Losing Author Perry Moore

I've never read Hero by Perry Moore...but I do own the book. And not only do I own it, I actually bought it, which I figure I should mention since we all know that bloggers owning a book doesn't mean they bought it. I just want to say that, because right now is a good time to be supporting Perry Moore and his work.

On February 17th, I believe, Perry Moore passed away at the age of 39...which is just wow. That's so young and this incredibly sad. I really do hope to move Hero up on my list of TBR books so I can post my thoughts on Let's Get Beyond Tolerance.

For those that don't know, Perry Moore was an out author and executive producer of The Chronices of Narnia. Hero is actually about a superhero that happens to be gay.

If you want to buy the book, we get a small percentage for the site if you use our link (Amazon Associates) but you don't have to. Feel free to get the book however you wish.

Has anyone read Hero and have thoughts already? Or just something you want to share about Perry's life and death?

I found this information on After Elton and you can read more about it here.

No!!!

Hero is great. I read it a few years ago and I've always admired his courage in writing something so different and unique. I was really looking forward to more books from him, but I guess it's not meant to be.

RIP...

And after reading that article, I see that he died in the same circumstance my out-and-proud uncle died in a year ago... sad day.

I bought this for my daughter when she was going through her superhero phase. When I was skyping with her the other day, she told me about Perry Moore's death. She was really sad about it because she enjoyed his book so much.
It is very sad.

I was sad to hear about his death too. Hero has also been on my TBR list. It's a shame that a talented person like that dies so young.
