The author put down Rachael and Peter's thoughts in a funny way adding humor to the whole. The characters were believable. There was a few times when I doubted Rachael's sanity but she recovered fairly quickly.
I doubt that hard-core science fiction lovers would enjoy this book but I did. I was looking for something light (check) with a gentle alien (check) preferably male (check) that would happen on Earth (check), and that didn't involve explicit sex scenes (check).
If that is what you are looking for, you might want to try this book.
I did enjoy Peter very much, though, and the world that was built with the alien spaceship and the reason the Ancients were rolling out a plan of assimilation. When Peter ran into trouble with the resistance, the story got page-turningly interesting and I ended up staying up late at night to finish the book.
This is a very soft and slow sci-fi but I kind of liked it that way. Nothing huge happens, just a cute romance with a little alienish happenings.
For some reason I felt like an easygoing sci-fi book, and that's just what I got. I was surprised by how excited I was to get back to Operation Earth every time I had to put it down. It wasn't like it had lots of action and drama, it was just a fun story they kept me entertained.
My favorite part was how odd Rachael and Peter were. They just were weird characters with weird thoughts making weird decisions. It was different, quirky. Rachael didn't let the alien invasion get her down. She lived her life as best she could. And her inner thoughts often had me cracking up. Peter didn't let his duties get in the way of finding companionship and joy in his dismal existence. I loved his fascination with earthly things. I want my very own alien now!
There was a sense of foreboding throughout the novel. We never really know for sure what the aliens were going to do with the humans, how far they were willing to go, and what their real plans were. But overall, Operation Earth was a good mixture of light and darkness.
Don't go into this book expecting a full blown sci-fi novel with tons of action and probing *snickers*. Operation Earth was on the verge of being too slow and uneventful. I happened to of liked the laidback feel, but a lot of people wont.
With the focus being on romance, I wish there was more detail when it came to the bow chica bow wow. I think this book should have read more like an adult or new adult book with a more even mixture of romance and sex. That would have oomphed it up a bit.
There really isn't a climax per se. Operation Earth reads like "this is what happened to Rachel today." Not much build up or excitement.
I liked how sweet the romance was. Rachael and Peter are an adorable couple. They built their relationship around awkward circumstances, but it all worked out perfectly.
No sex scenes to worry about. So this is suitable for a YA, NA, and adult audience. Though there is a sexual assault but it doesn't go too far.
This book will not be for everyone. Hard core sci-fi fans probably will find Operation Earth lacking. But if you are looking for a quick, fun read, then give this one a chance. Recommended.
"If today is the last day of my life I'd like to have a glass of wine and a vat of ice cream. No harm in dying content."
He lifted a snow globe and tilted it a little, raising an eyebrow as the fake snow slid from side to side.
"Let me..." She took it away from him, shook it, and put it back in his hands. "Now it's snowing on all the little animals."
Peter shook it again, this time "properly."
You are cute.
"You know what? You can have it if you want. No matter where you go you can look at it and remember Earth and lasagna."
