At first, the episodes seemed to have more depth, but the last two have simply been short, predictable chapters. With only a couple of episodes remaining, I'm not feeling as engaged with the characters as I've had in other Scalzi novels.
I just wish there was more "going on" in each episode.
I really appreciated this story, and actually went through and read it a second time once I stopped being surprised. You should pick it up.
Read if: You like to read prisoner escape narratives. You enjoy people surviving by their wits.
Skip if: You are going to be distressed by psychological torture.
Also read: The other books in this serial.
It was the shortest episode so far, but for me it was also the most engaging episode. With only five episodes left I worry that there might not be enough time to resolve everything, but Scalzi has a proven track record of awesome and I suspect those so called "filler" stories will turn out to be far more important than people thought.
Basically if all of these chapters had been combined into one boot in the traditional way, it would have been a short novel, priced around $8 to $10. Instead at a dollar per chapter, the price comes out a bit higher. I can't say that I haven't enjoyed reading them, and I don't feel ripped off, but the length compared to price is a bit off.
I like what John Scalzi is doing here, but I hope if he tries this again we get a bit more bang for the buck. All that said, I don't regret the buy at all. If you're a Scalzi fan, or a fan of The Old Man's War, you should absolutely but this collection.
If I was a writer I think at this point I would allow it to evolve into a whole new series. Perhaps one in which young people from Earth and the colonies can enlist and have their 'birth bodies' preserved while they serve. Perhaps the stories could follow several recruits from different places and perspectives.

Good stories, but its too bad you have to pay $1/chapter for the entire series!Published 16 months ago by JOHN P GAMERTSFELDEER
Well written look at a future our inheritors may face. Scalzi is able to pull you into his vision and make you care about his characters.Published on December 24, 2013 by Carol L Cash
I like the story but I don't like having to buy it buy the chapter! Won't do it again even for Mr. Scalzi!Published on December 21, 2013 by JD
As always, knowing John Scalzi is unafraid to sacrifice a well developed character keeps the suspense going. Read morePublished on October 10, 2013 by Amazon Customer
Another nicely written chapter in the saga, a little short, tho! Good character, well developed but I wanted there to be more!Published on October 8, 2013 by The Captain 230
all Of the parts are separate but flow together. Scalzi is one of the finest and brightest minds writing today!!!Published on September 7, 2013 by S. Miller
The Old Man's War was great. This is much thinner on plot and substance--and by that, I mean the whole series, not just this installment. Read morePublished on July 10, 2013 by Ridman
Its acturally a pretty interesting story but the individual installments are very short making the entire story kind of expensive and a pain having to wait so long then buy and... Read morePublished on May 10, 2013 by GrampieJ
