In the cold months between the World Series and Spring Training I sat down beside my fire place and read Calico Joe. Alas, I wish it could have lasted until spring, but couldn't put it down until I had read through to the last page....Great story I highly recommend it!
I read book one in this series, Old Man's War, and would not recommend reading this book without having read it.
I've enjoyed everything that I've read by Scalzi, this one less than the others because it was all about a female sharing her feelings, but it was short, and not repetitive, unlike my wife or daughters when they want to share there “inner feelings”, and I gave it 3 stars, but only because I paid more attention.
P.S. If my wife ever reads this, (rather unlikely), I may have to apply for the “Audible Book Reviewers Protection Program”.
I love these books, and am sorry that this is the last one in audio format. Mr. Lane does a great job reading this Gabriel Du Pre mystery. Alas, there is a sequel to Cruzatte and Maria
But it hasn't been recorded, (is anyone listening, (no pun intended)). I expect I'll to read it.
I love this book, it was a great listen. Wil Wheaton did a great job as the narrator. I found myself laughing out load. I haven't enjoyed Sci-Fi like this since Heinlein. I will look for other books by this author.
