{{R.E.V.I.E.W}} First Contact : Strings Attached By Paul J. Nelson


About the book : Zalk, an astronomer in an oppressive industrial-age world, discovers more than just life on the other planet they share their orbit with – he forges a telepathic link with an ambassador from this space-faring society, who promises wealth and fantastic technology. The catch? He must implement plans for a mining operation, financed by drops of gold from the heavens and then what exactly are the intentions of this celestial messenger? Can he reconcile with an antagonistic reporter to find out in time? Joining forces may be their only hope to save their world.

My say : It was a quite different genre for me to read. A book full of sci-fi, crazy aliens and many other technology related stuff. I liked the concept which is about a first contact story with an alien race that we have never before interacted with. Thus, The author had so much room for creating a chilling environment wrapped up in a great story. This book couldn’t make an exception to that trend because our protagonist doesn’t really understand what is going on throughout the entire story regarding an alien message he receives. The story features telepathy which was also differently presented in this book.

This book presents a lot of stuff about sci-fi which includes aliens and other wild creatures thus its really important to connect the story with the readers and I must say that it could have been better because this book completely skirted around that issue by making it about technology and world-changing decisions rather than crazy and inventive aliens.

All in all, this book didn’t really rock in any major categories and now the only downside is having to wait an entire year for the sequel to come out. I would like to give 3 out of 5 stars to this book. You can find more about this book on the link below :
