Too many idiots, not enough plot
This was such a frustrating book. There’s a few interesting ideas there, and the core concept - a boy’s rare brain disorder allows him to tune in to alien communications - but there’s not enough plot for a whole book.
So to slow things down, our author repeats plot points, especially the old All Adults Are Idiots one, which is fine in small doses, but in this case means that a whole bunch of world-class scientists have toddler-level reasoning abilities.
Also, you can’t call your series ‘The Invasion Chronicle’ and then treat the invasion as a huge twist that your audience will be totally stunned by.
Promising, then disappointing
I enjoyed the unfolding alien contact story enough to overlook the recurring “adults are stoopid and kid saves the day” theme. However this story turned into a totally new direction towards the end, and it all got too much for me. I did not finish the book because I lost all enjoyment.
