really liked it
bookshelves: sci-fi
Read 2 times. Last read December 26, 2018 to January 20, 2019.

You know, I was going to give this 3 starts, and then I hit the ⅔ point, and the plot leveled up in interest.

Scalzi’s recent books are what I call “airplane fiction”: the perfect quick read for a flight. The plot moves along, the scenes and dialogue are generally snappy, and the whole thing just flows along. I tend to prefer “idea books” in sci-fi, but Scalzi finally got enough of those in play in the second half to earn this book more than 3 stars from me. Your mileage may vary.
