Can't wait to see the film version.
To the point, Eric Tozzi's "The Scout" kicks ass.
Nothing could be further from the truth. What Tozzi gives us in his debut novel is a heart-felt science fiction story with a soul.
It sounds fairly straight forward -- an alien race sends a scout ship that lands in semi-rural Indiana. Jack McAllister, a sci-fi author, is the best authority on what the wreckage could be. Jack is in town to bury his father, a retired NASA engineer, and to sort out what will happen to his Alzheimer's-stricken mother. With Jack grounded in reality, the spectacular happens all around him.
Along the way, Jack finds himself trapped between a vixen of a TV reporter and a young female sheriff's deputy.
As the story progressed, I found myself drawn deeper and deeper into Jack's tale, sympathizing with his pain and awestruck at the alien presence on the earth, just like he was. As Jack would do things, I wanted to shout at him, telling him it was stupid or to yell in encouragement along the way -- I was that invested.
Tozzi paints a terrific picture of what would happen on a small scale if this were to happen. We've all seen the Independence Day scenes of blowing up L.A. or D.C., but what if this landed in your backyard in Smalltown USA?
Great job -- I'll look forward to anything Mr. Tozzi gives us in the future.
