Summary

Aliens exist, the government knows, and Dan McCarthy just found the proof. When Dan McCarthy stumbles upon a folder containing evidence of the conspiracy to end all conspiracies - a top-level alien cover-up - he leaks the files without a second thought. The incredible truth revealed by Dan's leak immediately captures the public's imagination, but Dan's relentless commitment to exposing the cover-up and forcing disclosure quickly earns him some enemies in high places. For his whole life, Dan McCarthy has searched for a reason to believe. Now that he finally has one, he might soon wish he didn't.... Not Alone is a stand-alone tale of contact and disclosure for the 21st century.

Great but...

Please don't let Americans do bad English impressions, no one in the UK actually sounds like Dick Van Dyke.
Otherwise I really enjoyed this book :)

Wanted: Editor for basically good story....

As a fan of scifi novels I was bound to like this story which served up enough heroes, villains, aliens and plot twists to make it a page-turner.

The book is about a third too long and can be ponderous in the extreme explaining the obvious to avoid excluding any reader and this could be fixed by a good editor. It has the feel of a self published book and needs the blue pen on both a tendency for over description and some serious correction of phrases and slang that too often sound British when they are American in setting or voice. I believe the author originates from Edinburgh so is bound to use some British terms. I thought he did dialogue much better than his exposition.

The narrator has a likable voice, good pace and conveys excitement well; but roamed into out and out comedy on his rendering of British accents and pronunciations. His prime minister sounding like the baby on Family Guy, and the others so far off the locations suggested (the PM's crony, John, so far from a Yorkshire accent he may as well have been the alien) it was just distracting at times - not that I could do regional American accents justice. But the narrator is an actor and if he's going to attempt the accents, he should really research and learn them.

Overall enjoyable enough to get to the end and I could see this turning up as a Netflix mini series.

A fun yarn with some unexpected twists.

Good conspiracy theory thriller. I do wish the narrator knew the difference between a Sheffield and cockney accent though. that was pretty jarring.

LOVED this!!

I absolutely loved this book! The story had me hooked the whole way through, I couldn't stop listening (much to my partner's annoyance). It's a long book, but I didn't want it to end.

Only one criticism is that the narrator couldn't do accents AT ALL, it was almost comical!

Bottom line: I love good sci-fi and long audiobooks, and this ticked the boxes!

Good story, so-so performance

Enjoyed the book in general; plenty of twists and turns and interesting characters. For the most part, the performance is fine, but man does he mangle a British accent!

Worth a listen.

Good read! Great Sorry. .

Good take on the first contact scenario from the ground level up.
the only slight hiccup was the narrators non American accents... That British accent was awful..

Narrator needs to work on his British accents.

A good story that's easy to get into. But the narrators attempts at British accents was almost comical.

Could not stop listening.

The book is well written. The plot is good. Plenty of twists. Would not normally listen to a book this long, but well worth every word.
Highly recommend listening.
