Not a bad story, but the same as the lost colony
This looked more like a writers research that was eventually published but should have been omitted
Naturally I listened to this series out of order but thoroughly enjoyed it. He continues to surprise me with how attached I get to his characters.
The narrator is great, but I have an issue when they change how names are pronounced in a series, so that was the only reason it got 4 stars instead of 5.
Scalzi's ability to infuse humor, romance, angst and fundamentally human emotions into brilliant adventures is what makes him one of my favorites. I loved this so much, I had one of Enzo's poems read at my wedding. This is a strong follow up and complement to the rest of the old man's war series thus far. Hope you love it as much as I think you will.
Not the most exciting book in the series. There's some new info, but mostly it recaps The Last Colony from the point of view of Zoe. It's not necessary, but it does round out the story.
The performance as a whole was good but the narrator mispronounces a large number of the character names and it is incredibly frustrating
Giant Insects Will Rule the World!
I have bought several books by the author, and I will definitely buy more. Scalzi is a great storyteller.
I am ready to listen to the next book in this series.
The audiobook performance was excellent.
No. Not every good book necessarily needs to be made into a film.
This book should have been interspersed as chapters in the previous novel of the series. As it is, it feels like I paid twice for the same story.
Complete rehash of the previous book, very little new information and the information that was new was irrelevent to the rest of the series.
I dont know who to put the blame on, but its really frustrating to listen to a book series that changes narrators. I was willing to accept that the character voices had all chaned, but you can't change narrators and change pronounciations of EVERYTHING and EVERYONE, especially in SciFi where alien races and their names don't have a pronounciation guide. I spent most of my time listening to this book trying to figure out what/who this new narrator was talking about.
No. John Scalzi style of writing is impossible to listen to. Every line of every conversation starts or ends with 'he said' or 'she said'. Even one word sentences. You can't listen to he said she said he said she said he said, ad nauseum.
To date every story be John Scalzi has this fault. When reading in print I guess I don't see the he saids she saids. Listening, sorry.
Covers just the section the description says - no more no less - entire story contained by The Last Colony
She pronounces everything differently than the narrators of the other books. Had to stop and think a few times about what they were actually describing.
