I love the whole multiple short stories in one book deal. Mostly all the stories are a good read. I recommend this for a seasoned Halo science fiction reader. I could imagine if you've never played the games and read the first 3 Halo novels this book may not make any sense. Fanboys/girls only.
Evo 2 is the same book as Evo 1 except for a single novella that was added to it that wasn't in 1. I rated it four stars because I'm a fan of the Halo world and single story or not I'm a sucker for more.
So this just had one story extra that was that in the first book. Apparently I don't read user reviews well. So yeah that happened. Anyways, pretty much all the stories are solid. Good read.
