  • review: I picked up the book, turned it around to read the blurb on the back cover - instant purchase! The premise is quirky and weird - four family members from different planets! The book itself is a nicely pieced together bundle of perpectives and clever observations on humanity. I could read it both ways - that these people were really aliens, or were so alienated that they prefered not to call Earth home anymore. The story does falter a bit, but it is still quite visual and interesting. The end absolutely made me sit up and pay attention to what I was reading - so theres's an extra +1 because of that. I didn't know the author was so well known - but now that I do I think about reading more.,
