Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth

From experience, I would rate this book a 5/5 for its amazing characters. What I like about this book is how the author was able to manipulate real events and turn it into a story that fits into another. I like the way the character were modernised and the characteristics and the traits they expressed.
Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth is about Prez mellows and an alien called Sputnik going on a mission to save the world from getting shrunk to the size of a golf ball. To Prez and his 'delusional' grandfather, Sputnik is seen as a strange creature dressed in a kilt and a jumper and a goggle hanging down from his neck but to everyone else, he's seen as a dog of different breed depending on who sees what.
Unlike most books I've read, this story has a fast paced beginning which hooks the reader not to stop reading and engages their mind. To me, the plots were well constructed and the events merge perfectly well to create a masterpiece. The final resolution of the plot was credible in relation to the rest of the book because Sputnik was sent by Laika (the first living creature to first orbit space) to look after Prez's grandpa but instead, prioritised himself to look after Prez instead which contributes to hilarious hidden jokes in the story as its not only him who got muddled up in the story and just in case you're wondering who else gets muddled up in the story, it was Prez's grandfather.
In conclusion, I rate this book a 5/5 for its creativity, humorous jokes and a well-thought plan. Furthermore, I would like to recommend this book to adventure lover and those with a great sense of humour - trust me. You will love it!
