What I like about this book is that it has a realistic feel to it, even though it's about an alien abduction. There's nothing over top and it's clear that the story was well thought out. There's a sprinkling of humor in it too... I think it could have used a bit more though.
One of the challenges in the book is that there are a lot of chapters where it's just the main character, Gil and some aliens that can't (or don't) talk to him. Furthermore, he's in a confined space. This leaves lots of time for inner monologue and reflexion. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but I wish the author had explored this space a little more above thoughts of immediate survival and trying to figure out the motives of his captors. There's room here for deep thought about bigger issues.
All in all, it's really good for a first novel and I'm looking forward to reading more from him.
