Turning into one of my favourite authors, I liked this. Just the right length to listen to on a car or train journey. Really liking this series,
I love a funny story that doesn't take itself too seriously, but I can get caught up in a good mystery or a romance too. And of course I feel obligated to pay my respects to the classics, no matter how sleepy some of them make me.
Even though it's less than 40 minutes long, it still had enough interest to make me feel invested in the characters and their survival.
This short, tense installment is written in the form of an audio transcript, and has a bit of a horror theme to it. It works all right, though you could skip it if needed since it doesn't involve the same characters as the first installment.

yes. Scalzi and Dufris have better stuff published. Dufris isn't the problem here.
Yes, but I'll try to be careful how I pick.
This book although claiming to be part of a series did not have any of the characters from the first episode. It could be from a series, since it doesn't stand on its own like it claims to in the "flyleaf" of the purchase page. Its length is that of a "short-short", but it lacks both an ironic or unexpected twist that a good example of that style / genre should have. "Walk the Plank" lacks the wit and skill that one can see in nearly every short story by Saki, for example. I utterly disappointed in this 40 minutes lost of my life. Audible offered to take it back, but I paid money not a credit, so it's not even worth that effort. I plan to give episode 3 a try: it is projected to be longer so maybe Scalzi can put a story out there that at least shows as much respect for the audience as episode 1.
I was expecting better stuff because the first episode was really better and could have been followed up with something closer good if not actually excellent. The story has no closure. Sure, the audience knows what happened to a number of characters, but none of the questions for the colonists are answered. I am trying to avoid spoilers here, so I cannot be more specific.

Yes, While short it has all that's needed to add to the overall narrative
The way he conveys the emotion of the scene
I recommend the Audible edition -- the narrator adds great atmosphere and tension to the all dialogue episode. Even though it's short, it stands alone as an emotional and fascinating story.
5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
Episode one had a lot of interesting events in it... that would happen in any "TV Show", but the second episode is talking about something different and has no mention of the first episode's events.
as a 39 minutes book, it wasn't bad, you get to know some of the weird actions that occur and start to think "Whats going on?", but that wouldn't do until you read the next books.
So overall it was ok.
Its really hard to review a less than an hour book.
Tell us about yourself!
Good start but it leaves you hanging, like it is supposed to. Dont know where it is going but eager for the next installment.
Wow. This is the darkest thing yet in Scalzi's OMW universe. We all knew life on extrasolar colonies was hard, but wow......
I thought this might be interesting and bought the 1st. one in series. The 2nd. made no sense to me and it is much to short. The story doesn't tie in with the 1st. book No story anywhere. This is not for me.
