A great novel - it captures the terror of an alien invasion and the resulting panic perfectly (far better than the 2005 movie with Tom Cruise). You'll get so caught up in the story you'll have trouble putting it down!
When Chris Seabranch is not on a treasure hunt, fleeing from aliens or conjuring up interesting scientific articles as a Danish science journalist, he likes to write fantasy books. Butterfly Islands is a great example of his storytelling skills, and was conceived during a 175 kilometer walk around Mount Blanc in France. As our Author of The Day, Seabranch chats about female pirates, 15 year olds and butterflies.
