What We Pretend To Be by Shaun David Hutchinson (57)

In We are the Ants, Henry Denton has spent years being periodically abducted by aliens. Then the aliens give him an ultimatum: The world will end in 144 days, and all Henry has to do to stop it is push a big red button. (How’s THAT for a premise?  If you haven’t read this yet, you want to now right?!)
Now, in Shaun David Hutchinson’s new short story, What We Pretend to Be, fans can glimpse some of the impossible decisions other characters have faced at the hands of the aliens, and even see Henry’s very first abduction.

REVIEW:
Cute!
Now I now more about, We Are The Ants, which I still need to read. I think I am going to love it too, based on what I read here so far. 
Alien abductions. Not something I read usually, but maybe I should be more open. I may be missing out otherwise. 
Only 26 pages long but it definitely left me wanting more. Not because of a cliffhanger, but because it is so interesting. The synopsis, the cover, the short story read, all show me that the full length book is going to be worth it all. 
This is just an introduction to the characters though, so I am treating it as such, and don't really see a story other than these abductions are happening to several people. I guess all the answers I have and more will be revealed in the novel.

3/5

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
