his family, and to escape exile and imprisionment on the far side of the moon.

    An excellent start to a planned trilogy.

    I'm generally not a fan of "steampunk fiction", which this book has a dose off. However, when I read the concept of the book I was intrigued so I picked it up. It was, for me, a fantastic novel. Stephen Tunney has a good ability to tell a story and doesn't bog it down with unnecessary extras that detract from where he wants the story to go. Each chapter lends itself to Tunneys vision of what the story is about and where it's going. I won't get into specifics of what the story is about. You can get that off the jacket. What I will say is that the characters are engaging. 2000 years into the future and they still suffer from the same teen angst that people experience today. As this is a planned trilogy there is something of a cliffhanger at the end. If I had to express any problem with the book it would be that the first few chapters jump around a little in time from the present to the past without clearly announcing it. Once you catch on to it though it is very easy to grasp and navigate. All in all I was completely impressed with Tunney and his story. I eagerly await the follow-ups.

    An Excellent Find

    I thoroughly enjoyed One Hundred Percent Lunar Boy; I was immediately intrigued by the premise of the novel and I read it within only a few days. I would reccomend this novel to anyone who enjoys science fiction and I eagerly await other works by Stephen Tunney.

    A nice change of pace!

    A quick read at 300 pages, Mr. Tunney's book is inventive fun with quirky characters and a sense of humor that was a nice change from the glut of murder mysteries, evil government and Dan Brown wannabes. I am looking forward to the next novel in this trilogy.

    Incredible Story

    It was an amazing novel. After finishing it all I wanted to do was pick it up again. I want so badly to read the rest of the trilogy. The cliffhanger ending sent tingles down my spine. The characters really hooked into my mind and the plot only escalated from the climax. Tunney is a great writer. This book would also be a great movie, but you can get so much more immersed in the book.

    not well-written. JUST PLAIN BAD

    I could have written this book and I'm not a writer. Badly written. Don't waste your time or money. The people giving this 4 stars must be fake. Does not deserve 1 star.

    Maybe for young adults, not me.

    If you know ANYTHING about the properties of light, color theory, or how an eye functions, you will have trouble enjoying this book. It probably could benefit with a second pass by an editor. Example: The author could not think of a synonym for 'dog.' One character uses the same phrase, in as much, as the narrator's voice. The major concept of a unique color is explained ad nauseam. The conclusions to the plots are not credible, and seemed artificially appended.
    I did enjoy the description of the lunar environment, and this was inspirational. The parts of the city, a shop, library, living areas. I see it. I'd like to visit.
    Alas, I bought the digital version of this book. Maybe the paper version is better.
    And, if you think I'm being harsh, I'm 80% sure I'll be looking to check-out the second book in this trilogy.
