As it turns out, there is an odd species in a far-off corner of the galaxy causing trouble; humans. Our no-name narrator is a member of an alien species, sent to earth to erase all evidence,either human or physical, of a mathematical breakthrough. This breakthrough, regarding the prime numbers, would give humans more power than they’re capable of handling responsibly. After his initial horror of the species wears off, the narrator begins to find quaint things about humanity that are worth giving a chance.
I haven’t read anything so funny in a long time. Sometimes it’s nice to see how weird everything really is by exploring it from a fresh perspective.
