Nothing. The book was the same story as The Last Colony, with very little new info
No, I should have read the reviews more carefully.
NO!!!! I can't stand the little girl whine. If I want to hear a teenage whine or fake upbeat I'll just call my niece. Ms Gilbert should listen to the other narrators in a series in order for the pronunciations to be consistent.
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.
Fan of the Amazon
A new story.
Having listened to Lost Colony, I know the story already and now that I'm 4 hours into Zoe's Tale (almost half-way), I haven't heard anything new. Even the dialogues are familiar.
The universe is good and the characters interesting. Would love to read more but really need new content
I am having a hard time not viewing this book as a cheap cash-in. Together with the very audible-subscriber-unfriendly episode releases of the B-Team, it seems the author has moved on from producing very entertaining novels - and I've enjoyed them all - to finding the best dollar/effort ratio. Too bad.
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.
