Ok, the review - you know what you're getting with Scalzi, if you've read any of his books before. His characterisation is bang on, his stories are unpredictable but drag you in and grip you, and his prose is so easy on the eye and flowing that you suddenly find the dinner has burned, the cat hasn't been fed in a week and what the hell it's DARK now?
Bring on the rest of the book, I'm ready.
Instead of the United Federation of Plants and the Enterprise, this book sample has the Universal Union (dub U) and the Intrepid. The people aboard the ship have definitely noticed that bridge crew tend to survive away missions while the other team members get eaten, dissolved or meet their end in some other grisly fashion. These four chapters follow some new members of the Intrepid. Very quickly the new crew members discover that they are replacing people who have died as a result of away missions. And that the old hands aboard ship have learned to stay away from away missions.
This is a well written and edited sample of a larger book to come. John Scalzi has written Old Man's War, The Last Colony, Fuzzy Nation and other books. I will definitely buy this book when it comes out. Maybe not an e version, but I will buy it.
