Though this book was in French, Im reviewing in English as this site is so. Apologies aux lecteurs francophones.Why do these books, ostensibly about an alien coming to Earth to learn about terrans, always end up with him talking more about his homeland than anything else?I guess thats just the gendre.But well. Its entertaining enough, a jolly tale about a moon-man who comes to Paris to check it out. The last time he was here was in Greece in Socrates time (Moonpeople have good medicine, rather, they keep fit).But I found him pompous, and definitely not likeable.
Maybe its just that it seems cliché now but at the time of writing it was novel, but lunar society is painted as the perfection that is earth without its faults. Maybe also because it was regaled by a sole lunar patriot.I dont recommend this e-edition however, its poorly formatted with paragraphs here and there, and notably, accents are missing which makes French just barely readable.
Also endnotes arent really useful in an e-book.
