First the good news: it was free. It's mostly downhill after that. First, this book must have skipped the editing process. it is full of typos and grammatical errors to the extent that some sentences must be reread a few times to understand exactly where they're going. Beyond that, the conversational style is very stilted and doesn't flow well. This may be intentional as a means to show these people have never been to earth or it may reflect the fact that the author is not [I think] a native English speaker. Either way, it gets in the way of what story there is. What also gets in the way of the story is the repeated over-reactions displayed by the main characters. It is difficult to understand the motivation behind these knee jerk reactions in what should be ordinary conversations. I'm not doing a good job describing this but you'll know it when you see it. Now the confession: I've only read 20% of the book. I'm really pushing hard to keep going, hoping it gets better. If I do and it does, I'll revise this review.
