Not one of his best, but as a stand-alone book it moves along reasonably well and hangs together better than some I've read. As with many of his books the author seems to draw a parallel with current society, although here the storyline relies on some of the alien element having near-human attitudes and susceptibilities.

This was a brilliant and well researched book. I wasn't sure what to expect but now that I think about it, some of it went as I expected.

Little grammatical errors here and there aren't a problem but in all, the story is excellent. Bringing in resistance to an overwhelming enemy, insurgency, collaboration on both sides l, and the use of current technology.

There are also lessons to. If we are to really explore space and possibly defend ourselves against attack or, to work with those during possible first contact we, need to ignore politics and religion and realise we need to pool all our physical and emotional knowledge together to better ourselves. It may initially use a lot of resources but if profit ans greed are no longer taken into account, the profits could be endless.

A well crafted story. This was all the better for covering the entire event. Some books only cover a snapshot of events and finish without a sequel and can be disappointing. It moved along nicely and never drifted from the action. Having said all that it could quite easily have been written over three novels, invasion, insurgency and insurrection but it was still very enjoyable.

Yeah right. Cunning, sly, untrustworthy, evil. Am I describing the aliens in Mr Nuttall's story of their invasion of our fair planet? Actually I could be describing both aliens and humans and Mr Ns story of how this comes about is a joy to read. As has been remarked before, there are typos and repetition - the classic indicators of direct publishing but readers should be aware that the work will not have seen the copy editor and proof reading process that a "published" book sees, which is why there is a significant cost for the publisher to consider when they take on an author. Sometimes I fold my arms and I say praise be to DP, I would not be enjoying works from any of the authors I do now without it and Christopher Nuttall is one of them. It's obvious publishers can't pick up everyone but many of the DP's do get picked up eventually and rightly so. Back to the book; CN explores themes and scenarios used in other CN works but the context fits so what the hell. It is a page swiper and with very good characterization. Having many individual names to remember can be confusing for someone of low intelligence such as me but that's what the Kindles Notes are for. The crazy science plot devices are used sparingly which enhances the writing and even when used you think "yeah I can see that" and I also like how CN introduces a scene which is open to interpretation and is later explained but the initial effect keeps the flow of excitement. How does Earth fair? We shall wait for the sequel.....

This was the best example of arrogant writing I've seen in a long time.

The aliens wish to invade the earth and convert us all to their religion so, obviously, they land in the continent that does not house any of the main religeous centres! Why? Because ALL aliens MUST invade and beat America first! It says so in the book!

There are also plot holes as big as a planet which does not help with the flow but the poor grammar, spelling mistakes and missing words all remove you from the world as you realise the author has not paid any attention. Words that are obviously spell checked but the wrong word chosen just confuses at times too. The addition of acronyms does not help. Whilst the spoken word might use them it is very poor to use them in the descriptions in the book and only further serves to confuse as you have to work out what the acronyms are for.

The author, basically, goes on to say that America is the greatest country in the world and has the best military in the world, which it doesn't; it just has lots of military.

Come on! Get off your high horse and see the huge opportunity you wasted here. It would have been a mediocre book had it not been for the "America is the best" rhetoric that plagues this book, so instead it plunges to what can only be described as absolute rubbish.

The characters are tossed to one side constantly so you don't care what happens and it gets far too repetitive for it. As for the Iraq part? Total nonsense and a deep misunderstanding of both the culture and history of the country. What a waste of a word count.

I really enjoyed reading Invasion (with plenty of nostalgic nods to other sci-fi invasion novels and TV series), and it built up into an action packed story from the initial detection of a UFO.

The plot kept me interested (always wanting to see what was around the corner, and I wasn't disappointed), though more research was needed with regards to the military services and technology used...these can easily be found by reading good techno-thrillers (i.e. Larry Bond and Tom Clancy for authenticity and application of military hardware).

The book, regrettably loses a star for spelling mistakes, poor grammar and far too much overuse of specific acronyms that then go on to say the same thing again, (and also too many paragrpahs said the exact same thing twice, but worded differently), which sadly kept pulling me out of the story.

Proof reading is definetly needed for this novel.

But despite its few evident faults, I honestly did enjoy the book, and the POV of the aliens was interesting when they were deciphering the likes of Independence Day/Babylon 5/Star Trek TV transmissions and wandering if they were real.

I didn't actually pay for this book, but came across it as a free book on a kindle search, but I'd say the price offered is about right - the book just needs tidying up abit.
