REVIEWING OUTER PERIMETER NOT FIRST EVIDENCE. There are scary aliens in this book, but mostly it reads like a very long and boring X-Files movie. But that is not why I bailed. This author sets the story in SW OR but apparently thinks the weather there is like NE WA. Nope, you do not get subzero temps there unless maybe you are standing on top of a mountain. Worse, he writes about a character with a cat and has clearly never owned a cat. It's as ⏬

LitStephanie if he wrote the scenes with a small dog and then used the find and replace function to swap dog words for cat words. The dialog is sometimes also unrealistic, as when a woman yells at her friend/sometimes lover "you made love to her!" when the natural phrasing would have been something like "you f$#cked an alien lady, are you out of your damn mind?!" 3mo
