Would you want to read this book? Would it correspond to you as a reader?

    Here below is the back cover of the book : 

    Are they little and green? Do they have two eyes, a 
    nose, a pair of ears and a mouth, just like we have? 
    Professor Archer Shinford was about to know.
    10 years ago, Archer had built a machine to 
    communicate with any form of extraterrestrial life. It 
    was a complex device which could pick up or send out 
    sounds to or from Space. Archer invented many 
    machines, but none of them really seemed to work… 
    until this very night.
    Archer was working in his lab’ when all of a sudden 
    the sound machine came to life. Archer jumped. It 
    had been silent for 10 years and now it was beeping!
    Obviously somebody had sent a message to him. 
    For fifteen long minutes the machine kept printing 
    out pages of incomprehensible symbols. After long 
    hours of examination, he eventually decoded the 
    message. It read “friday – midnight – park – 
    friday – midnight – park…“ He couldn’t believe 
    his eyes.


    1) First, say whether you would like to read this book or not.

    2) Then, give some information about yourself as a reader to account for your answer.


    So, would you want to read this book from what you've just read? Would it correspond to you as a reader? Please explain why. You shall express your appreciation and your preferences as a reader.

    Thank you very much.

    Yes, I would read it, I'm willing to try any new sci-fi, it sounds "interesting".

    I think that it sounds suitable for a young teenager who loves science fiction. I have never enjoyed sci-fi myself, even when I was a kid.

    It's not something I would read, unless it was short, as science fiction isn't my favorite genre, either.  

    The back cover would be more enticing without gratuitous stereotyping.  Eliminatie

    "Are they little and green? Do they have two eyes, a 
    nose, a pair of ears and a mouth, just like we have? 
    Professor Archer Shinford was about to know."

     and you have a much more interesting intro. 


    Not interesting?
    I would be intrigued, Hmmmm!!!

    @R....but your mind is in a lol

    The part I would eliminate from the back is childish and trite, in my opinion. I'm more intrigued not wondering if they've brought a supply of "moon cheese" with them (you know the moon is made of green cheese, or something like that).

    I’m not into Sy-Fi so I would just satisfy myself with the back cover. Reading it would depend on the talent of the writer, a well written book can be readable on any subject. I’ve read FARHAM’S FREEHOLD and loved it though it was Sy-Fi……..

    Me personally, no. I'm more into non-fiction books. I feel this story would appeal to younger readers 12+ perhaps. You never know it could become a best seller.
