Tweedlioop is definitely a product of the 80's. It was written then, and it reflects that decade. This somewhat strange story about a man who finds a space alien while backpacking is both cute and funny, but also reflects a bit of social commentary about human beings in general, and our willingness to help people, or beings we know nothing about. And while the main story is about a middle class human helping a lost and injured cute little alien, the subplots about family and loss ground the main character and those around him in reality. This book very much feels like it could happen, its written to feel like an event that you might encounter, and the main character makes choices that you really could see an everyday person making. In short, its a great read, cute, funny, with a side of serious politics and thought provoking philosophy. I'd recommend you at least give it a read, if not buy a cheap paperback copy to stick on your shelf.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
