Alabama Moon (film)

alabama moon

With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it - in her own words and on her own terms. In this bold and provocative audiobook, Yuval Noah Harari explores who we are, how we got here, and where we're going. I heard of this book through my book club and at first, I wasn't very eager to read it as it wouldn't be a book I would pick up on a library shelf. ~ Fabulous, simple dialogue creates his characer as well as others. Moon is the best narrator.

The Constable was chasing after him and trying to get him. I would recommend this book to my brother. I read the synopsis of this book months ago and even had it recommended to me by a friend, but I didn't pick it up because while it sounded interesting, the plot didn't leap out at me. It's sort of a mean girls scenario but set in a boys home. Since Moon writes letters to his Pap, the student can write to him as Moon and talk about how they are feeling after an event happens. This is because he had adapted to the lifestyle of being isolated.

Alabama Moon Summary and Analysis (like SparkNotes)

alabama moon

On occasion him and his father would go to town. How people succeed and how you can, too. And survival so this would be a good book for him. Moon Blake is raised by his loving but government-paranoid father Oliver in a hidden cave in the Alabama forests. It begins with some very intense, dramatic scenes in which an 11-year-old loses his father and becomes an orphan, and then the tone settles on a rather lightweight, and even comical adventure story that stays somewhat inert; while there is much talk of going to Alaska, most of the images consist of the boys hanging around in one spot. Dirt Road Home ends in a happy note that doesn't leave me asking for more. When Pap dies of an infected broken leg, a mean constable nabs Moon and throws him in a penitentiary for boys.

A book for Gary Paulsen's Hatchet fans! Although parts of Moon's story may seem over-the-top, its fast pacing, adventurous storyline and true-to-life details about the natural world combine to produce a strikingly new kind of adventure novel. I didn't think it was well written. The story of a young boy and his countless enemies and loyal friends along with his immense knowledge of the wilderness will keep you on the edge of your seat. Suddenly, Moon's ideal life comes to an end when his father has an accident and dies of an infection. I would read it again if i had to, but not for enjoyment.

But, it is a good book for a middle reader, and it faces good and challenging topics. When I read the summary, I thought the story was going to take place a long time ago, but the setting is Alabama in 1980. He then turns himself in to the police. His pap taught him everything he knows about survival in the wild, which is good, because when he breaks his leg and dies from the infection he leaves Moon all on his own. Pap said he even figured I could whip somebody three times my size. Otherwise, the movie features knives and guns no shots fired , plus threats and shouting, and some manhandling. He would act like how a kid with ni clue about the real world would act, so there was nothing corky about him.

Hal arrives at Hellenweiler and swiftly comes to realize that he has entered Hell. And then Miranda finds a mysterious note. I liked how his personality was, and his courage of wanting to escape even though he was gravely ill. You could almost take this out into the woods and use it as a primer for surviving there yourself. I could have enjoyed it more if i was a 3 rd grader.
