    So-so

    Interesting premise, but any race advanced enough to achieve space travel would probably be advanced enough to answer the questions they came to Earth to answer.

    Has all the elements of a good short story

    Interesting twist. Unexpected ending. A few typos probably related to spell-checkers and computer-editing software, which did not distract from the style of writing. 96 pages.

    Great Story

    I also wish this was longer. It was excellent for a short story, and it has great potential to be a full-length novel. A few typo's but meh, it was free. Flavio Olcese should be very proud of his work.

    Loved this book

    This book was amazing!! The story line was riveting it had me hooked from the 1st paragraph and didn't let go till the end. It wasn't too long and wasn't too short. If you need a book to read on a road trip i highly recomend this book.

    I have a new favorite author. What I have read so far, I love. Wish he had more. I love the twists in the story and wish it were longer. There were couple typos or misspellings, nothing that distracted from reading it. From the start the story was engaging and entertaining. I read fast so it was a 30 minute read for me. Well worth the time!

    Great story

    Had intrigue and suspense. It is a real page turner, and a fantastic journey on humanity. Noticed 2 sppellling mistakes but I found those in Stephen King paperbacks before, no no strikes against author for that. Get this and read it you will enjoy it.
