A great read, indeed. “Readers Favorites” Review. Reviewed By: Divine Zape Review Rating: 5 Stars ________________________________________The Autopsy of Planet Earth by R.J. Eastwood is a spellbinding science fiction novel with a very original concept and great potential for entertainment, a story that raises intriguing questions about mankind’s destiny on the dying planet. The reader meets compelling characters, including an alien, Legna, who is on a mission to restore humankind to its original place of peace and balance with the earth. A chief of staff at the US Presidency, Gabriel Ferro, and Dr. Catherine Blake are transported into a world beyond anything any human has ever known. The question that follows this adventure is: can man be stopped from continuing to be a threat to the world he inhabits? The answers to this question will surprise the reader as they follow the well-sculpted characters. R.J. Eastwood shows a lot of imagination in crafting this story and one can’t fail to notice the historical and scientific elements that are so brilliantly woven into the plot. The writing is injected with great realism and there is a prophetic message that comes out very clearly — humanity’s greed is at the root of the earth’s ills. The conflict developed in this book is monumental, and it is about the survival of the planet, a question that becomes today’s pressing reality with the increasing levels of global warming and natural calamities. The writing in The Autopsy of Planet Earth is excellent, with vivid descriptions that allow the reader to have clear images of elements of the setting. Here is a story that will entertain readers and force them to look at the earth with new eyes. Brilliantly plotted and accomplished with a master’s touch. A great read, indeed. Read more

Page turner - couldn't put down Read the first two short chapters of this novel and you’ll be hooked wanting to know where this imaginative and inventive sci-fi story is going. Be prepared for unexpected surprises. Author Eastwood has created an immediacy that propels this novel forward at a quick pace page after page, twist after twist. I particularly enjoyed the way the human characters are so clearly defined. It is their journey we experience through their eyes when they come face-to-face with extraterrestrials racing to an ending you won’t see coming. Be prepared for revelations about human society that are not openly discussed. Be prepared for aliens who believe they can change mankind for the better. Or can they, and if so, at what price? I enjoyed it immensely. Five stars! Read more

Action-packed Autopsy of Planet Earth I just finished reading “The Autopsy of Planet Earth”. Very enjoyable! A page-turner, for sure. Couldn’t tell where it would end. And as with all stories like this, I’m left wanting MORE. I want to know what’s in that alien’s silver box!! A sequel? With lots of action, danger and surprises, I can almost see the movie version of this as I read. With an alien named Legna ensconced in The White House taking complete control, and ‘bad actors’ mysteriously ’evaporating’ around the globe, will all of Earth’s difficulties be solved by far more advanced beings? Will our hero, the dead President’s young, former Chief of Staff, be able to lead the world’s population to reconcile humanity’s coveted free will with an all-powerful alien force that offers (or threatens) to strip us of our troublesome differences and disputes? Will the human race accept help, or will world-wide riots lead to total annihilation? The suspense continues until the satisfying conclusion. Highly recommended, thoughtful entertainment! Read more
