    Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. Life couldn’t be better…until Andrew begins to pick up on the facts that (1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces; (2) the ship’s captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations; and (3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.

    Story

    John Scalzi tries to write a meta-self help book on how he chose to be a better writer. The actual book falls short of his hopes. Parts of the story are amusing, and the concept is fun. However, the poor dialogue and atrocious plot holes prevented me from enjoying what the author was trying to achieve. I chose to listen to this book because of its high ratings as well as being read by Wil Wheton. Wil did not have much direction in this reading (as compared to others I have listened t) All the characters came out sounding angry or exasperated. I feel like it was a bait-and-switch.
