Book review After reading over this book, it gave me a lot of information. It gave me information about aliens, UFOS, Mars, bacteria on other planets, and what we have discovered for the past 200 years. The person who wrote this book was Charles Oxlide. And the name of his book is the mystery of life on other planets. But basically this book is about scientist giving us information about what they know about outer space. The age group for this book would probably be 11 and up. The information in this age group does fit. I would say that the writer used a monotone voice. The information in this book is in orderly fashion. The writer presented the book nicely. There would be a couple of things that I would change. Like I would have more pages. And make the book more interesting. I would have more information. And I wouldn¿t talk about one topic for too long.
