Jan 18, 2013 Umberto Rossi rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
It's simply one of those science-fiction novels that are too complex and passionate for certain sci-fi fans, and too science-fictional for more sophisticated readers (or better, those readers who believe they're too sophisticated for sci-fi, and don't know s--t about science-fiction). Unluckily. It's one of the best American novels I've ever read, and it says so much, maybe too much, about how much men (I mean males) owe women, about what role women really play in your life, and teaches truths m ...more

Hmm. This was odd, for sure. I took way too long to read it, though -- it was in my bathroom so I read it only sporadically, and it took me two and half months. I may have felt differently had I read it at a normal rate.

Anyway. It was an interesting perspective on an "alien invasion," but there were so many weird things going on that never really went anywhere. Like, what was up with the medium? And it felt like she had all these weird biological facts about the aliens, but I didn't think that t

A gem that deserves far more consideration. The West Wing with grey aliens, if you'd like. Dwells between speaking to the human condition & the sentient condition through the lens of alienation, & an alien nation. Plus, sinister baby food! --MK

In its own quiet little way, this is one of the most disturbing books I've ever read.

THEY ARE AMONG US.
In this 1993 book, the aliens are here on Earth--and it's definitely not a secret.
Reen is a "Gray," a small gray-skinned alien having a huge head with big black eyes--and he is the White House chief of staff. This is an alien invasion story crossed with a political thriller- and it works as an exciting narrative as well as being thought-provoking science fiction.
We follow Reen as he plays his political power games with the FBI and the CIA. And, increasingly, he's playing po

Not for me.

I tried but just couldn't get into it. I don't think the set-up/world was explained very well initially. (I am not a huge Sci Fi buff, so maybe that's why I "didn't get it".) But, after all, I just wasn't invested enough to finish the book. I read the first few chapters and the last few then quit.

This is a new release from Event Horizon EBooks, an e-book reprint of the original 1993 Harcourt Brace & Company printed edition. Note that the rating is posted by the publisher.

I read this a while ago, but didn't remember it. A political thriller with aliens that weren't quite believable.

Un romanzo decisamente intrigante, ma troppo negativo nell'atteggiamento di fondo. Alcune idee decisamente buone, una scrittura scorrevole, ma la negatività che lo permea lascia la bocca molto amara.

A choppy thriller. The main character was interesting and well developed. I enjoyed the world building the author created with her aliens.

Pitch perfect! The first book I ever read by Anthony and I was hooked. Wish she was more well known, an imaginative and gifted writer.

It was odd, though probably a good odd.
I really like the concept of loving what you're killing, it does make dilemmas much more poignant, I find.
