Are there any science fiction books written from a non-human (Terran) point of view?
Posted on 18th of October, 2019


Plenty actually. Not all of them are completely from an alien point of view, for example, The Humans by Matt Haig is a great book where only the first half is from an alien point of view. Another great one is Under The Skin by Michel Faber, but stick to the book as the movie is a bit confusing. Octavia Butler also has an incredible series of books called Lilith's Brood that you must read. Lastly, read the Knife of Never Letting Go series. Not all of the books are from an alien perspective, but the last book has plenty of great chapters that make use of this framing device.
