I hope we are going to see a lot more from this author. This was such a refreshing, as well as a funny and interesting story. I was dying to see the outcome but didn't want it to finish, so decided to read it slowly which only worked for a couple of chapters. A must read for everyone.

I really really enjoyed reading this book, I didn't want it to end. I found myself attached to the characters as they were so believable and had their own personalities and rooting for them when the story tested them. I am really hoping that there is an other book to proceed and continue the story as it does suggest that will happen. The story read very much like the Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy with a humorous narration and a fresh unique perspective look on every day life. The plot was well structured and was easy to read so that any one from the age of 13 and up can read and understand the references that can be a little adult without being explicit or rude, if it was a film perhaps a PG rating... The book title would give the impression of a heavy SciFi theme but is quite light in that respect.

If you have read this review to find out if you want to read this book then, quite simply you should and you will enjoy every bit of it.

I really enjoyed this book. It's a lovely easy read story about a group of alien spiders sent from a foreign planet to observe humans and their habits. I thoroughly enjoyed following the lives of Phil and Caroline and debs humour throughout kept me thoroughly entertained. The descriptions of characters and scenes are engaging and I could easily spend endless hours in the garden immersed in this book. And just for an added bonus the characterization of spiders has lessened my fear of the creepy crawlies. Well done Deb!

I just love this book, it made me laugh out loud at times, the whole concept of spiders with webcams is brilliant, I found I could relate the spider characters to people I know now and have known over the years. I look forward to a follow up of this book and I would recommend it highly, enjoy a new concept that could just possibly be based on fact, let your imagination run riot.

Review of

An Alien's Guide to the
Human Species

by Deb McEwan

Reviewed by R. Murry

"I wish I was a fly on the wall when they had that conversation." is a common saying in America. I don't know how that phrase is used in English across the pond in the United Kingdom and won't attempt to try. Ms. McEwan has other creatures listening, and watching in on English families from the floors and walls in her enjoyable novel of aliens conducting their investigation of the human race.

This family comedy has its aliens translating for their planet and the reader what is going on in the daily lives of a couple from their meeting to marriage up until an event that explodes into pandemonium. Daily lives of a family are boring, but not seen from the eyes of outsider - spiders with webcam units, reporting back to their planet those normal day to day happenings.

If you don't know what a cuppa, a nutter, a nappy, or blokes are, you may need an English dictionary. I'm just kidding. Deb McEwan's writing is clear cut and clever.

The alien's description of an event such as potty training a child is delightful and others are somewhat hilarious to the creatures they are reporting to in the weekly TV report. To us humans, it's just life. And the aliens have their own problems on the mission they're on - conflicts abound. They have a life too, as told by their leader.

If you want to have some fun and see what the humans and aliens are doing in England, get Debbie McEwan's book and read it event by event, laughing in between each events.

This is not a sci-go BOOK as the name may suggest, but a story about relationships - albeit some of the relationships are between alien spiders! If you are a fan of the unusual then this book is for you. The story is fab and the humour made me laugh out loud. I highly recommend this book, you won't be disappointed.

This book is humorous, heart-warming and easy to relate to. I found myself laughing out loud at some of the antics of the extended human family which is under observation by the alien spiders. It also explores the intricacies of relationships; between lovers, parents and children, siblings, friends and also between spiders. That's right...spiders! During the extensive operation to relay the human story back to the Terries, the alien spiders too have their own stories of love (heterosexual and homosexual), friendship and a strong work ethic! For me, part of the humour was the way in which the spiders report on the idiosyncrasies displayed by English folk including 'having a cuppa' and talking about the weather. All in all a great light-hearted read which I would recommend to anyone.

A fascinating look at the humans from the perspective of aliens and alien spiders. Funny and intriguing I loved every page. So well written that I feel I know the families - both human and alien - intimately. I've never read anything like it before and would highly recommend it.
