Aliens who thought they were the only sentient life in the universe arrive on Earth.

The narrator is one of the aliens and the author does an excellent job of conveying an alien point of view, although it does mean the reader sometimes has to work hard to "translate" it. However, the only culture the aliens look at to understand such Earth concepts as politics, marriage, and religion is American. ( )
