I have been a big fan of Al's Distant Cousin Series. He caught me in the first book and continued to entertain me in the next 4 books. I was glad to hear that Book 5 was available. This book like the others didn't disappoint me, the Saga continues. Even though it was the fifth book the characters seemed fresh and alive. Al has always done a great job at character development and it continues in Recirculation. The book is about family values, but it doesn't stop there. There is plenty of adaventure to keep you reading to the wee hours. If you haven't read the Distant Cousin Series start at the beginning, Book 5 will entertain you and kepp you wanting more.

Distant Cousin Recirculation, the latest DC installment, does not disappoint. Ana and Matt's twins play a more prominent role in this book and I enjoyed seeing how they have grown and matured. While they each have their own interests and abilities, they also showed their vulnerabilities. I was really worried for Clio and some of the choices she made, but she is a strong young woman and she has a loving relationship with her family. Her new ability was very interesting and extremely well portrayed. In addition to the family challenges, there was also plenty of action and adventure. I was also glad to see Rob and Michelle make an appearance in this book and touch base with them. If you are following the Distant Cousin stories, this book is a must read! If you have not read any of the books, start with the first Distant Cousin book so you will understand the backstories. I love the Distant Cousin characters, they feel like family to me, I am interested in their lives, I worry about them, and I just adore them. I think I've said this about each book, but I think this one is my favorite! Highly recommend!

There are five books. Look at the publish dates to figure out in what order to read them or you will not get the proper timing of events in the story. Otherwise they are pretty separate stories. Great plot that does not depend of high tech SF background. Great characters with realistic values and interaction. The first book is probably the best because you don't know what to expect as is true with all book series. However this series builds on previous books and the story goes pretty well. This is a story of an alien coming to earth and the experiences of that person and the interaction with earth people. It is uplifting and the have some moral content with a good outcome. No bad words but there is action mixed with subtle plot development in between. I recommend them all!

I, too, have been following the adventures of Ana Darcy and the rest of the Méndez clan from the beginning. True, with a mom from outer space they're not exactly your average family. In Distant Cousin: Recirculation, Past continues his unique blend of the adventures that naturally ensue when you're an extraterrestrial celebrity trying to keep your whereabouts unknown with the family-life problems brought about by having two extremely precocious teenagers and aging parents. Well, okay, maybe Julio, who is a genius proto-inventor, and Clio, who is developing her own unique talents (I won't say what they are because it would give too much away) are more than simply precocious, but a large part of Recirculation focuses on their growing pains and attempts to start making their way in the world. The adventure parts are great fun, too, but for me what really made this installment engrossing was the "Bildungsroman" aspect, with Julio and Clio emerging as fascinating characters in their own right, even more than in the previous novel. And you just have to love a family that keeps a Caracol as a pet! Oh, and I didn't actually miss any subway stops reading Recirculation, but only because I was careful to stop reading at the previous stop. . .

I have loved the Distant Cousin series and have waited with baited (bated?) breath for this 5th book. I've devoured the previous books as I could never put them down, and was always so sad when the book came to an end. This time, I am taking Al's advice and pacing and rationing my reading time, to prolong the pleasure of catching up with Ana and the Mendez clan, and those intriguing twins, who I knew would provide a fascinating and unpredictable chapter in this family history (that of course will need further chapters as they mature!). I can only wonder at the vast knowledge in the brain of this author that could not only create the concepts on which these books are based, Distant Cousin history and geneology, the Pod, Hleo, and the dialogue of J-man, (to mention a few), and I feel confident that there is a lot more to come! Thank you so much for providing all this reading pleasure!!!

I have read all of the Distant Cousin volumes and they are all great. The pace of Recirculation is fast and engaging. This story is thought provoking and particularly cutting edge. The characters are deep and delightful. The creator of our distant cousins has a great gift of storytelling, and I am glad he is sharing it with us. I am already looking forward to volume 6 !!
