    The people of Earth now know that the human Colonial Union has kept them ignorant of the dangerous universe around them. For generations the CU had defended humanity against hostile aliens, deliberately keeping Earth an ignorant backwater and a source of military recruits. Now the CU’s secrets are known to all. Other alien races have come on the scene and formed a new alliance - an alliance against the Colonial Union. And they’ve invited the people of Earth to join them. For a shaken and betrayed Earth, the choice isn't obvious or easy.

    What would have made The Human Division better?

    Removing the "...said" at the end of nearly every piece of dialogue.


    Would you ever listen to anything by John Scalzi again?

    I've listened to two others (Android's Dream and Fuzzy Nation), both great books.


    What three words best describe William Dufris’s voice?

    Complacent, unmotivated, telling


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I nearly stopped listening due to the redundancy of the dialogue. The sarcastic wit and tongue and cheek humor were missing.


    Any additional comments?

    Editing would have really helped. I realize this was a combined serial story, but the writing was so amateur it was laughable. I'm hoping for better luck with Old Man's War.
