Julia Quinn is incomparable when it comes to dialogue. Her characters come across as real people saying and thinking things that real people say and think. They're funny, sad, gentle, sensual, loving, lovable and unforgettable!
This is the story of the star-crossed lovers who fall in love, get separated and then meet again.. he wants revenge, she wants to erase him from her history. They both fail.
You might find yourself feeling a little sorry for Robert by the second half of the book because Victoria does not give up.. she drives him to the edge, several times, but he never gives up on her. There a part when he is faced with 'eight hens' and his groom advices him that 'now might not be the best of time to be a rooster.." where I laughed so hard, people thought I was going crazy..
Lovely book, lovely read.. don't miss it and if this is your first Julia Quinn, don't hesitate, she'll get you hooked.

I love Julia Quinn's work. She's a fantastic writer, and most of her books are wonderfully funny and fun to read. "Everything and the Moon" was an undeniably sweet book -- in the beginning. It's absolutely perfect, with the love at the first sight and the romance and then... kapow, throw in a completely misunderstood situation and the madly in love characters suddenly become overly suspicious aliens.
When Robert realizes the misunderstanding, that's when you get the non-alien Robert back. But unfortunately, Victoria insists on being completely stubborn and cliché up till the end of the book. It's a lovely story, but completely frustrating. You want to knock some sense into these characters that've NO idea what they're doing.
Beautifully written, though, and a very touching story. You can't possibly not enjoy Ms. Quinn's books. I definitely suggest reading this one.

With "Everything and the Moon" Julia Quinn has created another distinctive blend of imaginative narrative and expressive characters. Her specialty has always been dialogue- and this tale of star-crossed lovers does not disappoint- her characters spar wittily and often made me laugh out loud. Victoria Lydon is a likable heroine, who, disappointed after a youthful but passionate love affair, grows to be a strong and independent woman. When after seven years, her path again crosses that of her childhood love, Robert, Earl of Macclesfield, she resolves not to fall under his spell again. But love will not be denied- and no matter how much Robert and Victoria try to suppress it, they are drawn together. Theirs is a dance of heartbreak and deception, romance and seduction- you will laugh, you will sniffle, and you will thoroughly enjoy "Everything and the Moon.

Although I got kind of annoyed with how Victoria kept on refusing Robert (even though she found out he was innocent of just trying to get into her pants and then abandoning her) all in all "Everything and the Moon" was a good book. I liked Victoria, except for her stubbornness, however Robert was the book's saving grace. He was sweet, intelligent, and most of all kind. He is a nice change from some of the cruel heroes that are so prevalent in books today. The plot was was well done and generally fast moving. "Everything and the Moon" was a good book that I would recomend to anybody as a plesant (if a tiny bit dull) read.

I thought maybe since it started off so fast it really had nowhere to go. The plot moved along just fine and the heroine seems to be a courageous young woman but Robert was sometimes downright sappy he said I Love You so many times it was anticlimatic. I do enjoy Julia Quinn's novels and found this to be amusing but not the can't but down variety. If it's a sappy regency you're looking for this would be it hot passionate lovers who are torn apart.. nah well I guess I'll give little sister Eleanor a shot in Brighter Than the Sun wish me luck :)

This is my favorite Julia Quinn novel so far (and I've read all the ones since Splendid, thanks to the reprint.) Love at first sight, romantic youthful courting, separation by misunderstandings and dastardly interfering fathers, tense reunion after years of yearning for each other, this book has got it all.
Julia Quinn has a wonderful sense of humor, and a talent for conveying romantic emotion. If you like fun, romance and a bit of history, give this book a try.
