I have not read Mr. Scalzi before but decided to try him out when one of his books was on sale, because they always speak so highly of him on Writing Excuses.
Comedic genius, great pacing, and a knowledge of science and bureaucracy combine to provide a superior read.
Wil Wheaton's masterful narration was a joy, though I wanted to mock his pronunciation of something I forgot what, transported as I was by his storytelling.
Well done all.
This was an average book, nothing special about it. John Scalzi is not for me. I don't understand why people love Wil Wheaton so much, because I didn't think there was anything extraordinary about his narration.
Will Wheaton is second to none when it comes to narrating and the story here will have you intrigued to the end. I'm definitely going to check out more books from this author.
I enjoyed the characters and overall story of this book, but I feel that the story was 50% plot/character building and 50% intricate, tech-speak, and mostly unnecessary detail that would cause a loss in momentum and made it hard to follow the story, especially in audio form. That said, under all the fluff was a very interesting and action packed story.
