    PDF/EPUB Moondogs eBook Ñ ò s mebel.pro moondogs mobile, Moondogs MOBI35 starsOkay I finished this a couple of weeks ago at the time I finished it I gave it 35 stars but now I'm not so sure I'm thinking the writing probably pushes it closer to 4 stars Moondogs follows several characters whose lives intertwineThere is Benicio who has traveled to the Philippines to reconnect with his estranged father; Howard shady businessman and Benicio's dad; Reynato Ocampo a local policeman whose life has been immortalized in film; Ocampo's special ops unit named Ka Pow; Moniue an American diplomat trying to find herself in the Philippines; Ignacio and his rooster Kelog the villains as well as several othersIt's interesting to see how the characters are joined together and the writing is very goodBut I went into this book expecting it to be a sort of modern day One Hundred Years of Solitude I love magical realism and I was very excited to find something new to read
