We all must have remarked at some point about how technology is slowly affecting our personal, human relationships (or lackthereof). In Lydia Netzer’s first book, the husband of the main character, Sunny, relates best through formulas, rather than personal interaction. When he becomes stranded in space on a mission to colonize the moon with robots (which he sees as no different from humans), Sunny begins to search for the true meaning of humanity and social interaction.
“There are certain novels that are just twisty, delightfully so. “Shine, Shine, Shine” is one. In this first novel, Lydia Netzer takes a hard look at being completely human through the eyes of two people who are kinda not.” – Sherryl Connelly, NY Daily News
“Netzer’s debut, about a heavily pregnant woman left to care for her dying mother and autistic son while her Nobel-winning husband travels to the moon, takes the literary concept of charmingly quirky characters to a new level.” – Kirkus ReviewsDisclosure: RebelMom.com has an affiliate relationship with iTunes & Amazon, which means that purchasing music or books via the links helps support RebelMom.com.
