I thought that the book was very slow moving. It was also very depressing. Many friends were lost, and some were then recovered. It had a very big twist at the ending. I am not going to tell what the ending was though. I thought that the theme of the book was about friendship and sticking together. One alien wanted to be friends with a boy who tried to act very nice. I also saw how Fritz and Will stuck together through the whole hard time. I would give this book a seven out of ten.

The book also has the inslaved humans of the tripods who are brainwashed not eccept any normal people. This theme shows how devided different people could be."
