Review- Aoleon the Martian Girl Part 1


Science Fiction Book - Part 1 First Contact - Aoleon The Martian Girl (Aoleon The Martian Girl #1)

Science Fiction Book - Part 1 First Contact - Aoleon The Martian Girl

Crop circles magically appear in Farmer Johnson’s field. A mysterious light sweeps over the night sky and awakens Farmer Johnson and Gilbert, the boy next door.

Curious, Gilbert ventures out to discover the source of the light and stumbles into a beautiful Martian girl sitting in a crop circle. Farmer Johnson also investigates the strange light, and thinking that Gilbert and Aoléon are vandals, he chases them. But they sprint to Aoléon’s saucer and escape only to be pursued by the U.S. Air Force.

Gilbert has never been attacked by swarms of giant killer robots. Never met strange aliens from other worlds. Never skyboarded across a megalopolis hidden deep inside an extinct volcano. Never trekked across a vast Martian desert. And never been eaten alive by a gigantic slor (well, almost never, unless you count Billy the fat bully at school).

And luckily, he has never ever confronted an evil ruler of Mars bent on conquering the Earth to steal its cows.

Never...until now!

This may be the adventure Gilbert always wished for.

If only he can survive.

Join Gilbert and Aoleon in this exciting middle-grade science fiction and fantasy adventure

Aoleon the Martian girl was unlike any book I have ever read. I couldnt put my finger on what audience the book was aimed for, but its not for little ones and its not really for adults. There were words used as descriptions that would confuse young people, and even as and adult, I had a hard time keeping up at times.

A majority of the book was based on Earth, and the last chapeter on Mars, the home planet of the ailen. Part 1 was pretty short, with a great portion of pictures.

I wasnt a big fan of the pictures. When I saw that the book had them, I was excited, but they werent to my taste. It looked heavily animated, and a bit cliche. Honestly Im a big fan of the old fashioned illustrations, so to each their own. What I dont like, someone else will love.

But all in all, it was pretty interesting and Im looking forward to the rest.
