Ric's Reviews > The Ghost Brigades
by John Scalzi (Goodreads Author)
Though there's a bit too much of 'explaining' the technology and the alien cultures for my taste (after several instances, I skimmed over the rest.), I do not consider this as diminishing the overall likeability of the book. The tone is more serious than its predecessor, an improvement IMHO; the funny scene setups can detract from the story flow.
I enjoyed the book. It's charm lies, I think, in its easy accessibility, the effortless prose and, perhaps, in not taking itself too seriously.
Three and a half stars.
