Alien Wind from the Stars - Molfetas, Dimitrios
Alien Wind from the Stars was free when I downloaded it. It's $2.99 now. I can't believe I read the whole thing. I almost gave up a few times, but just had to see how it ended. I wasted my time. There is one type of book I really can't stand. That's a book where the characters spend more time thinking to themselves than interacting with other characters or their environment. Introspection has its place, but it should be a small one. It took a long time to figure out why this book would be considered science fiction. Then the flying saucer showed up and the science fiction part became obvious. Yes, a flying saucer. The story continued to drag along like a grade school dance recital — some brief moments of interesting and long periods of why-am-I-here. The book was so slow I even got caught up in counting the misspelled or completely wrong words. Don't waste your time. Not recommended.
