4.0 out of 5 stars Unique political satire
A clever, funny and unique political satire with strong ecological underpinnings. Fast paced and fun to read. Would recommend to others.

2.0 out of 5 stars Far too clever for me
This is classified by the author as eco-political satire however it did not work for me. At the beginning of the story a golden sphere appeared containing an alien, Chepi. I have no idea why the sphere appeared and read the book hoping I would find out but once I reached the end I had no clearer idea.

I certainly enjoyed this science fiction book. The story revolves around the reactions of humans to a golden alien spaceship which suddenly appears in the skies above Vancouver. Some wonderful scenes result with neither the Prime Minister or any of the other politicians having the faintest idea of what to do about the spaceship - but at the same time trying to appear to be fully in control of events and in charge. Really perceptive and so, so, true to real life. Exactly how politicians behave in today's world, not having the faintest idea what to do but desperate to prove they are all knowing and always looking for the way out to blame events on someone else when the s..t hits the fan. And not just politicians, scientists and academics are also shown up for what they really are, after all they are fragile and insensitive human beings as well. This is such a perceptive book, totally spot on with its observations on politics and life. It's not just about the humans but part of the story is also about the interactions between the beautiful but bored alien in the golden spacecraft and the crafty sentient 'computer' who runs the spaceship. Good book and a fun read. Recommended.

This is classified by the author as eco-political satire however it did not work for me. At the beginning of the story a golden sphere appeared containing an alien, Chepi. I have no idea why the sphere appeared and read the book hoping I would find out but once I reached the end I had no clearer idea. Because of the sphere's, which is sentient and may or may not be in charge of Chepi, arrival civilisation falls apart largely due to inept politicians. It could also do with a proof read as there are odd missing words and sometimes extra words added randomly for example "When she did finally did communicate.........."
Probably very clever, with all sorts of messages but far too clever for me.
