Green aliens, the original residents of the earth, are temporarily living in Greenovia, a planet at the edge of the great black hole. They are concerned that with the way humans are treating the planet, there might not be anything left of it when they will return.

The alien romance, however, turns to be a key in understanding the humans’ plan for the environment.

Will anyone be able to save it?

As soon as I read the premise, I knew I had to find out more. There aren’t a lot of examples of aliens acting benevolently in the science fiction genre, so I get excited every time I find something that assumes beings from another planet would want to help humanity instead of harm us. The creative approach to Greenovians and their plans for us kept me reading until the final scene. There were so many possible paths their visit could take that I had to know what would become of everyone.

Unfortunately, all of the characters in this story were flat. I found it hard to take them seriously because of how many stereotypes were used to describe them and how little time the narrator spent explaining their personalities. They often read like caricatures of certain types of people. It would have been really helpful to get to know them better so that I could see them as individuals instead.

There were some fascinating plot twists in this tale, however. It was difficult for the green aliens to understand why humans behaved the way they did. The cultural differences between their species and our own were so massive that there were many things that simply didn’t translate well between us. I found it very interesting to see how the aliens interpreted the human’s actions and how they reacted once they believed they’d figured out what we want.

A Starlet is Born should be read by anyone who enjoys aliens.
