172 Hours on the Moon Summary

172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad

Three teenagers are going on the trip of a lifetime. Only one is coming back.

It's been more than forty years since NASA sent the first men to the moon, and to grab some much-needed funding and attention, they decide to launch an historic international lottery in which three lucky teenagers can win a week-long trip to moon base DARLAH 2-a place that no one but top government officials even knew existed until now. The three winners, Antoine, Midori, and Mia, come from all over the world.

But just before the scheduled launch, the teenagers each experience strange, inexplicable events. Little do they know that there was a reason NASA never sent anyone back there until now-a sinister reason. But the countdown has already begun. . .

172 Hours on the Moon Reviews

A chilling, shivers-down-the-spine thriller...a high-quality piece of meticulously researched and realistic sci-fi/horror. This near-future tale falls within the blurry walls of young adult fiction but there's nothing to deter older readers. There are no punches pulled when it comes to offing major characters all the way through, and the final twist is satisfyingly merciless. -- John Wyatt * Sun *

Gripping and suspenseful, 172 Hours will have readers constantly asking themselves how the characters can possibly survive.

Original, creepy, intense, and quite violent, 172 Hours is page-turning sci-fi that will stay with readers long after the shocking and heartbreaking conclusion.

* School Library Journal *
This irresistible premise is often intoxicating and occasionally downright terrifying... Ultimately, this downbeat novel offers few answers, just the cold, unfathomable depths of space - and that alone is pretty darn effective. * Booklist *
Creepy and bleak, Harstad's story is both psychologically and atmospherically disturbing. * Publishers Weekly *
A nifty surprise ending will get readers' attention. Interesting and original. * Kirkus *
A spine-shilling thriller... Johan Harstad blend science fiction, urban legend, and horror into a tale that leaves the reader looking over their shoulder long after finishing the book. -- Benjamin Scott * Carousel *
