I received an ebook of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
I quite liked this book. It was interesting, mature, and relevant, which are the reasons I love sci-fi so much. Sci-fi is a genre which can allow authors comment on current and modern societal problems whilst keeping at a safe distance.
Many important themes were explored in this book such as discrimination, gun control, and global warming. Introducing aliens allows the author to give two sets of opposing opinions in an interesting way. For example, looking at gun control from being in a country which allows the right the bear arms, and the outsider's perspective. The only negative about this book was that it tended to drag a bit and repeat itself, therefore conciseness is key. Other than that, I liked Tom the best as a character and look forward to reading more about him in the sequel!
