5.0 out of 5 stars Clever, funny, knockout, 6 Dec 2013
This review is from: Traveling In Space (Paperback)
Possibly the most straight-faced satire I've ever read; Traveling in Space combines wit, adventure and detailed character study, as well as throwing in harsh examinations of the human concepts of love, religion and politics.

When interstellar travellers arrive above Earth, curious about the Otherlife, you quickly find yourself on a satirical romp that uses the utterly deadpan humour and total honesty of the Aliens as a foil for the scheming, complicated and emotional Humans. We delve into morals, both of the unusual and complex problems facing the Aliens when they realise they can't simply take over the earth, and of the Humans, particularly the leaders who see their opportunity for Grand Designs.

The Aliens are not without their own failings, and they are forced to confront their own hypocrisy over their enforced population control, and ultimately with a rogue element of command that threatens their entire relationship with the Earth.

Bitingly dark and endlessly teasing; this novel examines our own often silly idiosyncrasies and beliefs, and asks if we really understand our actions or just follow the base desires of our genetic coding.

A good book, but felt like it was written in the 70's
