The blurb:

Confessions of a Traveler: The Observations of Alien 597

Grotesque insect looking beasts, which burst out of your chest, and have acid for blood. Grey and short aliens with big eyes, who want to take over your mind, and they do horrible experiments with instruments that go up your anus. They’ve come to take over the world, and make you into a zombie or dinner. If they ever land in full view, they would either be worshiped and a new religion would form, or murdered immediately, and their ship parts sold to the highest bidder. Alien 597 read her report about aliens that humans had encountered.

A short story about an alien visiting Earth.

My thoughts:

Confessions of a Traveler: The Observations of Alien 597 is a short story about an alien who comes to earth to study humans, not quite knowing what to expect. She has read reports by fellow travelers that the aliens we have encountered previously are all hideous creatures who came to earth to subjugate mankind, and perform foul experiments on us. 

I was drawn to this book by the blurb, wondering what this particular alien had in mind. Was she learning about earth to blend in or help us, or to subjugate us? Obviously their intel was inaccurate concerning aliens we have already encountered, and was probably gleaned from watching sci-fi films on the 'TV box'.

Alien 597 is an innocent. She arrives in the USA and is confused by the things she sees. She appears child-like in her trusting of people, and reckless in her behaviour when she sets out to save a puppy from certain death.

This is a quick read, and I was slightly disappointed that it wasn't longer as there is so much more this gentle alien could have commented on. This story made me wonder just how an alien really would view the human race.
