    This was a very fun take on the hardboiled detective novel from the viewpoint of a thirteen year old Irish boy who takes a correspondence course and gets his detective license It s very tongue and cheek, but that s a huge part of the fun of it Colfer takes the story very seriously, in that it s serious enough for Fletcher Moon He s really in everyway a bonafide detective However, people don t seem to believe he s what he says he is Fletcher s heart and soul is in detective work, but everything is rather theoretical until he gets a case that involves him up to his ears Kids make me laugh and I love reading middle grade stories because they re never boring While it s been a long time since I was thirteen, I can identify with the angst of that age, and the aspects that are pretty darn funny The cast of characters are awesome Fletcher is very likable, and to my surprise, Red became one of my favorite characters He has some built in pathos in his situation as a Starkey, a family known for its criminal nature Just because he s in the family, he s going to be seen as a criminal, even if he s honest But it turns out the same person who frames Fletcher framed him, and together they expose a conspiracy that impacts their whole school.I have tons of respect for Colfer as a writer He writes books that a child and an adult can enjoy His humor is accessible enough to entertain young readers, but sly and wry enough to appeal to an adult who likes that bit of sarcasm.This was a great book to listen to The narrator is probably Irish, so he had the accents down pat, and each character has a different feel to their vocalization I would recommend this book for a fun and relatively short audiobook read I think a family would enjoy listening to this together.

    Great book for kids Your hero is a witty misfit who is allowed to make mistakes.

    My name is Moon Fletcher Moon And I m a private detective In my twelve years on this spinning ball we call Earth, I ve seen a lot of things normal people never see I ve seen lunch boxes stripped of everything except fruit I ve seen counterfeit homework networks that operated in five counties, and I ve seen truckloads of candy taken from babies.I thought I d seen it all I had paid so many visits to the gutter looking for lost valentines, that I thought nothing could shock me After all, when you ve come face to face with the dark side of the school yard, life doesn t hold many surprises.Or so I believed I was wrong Very wrong.The story of a twelve year old, hard boiled noir private investigator told with excellent humor, a real mystery, and nice use of language Petty theft and playground violence There are several kinds of school fights The three most popular kinds are the Pinwheel, the Hold Me Back, and the Headlock. , but an excellent place to steer series mystery readers looking for something else.I especially enjoyed his Femme Fatale This was April Devereux, ten years old and already the head of an entire tribe of Barbies.Just found out BBC turned it into a TV series I wish he would write some sequels, because I d read them I thought that my cleverness would make me popular I was wrong No one wants a friend who can find out their secrets Somehow I realized even at three years old that if I wanted friends, I would have to stop finding things out I didn t stop, and Mary Ann has hated me now for almost a decade If she wants to do anything about it after all this time, she ll just have to join the club.

    I knew when smoky jazz filled the car that I was in for trouble, and I was right I had to leave ten minutes early for everything because I just had to finish the chapter The combination of Eoin Colfer s dime store humor and Sean Patrick Reilly s melodramatic brogue makes me believe I have entered the world of a P.I The characters are just wonderful, falling into mystery novel stereotypes while still managing to surprise you at every turn The plot is engaging, the dialogue is entertaining, and the adventure is non stop This book has all the elements of a great read and an even better listen.

    This book was so much fun to listen to I laughed out loud within the first chapter and there was plenty laughter later on as well Fletcher Moon is a twelve year old Sherlock Holmes He has gone through an online detective training course and now has his badge He spends his time solving mysteries for his classmates and older sister Until he gets dragged into the middle of a much bigger mystery and ends up in some unexpected places The story is fun from beginning to end and the friendship that develops between Fletcher and one of the other characters not mentioning the name so I can avoid spoilers is really nice Fletcher learns that it s not easy walking in someone else s shoes Sean Patrick Reilly narrated the audio book and I really enjoyed his performance His voices for the characters were very well done and helped bring them all to life in my head.

    I thought I was a heck of a lot smarter than I really was in middle school.We had four channels to choose from in my house 2, 6, 8, and 10 and my mom was the official Lady of the Remote from 6 00 until 9 00 on Sundays After that she allowed my dad to turn it to something else while she went to bed and read herself to sleep But it was during those three hours, the time when my mother held domination over all things entertainment, when I became a die hard fan of Murder She Wrote And also when I found out I d be a terrible private investigator.Every episode I watched, I knew the killer I had the crime pinned on the thief in the first ten minutes There was no criminal smart enough to escape the sleuthy savviness that was Brooks Benjamin, kid detective But at the end of every episode I found myself fooled, embarrassed, and convinced that old lady had gotten it wrong But, you know I never stopped watching They fueled my love for mystery and it stayed with me until this day.Which is why I decided to review Half Moon Investigations by Eoin Colfer Many of you will recognize the name from the Artemis Fowl series, but those who are sitting there, scratching their heads, trying to figure out how to pronounce his name, just pretend it says Owen or oh, win or something like that.Half Moon Investigations follows twelve year old Fletcher Moon, the only kid in Lock sharp enough to earn an online degree in gumshoeing He s solved cases than he can think of, but it s the most recent one that s giving his P.I skills a metaphorical wedgie.Fletcher gets hired by April to find a lock of hair that turns up missing A few interrogations later and our MC s got his sights on Lock s most infamous thirteen year old criminal, Red Sharkey Before Fletcher gets a chance to slap the cuffs on ol Red, both boys get hurled into the world of arson, assault, and computer hackery with multiple crimes pointing to them as the main suspects With the real criminal out there setting them up to take the fall, they have 24 hours to team up, connect the crimes, and discover the true culprit before they re hauled off by the police for good.Half Moon Investigations has such a great MG voice and Colfer plugs in a few brilliant moments of pulp to give it that fun, over the top hero saving the day feel to it There were a couple of times I read a phrase and discovered later that it was an Irish quip of some sort It was never enough to detract from the story and any good MG reader who had a good language arts teacher could apply that invaluable context clues lesson there and figure it out.What they probably won t figure out, though, is the answer to this question Who was behind all the crimes Or at least I didn t.Even after reading the ending again, I still couldn t find all those clues that would ve led me to that particular person Which means, for me anyway, it sort of came out of left field Could it be enough to make you throw the book across the room, screaming, THIS IS HORSERADISH HOW WERE WE SUPPOSED TO KNOW THAT, MR OH WIN Nah Or at least I hope not.I mean, it s not like in some episodes of Mrs Marple where we find it was the gardener the entire time but we couldn t have guessed it because we heard the gardener say three words during the entire show and no one ever suspected the gardener because he was in the garden gardening But it s certainly not Columbo obvious, either.I m calling this one a happy medium The reveal was brilliant and the book ends with a hint of a possible sequel And I hope Colfer decides to continue this series because it s got humor, action, adventure every ingredient needed for a good MG mystery While I was writing this review, I even discovered the BBC produced a TV series based on the book which I ll be searching for as soon as I m done here.So if you love a good whodunit, try Half Moon Investigations, even if you re not a crime solver at heart Because if you re like me and have already decided that the detective world would be better left to those worthyI completely understand And I won t even tattle on you when you tell everyone you figured it out.Happy reading

    Original BookTube review HEREThis is perhaps one of Colfer s underrated novels, but it s a personal favorite of mine.I originally picked up this book because I was on a mission to read each and every one of Colfer s novels At this point you re probably remembering that yesterday I did warn you he is my favorite author.Half Moon Investigations is vastly different from the Artemis Fowl series and The Supernaturalist in genre and style, and I think that is the main reason it doesn t get the credit it deserves People weren t expecting it But I love it when I see authors broadening their style.This book is not about magic, or fairies, or even science This is the story of Fletcher Moon, a half pint Sam Spade wannabe trying to survive middle school and put his detective s badge to good use if only somebody would give him an actual case to solve This is Hardy Boys than Boxcar Children, and it is filled with Colfer s trademark wit and shameless puns What makes this story so unique what I really, really love about it is that Colfer still manages to dance his way through the story with engaging and clever prose even in the first person point of view of a twelve year old boy who sees himself as an old time P.I and the narration sounds entirely natural.It s very important to note that the mystery and investigation, while immensely entertaining, aren t childish, and its being solved by two kids is handled believably The mystery is also convoluted, so you ll keep those pages turning until the very end But the best part about this book, I think, is the human element Aside from the mystery and the hilarity, there is a serious side that deals with loss, broken families, and the consequences of your actions Don t worry, though, this isn t a book to get you down.There is nothing I don t like about this book, but as for my favorite part well, that s nearly impossible to decide There s just so much to love about this I must admit, The Unicorn Room gets me every time.Half Moon Investigations by Eoin Colfer gets 5 extra large shiny stars, because this is one of the most magnificent non fantasy middle grade books I have ever read.

    I just can t dislike books by Eoin Colfer I really can t Although Half Moon Investigations wasn t my favorite book ever by him, I still enjoyed it a lot I actually enjoyed it a whole lot than I originally thought I would because this book is in the mystery genre.Once again Mr Colfer managed to create very interesting characters The main character, Fletcher Moon, of course being the most fascinating But I also liked Red Sharkey a lot And I also have to say that Colfer has a knack for creating batshit crazy female characters Just saying that April girl There was seriously something wrong with her She could give Opal Koboi from Artemis Fowl a run for her money But back to the story now It was a good story and a great mystery I found myself wanting to solve it along with Fletcher or as Red calls him, Half Moon And in the end I must admit that I hadn t been able to guess who was really behind it all so that s bonus points for this book and author Another thing, I feel I must say is that the story read really quickly I flew through it in no time and it always had my attention Colfer has a unique way of writing a story and keeping its audience hooked At least, that s always the case with me.So if you re looking for an awesome mystery book, look no further you have got to read Half Moon Investigations Colfer introduces us to unique characters, unexpected twists and the brilliance of his writing once again I loved it

    Oh I loved this book I listened to it on my ipod, read by a dude with an Irish accent It takes place in Ireland I sincerely giggled in several parts Fletcher Moon takes an online course to become a detective Since he is only 12, he had to borrow his dad s ID to actually receive his official private detective license He solves crimes in the playground, mostly for chocolate But he finally gets a real case for 10 Euros As he gets caught up in the case, he is helped by an unlikely guy one of the notorious school bad guys, Red Sharkey Imagine being forced to hide out in the home of the worst kid in school and actually meeting his notorious family and actually learning to like them Half Moon becomes a suspect of the crime himself and when he finally orchestrates a daring escape from his captors and uses some amazing mental deductions to solve the case, you learn that it is really two cases in one The action never stops, but what makes this a keeper are the great characters, from a small boy with a perpetual runny nose to a mom who wants to dress Fletcher is colorful clothes The surprise ending really hits the spot Susan Huff, Library Media Specialist
