Editorial Reviews

Review

The creative storyline will keep many readers hooked. --Will Gabbett, Feathered Quill Book Reviews

I recommend Don't Mess With Earth to Sci-Fi and alternative history fans.
--WR Potter for Reader's Choice Reviews

From the Author

Remember, this novel is a very fictional account of human history and of aliens interfering in that history, so the timeline is purposely skewed and some historical characters might appear earlier or even later in the novel.  In some alternate, mirror universe somewhere, Earth could be thousands(or tens of thousands) of years old, instead of "billions and billions" as Carl Sagan used to say.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By R. David Morris on November 15, 2011
Format: Kindle Edition
Okay, first this is a portion of a documentary style book. There is a little stilted dialogue but mostly it reads like a high school history text book. At the end of the story you find out that to read the rest of the book you have to pay an additional 2.99 ebook or 12.99 paperback. This is basically a very boring teaser to get you to pay for the book twice.

Format: Paperback
Because the general sentiment is going to be, "I can write better stuff than this &*$$@@". I will recommend that the author to do better research in future works as some had already mentioned on prior reviews. For my part, his portrayal of the US Military was cartoonish and insulting. There is not "Commanders" in the US Air Force as a rank. No serious attempts to contact the Terrans and discover their motivation? The "President" not getting impeached and sent to prison for ordering a genocidal attack? Russia and China attack the US and are still around to invade it? With what? Oh, please.

I developed more sympathy for the putative bad guys, the Ragnors who come across as hostile as Malvin the Martian of Bugs Bunny fame. Everyone else fell quite short.

This book reads like it was written by a 7th grader. It's a total waste of time and money and is an excellent example of really bad writing.
