C'mon, John, either get back to writing or switch to infomercials. You're better than this.
Scalzi has basically taken a novel and released it as 13 sections (chapter it seems like) at a time. I've now read the first three chapters and while I'm enjoying them I don't plan to buy the rest.
That's partly because if I buy them as they are released, I forget what's going on between readings, so I suggest if you suffer memory lapses like me, you get them all at once and read them all at once (which has its own little niggle that you need to keep dropping out to "Home" on your Kindle to load up the next chapter). It also means I lose my emotional link to the players so I'm not as invested in finishing the whole thing.
But mainly beause they are expensive. That dollar adds up per-chapter and while Scalzi is a good writer, there are many equally good writers for less.
So, nothing against Scalzi per se, or his storyline it seems good, and I'll keep a look out down the track for the complete set in a single volume (and hopefully for about $6, that seems a good price to me).
When I can read an entire episode while waiting to get my teeth cleaned at the dentist they are WAY too short.
I don't mind paying for good books, and I don't mind authors splitting them up into multiple parts. But I don't like feeling I am paying for 20 minute shows on TV. I don't watch TV because I don't like 20 minute episodes of almost anything, even when it is free.
So either package these together in Novellas with multiple parts, or try something else. I understand that publishers and authors are experimenting with different ways to make money in the new ebook world, but this is not one that I will support.
Now this is actually pretty sad that my review is much more about the publishing model than the actual book, sorry.
If you loved "The Human Division #1: The B-Team" then you are going to love this one. All these are leading up to one big story and they tie in nicely together. I love these little series. All these episodes are entertaining and keeps you coming back for more. I can't wait to read #4.
