My Thoughts

It was my first time reading this author and it was interesting read. It was out of my genre to what I usually go toward but all in all I didn’t mind it.


Alien Baggage Allowance is about Aliens and them coming to earth. Its funny, has its dark humour which had me laughing, and smiling at some of the jokes. The book poked at us, as humans and how aliens would(maybe) perceive us in the eyes of a whole other species.


Most of the chapters began with ‘When they arrived,’  and each chapter was a different encounter with an alien. Either the human’s perspective and sometimes the aliens. The book wasn’t annoying with every new chapter was a complete different scene. It was very entertaining. Some chapters were longer than others and I mean, they were short, like a couple of sentences short but that didn’t bug me.


I found some of the alien encounters funny. Especially the questions the aliens would ask the humans. They would be really silly, like about humpty dumpty or why don’t all the humans look a like. The aliens had a hard time understanding why we did, what we did. I found it funny how the aliens chased around the butterflies, I don’t know why I found that funny. I just did =)


There maybe some chapters that might come across as offensive but all in all, I enjoyed Alien Baggage Allowance.
