Sam Kinnison is a geek, and he’s totally fine with that. He has his horror movies, his nerdy friends, World of Warcraft – and until Princess Leia turns up in his bedroom, he doesn’t have to worry about girls.
Then Sam meets Camilla. She’s beautiful, friendly and completely irrelevant to his life. Sam is determined to ignore her, except that Camilla has a life of her own – and she’s decided that he’s going to be part of it.
Sam believes that everything he needs to know he can learn from the movies ... but now it looks like he’s been watching the wrong ones.

First of all, this review will come from a point of view of another bibliophile. It's been a tough time for me to read, I know that I should've adjust my schedules but some things just came out in a delayed way. Nevertheless, I have my cousin to save me on reading it and share what she felt on this book.
*Note : Whatever you read on this part is already from another point of view.
I'm very glad that my cousin shared me this book. The moment that I've read the synopsis, I've been very curious on getting to know more all about it. It seems very hypnotizing and captivating. A guy who can't help himself from falling in love with a girl who seems close enough to perfection, all I was thinking was that I should get a grab and read this book.
Life in Outer Space is not just about falling in love and denying the emotions that the characters felt. It's more than that. Sam and Camilla are more than that. The book interprets a very likable and unique kind of friendship. It displays from the very start of the book how Sam is attached to his friends, at how much he value their friendship. Sam does not care whether they are not a famous kind of group on their school. Because what is definitely important thing about friendship - staying close enough and face the problems with them. I adore how the author naturally writes those words, those parts in every characters.
Enters Camilla, a highly attractive and strange lady at the core. I just find myself laughing everytime she suggests a task on Sam just to make him happy. I loved her uniqueness in every single way. Even though her parent are also separated, she never let her sadness takes all of her life. She learn how to move on with her life and keeping her heads up for the people that she loves.
The story is narrated on the point of view of Sam, a geek and should I say an avid fan of World of Warcraft and gruesome movies like a zombie themed ones. Reading his story feels like being inside a young man that is deeply tempted and drowning with curiosity. I adore how Melissa Keil wrote such a hilarious story about love and friendship.
It's very sweet and funny at the same time. Life in Outer Space shows how can a guy solve a mindful of problems when it comes to girls. Overall, the book depicts an all-embracing theme of friendship and love. It also has a unique capability of laughing your ass off while reading this book. The emotions of the characters are highly addicting and mysterious. You won't stop to read it until you reach onto the conclusion how much Sam can proclaim his feelings for Camilla.
* Last Note : This is the end of her point of view
