“Adventures of Moniko: Evolution of the Soul Through the Spirit of the Child” is a book of mystery and weird sci-fi-like magic. As you travel with the main character Moniko around the land of Sun and to different places on Earth, Moniko learns about life, love and how to live in peace and harmony.
LS Myers definitely has a unique writing style all her own. I don’t know what her main point was in “Adventures of Moniko,” but if it was confusion, she was right on track. I don’t even know if Moniko is a human or an alien-morphing-like creature.
If I had to suggest “Adventures of Moniko” to anyone it would be a young child under 12 who likes to read weird sci-fi books with a storytelling-around-a-campfire feel.
“Adventures of Moniko: Evolution of the Soul Through the Spirit of the Child” is a book that I thought I would like by the look of the cover, but as soon as I started reading, that old saying popped into my head. “You can’t judge a book by its cover.” Although I may not of liked “Adventures of Moniko” somebody else might like it. I just thought it was full of confusion not mystery and I suggest LS Myers rethink her writing style.
