Review: 172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad

172 Hours on the Moon - Johan Harstad


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 opinion:

OMG! This book was so amazing! I can't believe I haven't read this earlier, but it was a perfect book for a read-a-thon. I was so fast paced and terrifying. I love the universe and those stuff and I always was like: it would be so cool to go in space! but now I'm like: nope, nevermind xD. This sci-fi books has become my favorite sci-fi book ever and also one of my favorite books of this year! The plot was cool, the ending was shocking and I read it very quickly! Just go read if you haven't already! (I know my opinion is short this time, but there is nothing more to say than: ''just read it!'' I didn't know this book was translated Swedish, that's how good this book was! And the pictures were so creepy and cool as well.
