Book Description

The fifth episode of The Human Division, John Scalzi's new thirteen-episode novel in the world of his bestselling Old Man's War. Beginning on January 15, 2013, a new episode of The Human Division will appear in e-book form every Tuesday.

 

Captain Sophia Coloma of the Clarke has a simple task: Ferry around representatives from Earth in an aging spaceship that the Colonial Union hopes to sell to them. But nothing is as simple as it seems, and Coloma discovers the ship she’s showing off holds suprises of its own...and it’s not the only one with secrets.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great story to follow! May 10, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    AWESOME SCI-FI!!!! This is a great story that gets deeper and deeper! Quasi-realistic future scenario based on the classic Sci-Fi Action story of the misinterpreted misfit hero, alien menace, future weapons and deep space warfare! Everything from Nanobots to battle frigate fights to super weapons and enhanced soldiers! This series has it all!!!! Great character development and dialogue, not going to reveal anymore, cause I you have to read each installment yourself! Also not going to write individual reviews for each series, get real amazon! hahaha! If you like great Sci-Fi GET ON THIS!

    2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed March 13, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    The writing is top notch but the excerpt is a disappointingly short chapter just like the rest of the features in the series. Not worth the $13 or so it would take to read the whole thing

    2.0 out of 5 stars Forever hopeful March 7, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    John Scalzi has done good work in the past - the Human Division series does not appear to be one. I keep buying the chapters hoping that they will get better. It is a good sales strategy. Works on your sense of hope. If it was published in a single book, you would not buy it.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Annoyed not disappointed October 9, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This is a serial. If people can't start at the beginning they should just be confused is my feeling. If they can't keep up...leave them behind or give them a summary the rest of us can skip. Great chapter otherwise. BTW No doubt if I was trying to write for a living I wouldn't be very impatient with my readers either

    5.0 out of 5 stars series back on track October 4, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I enjoyed the tone(sense of humor) of the tale. I also liked the characters, especially Wilson and the Captain. Featuring the Cubs winning the World Series was an added bonus, even if it is SF.
    After a couple of lackluster chapters this was a keeper!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Nice first half-ish September 12, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    First 5 episodes have been enjoyable. I like this episodic approach. Perfect way for a fickle reader like me to avoid buying a book I'll only read half of.
