‘Return to Earth’ is the second book in the Galaxy series and a sequel of ‘Beyond The Milky Way’. After having liked the first book, I was curious to know what happens to the protagonists and how they ‘return to earth’.
After successfully retrieving the aliens’ ship and escaping from the Shadow People, Don, Terry and Kim set off in the spaceship. They intend to drop Tom to his region on the way, but when they are chased by the Shadow People, the aliens directly send the ship to Earth. Thus, Tom is forced to go with them, leaving behind his much tensed father.
However, in the hurry to escape the Shadow People in order to not lose the ship, the aliens accidentally send the astronauts to Earth in the wrong time. Having time travelled while on Etoo, Kim, Don and Terry have already seen Earth’s future and how devastating their beloved planet looks. However, it is now time for them to practically see and experience it.
The four companions land on Earth in the future and are shell-shocked to see its miserable state. While all the water bodies have dried up and land has become barren, America as well as most of the countries in the world have been divided into parts. People are struggling for survival and finding it difficult to arrange for basic everyday needs.
The only hope for Kim, Terry and Don is to go back to Etoo and return to Earth in their time in order to change the situation and prevent Earth from getting engulfed by destruction. However, a group of rogues steal the solar panels on the ship, which are important for the ship to recharge and take the four back to Etoo. While going to Los Angeles to retrieve solar panels, the four face various tricky, scary as well as adventurous situations.
The writing style, as in the previous book, is simple and devoid of difficult terms. However, there are many grammatical mistakes, which is a bit of a turn off.
In comparison to the first book, the second one doesn’t go up to the expectations. Although the book is a nice and interesting read, the number of errors makes it sound a bit off. However, the way the author has explained the dangers that Earth would encounter in the future is remarkable. It sends out a message to each one of us to safeguard our planet and stop our harmful activities right away that is destroying our dear home. If we continue doing everything wrong that we are doing right now, Earth may end up in a similar or a worse state as described in the book.
