Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Gesus, Marry and Joh is a work of fiction in the science fiction, paranormal drama, and intrigue subgenres. It is best suited to the general adult reading audience. Penned by author Michael John Cruit, the story revolves around an Observer, an alien, who arrives on Earth with a mission to rescue a fellow alien held captive by the U.S. government. This alien Observer speaks English but has gained his knowledge of U.S. culture primarily through studying TV programs, which leads to some amusing and thought-provoking moments. The novel delves into the challenges of an alien trying to navigate a world of advanced human technology, all while being hunted by the government.

Author Michael John Cruit has crafted a thrilling and suspenseful storyline that takes a look at the human race from a highly original and amusing perspective. The real triumph of this work is its perfect balance between the tensions of first contact and the humor of seeing ourselves reflected back in the eyes of an outsider. The relationship between the alien Observer and the one Earthling he trusts is a central focus, adding depth and emotion to the plot through some really well-achieved dialogue moments and close attention to making the aliens of the story relatable but recognizably different to us too. The narrative is extremely well-paced to take readers on a suspenseful journey as the characters face off against human surveillance technology and dangerous government forces, with new twists around every corner. But the story also raises intriguing questions about humanity, trust, and the consequences of our actions that will stay with you long after you close the book. Overall, if you're a fan of science fiction with a mix of thriller elements, then I would highly recommend Gesus, Marry and Joh as a captivating and unique reading experience.

Gesus, Marry and Joh by Michael John Cruit is one of the most unique science fiction books I have read. The cleverly woven plotline captures some of the serious issues facing society, such as climate change, pollution, healthy eating, and social responsibility in maintaining our environment. This made the story not only entertaining but also thought-provoking on these key issues. The author also utilized suspense to great effect; the twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat, and I could not wait to get to the subsequent chapters. The characters are also well-developed and very relatable. The vivid descriptions of events and emotions of the characters also helped to form a mental picture of what was happening. I cannot wait to read something else by this talented author.

Jesus, Marry and Joh by Michael John Cruit follows the story of an alien on a quest to rescue a captive friend while navigating Earth's complex landscapes and intelligence network. The story gains momentum through the conflict set up by an extraterrestrial visitor and the clash between alien and human technologies. The Observer, with knowledge limited to TV shows, finds himself plunged into a challenging and unfamiliar landscape, making him vulnerable to the prying surveillance technology that dominates human society.

The characters are dynamic, particularly the Observer and his Earthling ally. Their partnership drives the plot forward, adding layers of tension due to their mismatched technologies and cultural differences. The conflict between their foreign, advanced technology and the omnipresent, dangerous human surveillance creates an undercurrent of suspense, raising the stakes as the Observer gets into more complex situations. The novel cleverly explores the clash between human technology and alien advanced devices, illuminating the difficulties faced in a highly monitored and guarded society. Technology serves as both an asset and a risk, heightening the intrigue as the characters face not just human surveillance but also an array of lethal defenses. With a dash of humor and the complex interplay between the characters, Jesus, Marry and Joh presents a thought-provoking and exhilarating narrative against the backdrop of a suspenseful and high-stakes adventure. The descriptive prose and the superb world-building make it engrossing. Michael John Cruit's compelling tale examines cultural shock from a completely fresh perspective.
