UNPLUGGED: THE RETURN OF THE FATHERS
"This book redefines what being human is and what our purpose was and should be.
By Michelle Davidson
I was not expecting to love this book as much as did. I thought this was just another sci-fi, aliens are attacking book. This book was so much more than that. It combined religion, history, and science to make one of the most interesting and thrilling books I've read this year. The story jumps between the journey of David Rowan and his companions and stories of unusual events and disappearances. The reading is never tedious, and none of it is useless filler. Everything is eventually tied together and explained. The brilliance of this book is how plausible the story, backed by historical and scientific evidence, seems. I actually looked up the miR-941 gene after reading this book.
But this book is more than a thrilling science fiction story, it is an exciting adventure story of a large group of people. There is even a little romance.There are even some humorous remarks, such as a part where two characters making love on the beach ponder being watched by aliens, when in actuality they are being watched by a patrol boat.
The only thing I didn't like was the main character. As a man who makes his living debunking UFOs, I expected him to refute and argue more with the archeologist about his startling conclusions. He seems to just listen and only mention mild disagreement privately afterwards.My favorite character is Molly. All of the characters are important to the plot and all have their own moments.
There is a lot of anticipation leading up to the end of the book, which kept me reading on. The ending was very good and rapped up the story nicely, it just seemed a little anti-climatic. I still enjoyed this book tremendously. I hope there will be a sequel to it. This book redefines what being human is and what our purpose was and should be.
