An alien is sent to Earth to destroy all evidence of a scientific discovery that will advance the human race. He assumes the identity of the scientist who made the discovery in order to infiltrate his work, colleagues, family and is tasked to kill anyone and anything who knows anything about it. It’s sci-fi, romance and murder mystery all wrapped into one great story. However, deeper than that, it is a story about what makes us humans.
It is narrated from the perspective of the alien, and his logical and unfiltered opinions about humans and the society we have created was scathingly honest and hilarious. Yet by the end, as the aliens life transforms, you gain an appreciation of the complexity and beauty of us humans.
This was a really great read. I loved that it was funny and entertaining yet also made you think deeply about the human condition, the meaning of life and social norms- which is essentially what ‘The Humans’ is about. To be able to balance all these things in a single book is pretty amazing.
I give it ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4/5 stars
Definitely recommend it!
