    1. So goddamn weird. Is it sci-fi? Urban drug drama? Dark City?This tale is about a gay drug addict who may or may not have an evil twin. It's a long time before you find out if the evil twin is real, a figment of the hero's imagination, or just a metaphor for drug and alcohol addiction, and even when you do find out, you're stilol not entirely sure what the deal is. Stories don't come much darker than this one, which is the main reason I like it.Still, there are times when the darkness bogs the st [...]

    2. My opinion of this book went from almost stopped reading to couldn't put it down - and back and forth between those two several times. Averaging those out, it's three stars. It's a great idea for a horror story - a real "live" doppelganger shadoes the life of a young man born into the classic cursed Irish family and who runs away to the very mean streets of NYC. The non-linear plot line works sometimes, and sometimes it seems used to fill in a hole in the true narrative of the story. Also, when [...]

    3. 4.25 stars.A well-narrated audiobook that uses paranormal/fantasy aspects to deal with the very gritty reality. Very well-done and interesting, though it could have benefited from a tighter story. In the end it drew out a bit. Yet, it is something completely different and I can highly recommend it!!!

    4. Very enjoyable. Although, it was tough for me to follow all of the jumps back and forth through time. It didn't seem to me as if these transitions were handled smoothly enough.

    5. This was like Irish folklore fantasy meets gritty New York urban memoir with some meditation on the nature of being human and duality thrown in. Also, the AIDS epidemic. So it was really different and pretty great.

    6. Stuff I Read – Minions of the Moon by Richard Bowes ReviewOkay so this book broke me just a bit. It wasn't even what I thought it was, because I went into the book thinking (for whatever reason) that it was a book of short stories and no, it's a novel and yes, it is absolutely amazing. It's a book that explores being queer at a time when it wasn't something that was safe. When it wasn't even something that was legal. It examines family and inheritance and rage and self harm and sex and sexuali [...]

    7. Kevin Grierson comes from an Irish-American family that's cursed by violence, booze and shadows. The Shadows, in this case, are real quasi-people who embody all of the worst instincts and impulses that a person can have. They are like the Id, given substance. In Grierson's case, his Shadow pushes him into drug and sexual addiction and the petty crime that goes along with that lifestyle. The novel, told in a series of vivid flashbacks, starts in the late 40's, in Boston and ends in the 90's in Ne [...]

    8. An evocative, lyrical sojourn that spans decades through the perspective of a materially and metaphysically divided self living and working in New York City. I hesitate to call this fantasy because, while the fantastic appears, so, too, does the uncanny. The unreal nature of this book is untethered from traditional, expected ideas about how the literature of the fantastic should operate, and this free-form exploration lends texture to the prose that I rarely see anymore in contemporary literatur [...]

    9. Very nice book but really really strange and quite depressing at the same time. I feel like it would be a great book having few hundreds pages less, or more "activity" in itAs it is I dropped reading a few months ago and when I feel like I would like to know how it ends it's quite of counteracted by the displeasure of having to read such a heavy writing style.

    10. Found it a little hard to follow, it seemed to jump around quite a bit.Had some trouble keeping interest through out the book.

    11. I guess I'm just a sucker for sci-fi written in a queer voice. Or was it queer fiction with a sci-fi voice?
