The Legend That Was Earth by James Hogan

Nobody in the book group disliked this book as much as I did, but only one person really liked it. There were chapters of really bad science infodump, continuity errors, lots of stupid people, and folks wandering around without pants.

Hogan sets this book roughly 12 years in the future, after the Earth has been visited by aliens from Chryse called Hyadeans. They ally with the US & Europe and begin domination by force. The Hyadeans have no imagination and some start finding the less-regulated and more-individual Earth a paradise. The protagonist is an idiot who gets accidently tangled up in the rebellion against the Hyadeans and US/Europe. The war escalates, more and more people get killed (some you like) and there's a deus ex machina ending. Ick.
