Review by: Tabitha Ormiston-Smith on March 06, 2018 :
The Other starts strongly and continues well, although I found the ending a little rushed. The characters are engaging and the story well written, but the thing that most impressed me was the originality of the concept. There's nothing like taking a phenomenon and giving it a new slant, and Peake's book gives such a totally new slant on the ubiquitous images one is always seeing of 'aliens' - those stupid-looking little creatures with their huge black eyes that one associates with Area 51 and conspiracy theories - that it just blew me away. Well worth a read.
