Top Customer Reviews
Although the product details give away most of the plot it is quite straight forward Connor the main character wants to rather than search for UFOs actually encourage them to visit him.
Most of the book is how he goes about trying to attract UFOs, the book is more of a descriptive work which develops slowly than an action story. I often have problems with translated books but this works well. The author (in the publicity blurb) challenges us to decide which is real and which is fiction, some is decidedly fiction and whether the rest is I just don't care.
Connor is a very interesting character who is determined to live his life how he wants and surprisingly his wife goes along with the unusual relationship without complaint. At the end of the book there is an epilogue which is set in the future and pulls everything together. I can't help feeling there should be another book or even a series between the end of the book and the epilogue.
Still a very unusual story and well worth reading.

Connor Lewis, the main character of the book, is a social dropout as well as a great technician with eccentric ideas. He lives separated from his wife and daughter, however, he is still in touch with them via radio. He's not able to live in the city, because he can't handle the stressful environment which tends to make him sick and uncomfortable. While he lives outside the city in a little self-built hut, he follows an irrational idea to find out whether all the stories about Extra-Terrestrials may have a true core. He eventually builds a camera-trap which is a form of high-tech bait for ET spaceships to get 3D-video footage, then one day the unbelievable happens and the actual story begins to unfold.
Overall, Connor’s Light is highly recommended for anyone who loves an imaginative and thought provoking sci-fi story.
Connor's character is very relatable despite his, or perhaps because of his antisocial behavior. He is wonderfully written and the story flows well from his point of view.
A terrific read for anyone interested in the question. Is there more life out there?
