Review of 'The Humans : a novel' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

This is my second read by this author. Again it feels like another allegory and I'm not disappointed by that. I usually don't like to be tricked. But who doesn't want to hear that our human existence is better than that of the "perfect" alien race with no death or grief? I wasn't sure what I was reading at first. An alien possessing a human for the purpose of halting scientific/human progression? Ummmm weird. But what a beautiful story this turned out to be. Thank you Matt!
