“The friendly, English-speaking extraterrestrial you run into outside your house is asking you to recommend the one book, movie, or song that explains what humans are all about. What do you pick?“
I’ll recommend Game of Thrones. No, no, just kidding. Wait. Did you say “friendly”? Do you necessarily need an extraterrestrial to talk about this? Well, seriously, that would be really difficult. I may need more time to think about it.
I want him, or her, to know we humans may be too often stupid, ignorant and weak, but we are still fun to talk to, relatively good, strong in many ways and have some sort of hope in our nature.
As a fantasy reader, I have too many book to recommend. I’d just give my Goodreads link, haha. But, maybe I’d rather recommend him to just try some SNS.
