This is a good book. However, it's not a good read without reading Old Man's War, The Ghost Brigade, and The Lost Colony. These Audiobooks are being blocked for sale in Australia. I searched the Net and I couldn't find CD versions for import.
So save yourself the heart ache and give this one a miss.
Interesting after listening to the Last Colony. Interesting perspective.
She was very good. She was able to do the adolescent voices without making them sound like they were 5 years old.
Yes. The story is bothWhitty and Smart.
I Loved the Last Colony and It was great to go back and witness the story for the POV of the most important person in the story, Zoe.
Zoe. But Hickory And Dickory are close seconds.
No because it was a little too long for that. but several long stretches.
I would love to see what happens to Zoe in the future.
OK, Scalzi writes readable (listenable) science fiction, stuff that is happily attended to while walking or sitting. And you, know, most series get really old. "Zoe's Tale" is not destined to be a classic, but it holds up well in his future history. I will always listen to another Scalzi. Not because it is great, but because it is fun.
the fight with the Consu
She made the little girl character sound REAL
The story was great. Only complaint is that narrators of different books pronounce things differently.
I did not think I would be interested in a teenage girl's point of view. It was very interesting. I am surprised it worked so well.
When she saved the general from Assasination.
The most memorable moment in Zoe's tale is when she meets the other intelligent life forms on her new planet Roanoke.
I have never heard her before but she does teenage angst with aplomb.
Enzo, enough said.
If you are a Scalzi fan and you have not read this one too, you're missing out.
through the eyes of a teen age girl.. who would have thought.
the series was good. one should read the complete series.
Zoe's tale is an excellent example of seeing a world from a different point of view.
I was a little frustrated listening to it at first because this narrator pronounced words differently than the original narration of the books from the rest of the series.
There are a couple of minor plot holes that don't totally mesh with the original story, but they are minor and don't conflict with the main story.
Overall I found this to be a wonderful and enjoyable audiobook.
No, its a rewrite of book 3 from a different point of view
Doesn't really stack up
You can skip this one. This book mostly focuses on what its like to be a teenage girl who is at the center of attention and has alien races who will risk their lives for her and all she wants is to be a normal bratty teenage girl with no responsibilities. If you like the Twilight series this book might be for you.
