I have read it and it's not a satire or funny. It's SF plain and simple. Fantastic Fiction agrees with me. http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/h/...aders-plan.htm. Overdrive also agrees. http://search.overdrive.com/ti/e9788...on-earth-ebook Let's go for WorldCat as another source that says it's just SF. http://www.worldcat.org/title/invade...=brief_results

So unless someone can find a definitive source that says it's a satire, it's not and never will be.
From the WorldCat description (the page you quoted):

Quote:
... with stinging satire- ...
And a quote from the Literary Guild:

"A thriller packed with lust, laughs, adventure and murderous intrigue"

I'll second the Invaders Plan.
