This is a thought-provoking short sci-fi story copyrighted in 1956 which contains an original rather clever idea about the human mind and about enjoying life on earth. A being from another planet, named Kcid, came to earth to help his fellow beings decide whether to settle earth, inhabit the bodies of earthlings, and live here. He is the second such being to come. The first seemed to enjoy life on earth so much he did not communicate his findings to his planet.

Kcid finds that the earthlings are very backward and their science insufficiently developed. Some of their behaviors strike him as strange, especially their sexual desires. He also finds that they are different from beings in any planet; they have two minds, a conscious and a subconscious. The latter causes humans to do things that they would not want to do if they only used their conscious mind. Kcid finds that the subconscious leads to bizarre acts and what humans call insanity. He reports back that he wants to spend a vacation on earth.

Great premise but wish there was a slightly longer storyline that didn't end quite so abruptly. Good descriptive imagery, though.

This was a short story. It was ok for a freebie. If I would have paid for the book I would have been very disappointed.

Very nice work Mr. Lowe. This was a nice, quick read and seems like it would make a great concept for a full length novel. The end was a bit sudden but I really enjoyed what there was. Keep up the good work. I'll be loading the other story "When I Grow Up" as soon as I finish this review.

Was not a book. It was merely a paragraph, which if it had a book after it, it could have been quite entertaining.

Great read but it's too short. Any sequels coming soon? Would love to see /read about how things pan out.
