Praise for The Collapsing Empire
"Provocative and unexpected." ―The Wall Street Journal
"Scalzi has constructed a thrilling novel so in tune with the flow of politics that it would feel relevant at almost any time." ―Entertainment Weekly, Grade B+
"Scalzi builds a fascinating new interstellar civilization in order to destroy it....[The Collapsing Empireis] amusing escapism full of guts and brains." ―Ars Technica
"Scalzi mixes science, history, and politics with sharp action and intriguing characters. Readers will be thrilled to take another wild ride across the universe with the author of the “Old Man’s War” series." ―Library Journal, starred review
"Fans of Game of Thrones and Dune will enjoy this bawdy, brutal, and brilliant political adventure" ―Booklist
"Scalzi continues to be almost insufferably good at his brand of fun but think-y sci-fi adventure." ―Kirkus Reviews
Praise for John Scalzi
“As much as Scalzi has the scientific creativity of Michael Crichton, he also has the procedural chops of a Stephen J. Cannell to craft a whodunit with buddy-cop charm and suspects aplenty–most of them in someone else’s body.” ―USA Today on Lock In
"If anyone stands at the core of the American science fiction tradition at the moment, it is Scalzi." ―The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction, Third Edition
“Plenty of action, great character development, vivid and believable world-building, and a thought-provoking examination of disability culture and politics. . . . Yet more evidence that Scalzi is a master at creating appealing commercial fiction.” ―Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on Lock In

I also appreciate that although, as a space opera, it covers a lot of (ahem) space, the number of characters is limited enough that I could follow all of them. I’m not as keen on books that go the Game of Thrones route, overstuffed with characters that don’t pay off until you’ve read all the books.

The story itself gets a C+. It's not super original, but it also doesn't get in the way of the reader enjoying it.Read more
