3.5 / 5.0 stars
Here’s the million dollar question: Is there life on other planets? What is out there? What do they look like? Do they think?
Eat? Sleep? It’s such an interesting subject and one that I am absolutely fascinated about. But here’s a little spoiler for you: This book is interesting, but it’ll definitely not bring you concrete answers. On the contrary, it will make you even curiouser.
And that’s definitely not something bad!
I loved what this author did. She gathered theories and studies, and added pop culture to it, to make it easier to visualize and understand.
From Star Trek to Avatar, Jaime Green compared the animals, environment, and people to speculative descriptions of other civilizations.
The part that I loved the most was when the author mentioned that, in order to imagine alien life, a leap of faith is required. We’d need to be empathic, and understand that they might be completely different from us in the way of thinking and looking. And let’s be honest, it’s hard enough to do that on Earth with our own people and animals. Sad, but true.
I liked the book overall, and it really caught my attention. Some parts became a little dragging and I lost focus and attention, but I still highly recommend it if alien life is something that sparks your interest.
