    ePUB Moondogs Epub ï ¾ antesmassage.co moondogs epub, Moondogs MOBIAccording to the author moondogs are the halo like coronae that appear around the moon on particularly clear night skies What this has to do with the singularly weird but entertaining novel Moondogs by Alexander Yates is still rather unclear to me but it doesn't detract from my enjoyment of the story much of which like the title kind of went over my head anyway First off it's about The Phillipines I've never been to the Phillipines and after reading this book I doubt it will ever make it on my top ten places to visit list It is apparently a place replete with a rich history some of which reflects poorly on the United States The story begins with the kidnapping of an American businessman named Howard who is the epitome of the Ugly American fat rich disrespectful and careless On the same day he is kidnapped his estranged son Benicio

    ePUB Moondogs Epub ï ¾ antesmassage.co moondogs epub, Moondogs MOBIThis book was bizarre and felt all over the place There were three different storylines going on two of which barely connected to the main one but connected to each other for how much room they were given in the book I think Moniue was an unnecessary character The story didn't gain an

There is something for just about everybody in this book Mystery politics mysticism romance family saga satire you name itThis book is completely different from anything I have ever read before and I could not wait to get back to it In fact my 10 year old found me on the couch late one night barely able to keep my eye lids open and told me I really needed to go to bed but I just wanted The main story follows a son Benicio and is father Howard Bridgewater who have had a falling out as a result of Howard's unfaithfulness to Benicio's mother After B

    ePUB Moondogs Epub ï ¾ antesmassage.co moondogs epub, Moondogs MOBIMoondogs is a terrific novel It's the kind of book that brings desperate elements together in an unusual location for me in a surprisingly off kilter way There's a grieving son an estranged Father soldiers with wizard y superpowers a local celebrity hero cop who has inspired a series of over the top action movies adulterous embassy employees a meth addicted cab driver a smoking rooster a prostitute and a actor with political ambitions All these characters come together in the Philippines when the estranged Father is kidnapped by wannabe terrorists before he can reunite with the grieving son Too many years of retail and visits from sales reps have me aching to tell you that Moondogs is blank meets blank Not because this nove

    ePUB Moondogs Epub ï ¾ antesmassage.co moondogs epub, Moondogs MOBIA brilliant read from a uniue voice Moondogs is a roller coaster of human failings magical realism crime and punishment and family playing out against the backdrop of an election in the Philippines It's like Eat Pray Love taking place in the most unfortunate timeline I think I never read Eat Pray Love This cinematic tale is filled with a host of characters that purposefully leave something to be desired but keep you invested anyway Perfect read for your next flight to a country you never plan to return to

    ePUB Moondogs Epub ï ¾ antesmassage.co moondogs epub, Moondogs MOBIRecently some of my friends and I amused ourselves with the uestion On the scale of 1 to 10 how weird would you say you are? Moondogs is s novel that starts out reading like a normal story Maybe I'd give it at most a 2 on the weirdness scale one for being set in the exotic locale of the Philippines and another one for having a rooster introduced on page one as a character and a villain But Benicio who travels to the Philippines to re connect with his estranged father and his girlfriend Alice seem like normal people Moniue an American diplomat in the Philippines and her trailing family seem like normal people Dysfunctional but normal Then on page 49 Effrem Khalid Bakkar raises his rifle and shoots dead a man 30 miles away The needle on the weirdness meter just shot up to a good 8 or 9 Turns out this is a book about superheroes Except they aren't heroes Superheroes only use their powers for good These bruhos one who can
