Publisher's Summary

Colonial Union Ambassador Ode Abumwe and her team are used to life on the lower end of the diplomatic ladder. But when a high-profile diplomat goes missing, Abumwe and her team are last-minute replacements on a mission critical to the Colonial Union’s future. As the team works to pull off their task, CDF Lieutenant Harry Wilson discovers there’s more to the story of the missing diplomats than anyone expected... a secret that could spell war for humanity.

The B-Team is a tale from John Scalzi's The Human Division, a series of self-contained but interrelated short stories set in the Old Man's War universe.

Listen to the complete edition of The Human Division, the fifth full-length book by John Scalzi in the Old Man's War universe.

    "THE B TEAM, By John Scalzi"

    Grabbed my interest from the start. Found it to be very interesting, Sci-Fi at its best. Filled with twists, turns, and plenty of thrills. A typical John Scalzi book! However, like many novellas, I would have liked it very much if it had been longer. An EXCELLENT Resd! -R.Wood

    "Good listen."

    If you can get past all the "he said", "she Said's". The storyline was quite entertaining.

    "Interesting concept"

    Liked the narrator and how he pulled the characters to life. The story line is good, nice to see the humans as the underdog. I'll read a few more in the series before final vote is cast.

    "Good book but choppy writing"

    Book was good overall by narration suffered from the large amount of Wilson said, Schmidt said, Wilson said, Schmidt said dialogue tags

    Story
    "Fun listen -"
    Any additional comments?

    This was a fun - pulpy - story with good narration and enjoyable characters. I am very Glad that I had just listened to Tor.com since the back story buried in that book made this one that much more fun. I will definitely be listening to the whole series but I'm going to try to pace myself to get the full "Serial Novel" effect.

    "Sci fi at its best"

    John Scalzi does it again with the Humane Division putting us back into the universe of The Old Man's War with a cast of characters that we can emphasize with and root for. Total Sci fi bliss.

    Story
    "Another great Scalzi"
    What did you love best about The B-Team?

    Fun, engrossing Scalzi book!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the humor combined with technical aspects... and, in this one, the individual dealing with politics of chain of command.

    Story
    "Just what you'd expect from Scalzi read by Dufris"
    Any additional comments?

    Loved the usual Scalzi humour of this story set in the same universe as the Old Man's War series, perfectly read, as usual, by Dufris.
