(Jen, to Alex, in HOW TO DATE AN ALIEN)
I have heard people describe this book as "part Twilight, part Men in Black" and that is EXACTLY what it is (maybe with a teeny bit of Independence Day thrown in near the end). But don't get me wrong - HOW TO DATE AN ALIEN is not just a mashup of these other works. It's entirely its own thing - a delightful, well-paced story with memorable characters (including an extremely hot alien). Thank you to Magan Vernon for introducing me to Ace, my new book boyfriend - the very first alien I have ever found sexy :-)
Well, Alex was just kind of thrown into this Alien stuff and she acted like everything is normal. She does say a couple of times that she didn't know they existed before now but she doesn't even question it. A normal person would actually question their sanity, she just accepts it as given.
And I find it funny that she's supposed to have a really high IQ and then gets a "security" job of checking out alien blogs. I would understand if she was some powerful hacker. But blogger?
It's pretty obvious from the start that Ace is her love interest but did it have to be insta love? And what's up with Gavin? He's acting very jealous and possessive and he never even met Alex before she came into Circe nevertheless share any intimacy to explain his behavior.
Everything in this story was just a big drama over nothing. Like Jen encouraging Alex to seduce Ace and then scolding her for dating him. And then that entire rule breaking everyone is talking about. What are the rules? Alex doesn't know them and neither does the reader. I know it's supposed to portray a forbidden romance but one doesn't really get that feeling since we don't really know why it's forbidden.
Her Dad actually made her a prisoner with a monitor cuff on her ankle without explaining why it's bad for her to date an alien. Malcolm finally sort of explains it to her that it's somewhat like if an interracial couple would be dating back in the sixties. I'm not entirely sure this explanation and constant comparison to Romeo and Juliette is the right way to go. It doesn't feel very much forbidden love apart from people saying so.
War? Seriously? Do you want to know how they end war? They profess their love in front of the alien Queen. Yeah.
