I Cannot Recommend This Highly Enough!
Reviewed in the United States on August 16, 2016
As usual, Peter's work does not disappoint with another tale I can barely put down.
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!
