I had been hooked on "Stella" in Xenophobia, but now I've got "Chuckles" I won't be able to forget.
While the ideas of "first contact" can be eerie - even frightening - Peter has the uncanny knack of weaving a tale that won't just have you riveted and turning the pages through the wee hours of the morning, but tossing in science and human qualities and 'voices' to 'hostile' aliens. Reading carefully, you will as I, be highlighting tidbits of humor mixed with messages of hope for humanity to go on; that the possibility of life past our tiny planet is not only a possibility but also something to look towards the future in our vast heavens and galaxies that surround us.
I highly recommend this book to people of all ages. In fact, the first two people I HAD to talk about to were my granddaughters, ages 9 and 13. While I would not put an age-bracket on this book (eg. 'YA'), it is refreshing to read a novel that not only held MY attention, but I can so highly recommend to ANYONE of ANY AGE.
The heroine, Ash, is someone you will be cheering on and her wit and bravery in the face of danger definitely keep you wondering as you turn each page, "NOW what is she going to do - let alone SAY?" EXCELLENT, excellent, excellent writing!
In "Welcome to the Occupied States of America" everyone keeps telling protagonist Ashley Kelly that she's lucky to be alive. Yeah? Try running from aliens when your legs are paralyzed. See how lucky you feel when all you can think about is whether you're actually an orphan but no one has bothered to tell you yet. And at seventeen, romance should be the first thing on Ashley's mind, but her chances of going on a date are zero because a.) a wheelchair is not a great fashion accessory and b.) that pesky alien invasion makes social events a little thin on the ground.
But the good news is, the aliens are intensely interested in her! Okay not at first, but she makes a real impression at the gas station, and no one can ignore her after that
The characters are people you know and care about after just a few sentences, and miss when you finally close the book. The aliens are "people" too, with personalities and agendas, albeit ... well, a little "alien" but comprehensible once you look at it from that perspective. Now, the question is, what to do? Because this is war. So ... what now?
Peter's works often include a level of thought and philosophical underpinnings that are worth revisiting. Pick up Welcome to the Occupied States of America. And then pick up the other titles I've mentioned. You'll thank me later.
