it was a pretty fast read
on May 30, 2015
I picked up this book as my first John Scalzi work. Since it is only a novella, it was a pretty fast read. It starts off a bit slow in the beginning because there's a fair bit of world-building that needs to happen, but it doesn't drag out too badly. Then things start getting interesting, but since it's only a novella there's not much more to say without spoilers. I liked it because Scalzi basically build a world from scratch, but still manages to work in plot twists that are surprising but still within the rules that were only just laid down.
Good enough for me to start to explore more of Scalzi's work. Not quite good enough for me to get in a hurry to do so. (hence 4 stars)
