colleen the convivial curmudgeon (blackrose13) | 2974 comments Who is this John Scalzi fellow? I'm sure I've never heard of him before...

Mark < spoiler > spoilers < /spoiler>... or you'll be the next Red Shirt to die...

See, I do get to group reads sometimes :)

Actually listened to it on audiblebook when it came out a couple months ago. Loved it.

Not sure that actually counts as "get[ting] to group reads".


Just saying...

:P

Chris  (haughtc) | 2450 comments I mean, Scalzi wins in this group about every other month, so it wasn't a huge gamble.

Yeah...

I'm about ready to suggest making him ineligible for a nomination for awhile... *cough*

MrsJoseph *grouchy* (mrsjoseph) | 5312 comments I enjoyed this book so much! It wasn't as quite as good as Old Man's War but I had a swell time!

I need to correct myself. It's not the same as Old Man's War. But it was so much fun.


message 8: by Dawn, Dawnerys, Mother of Modding (new) - rated it 4 stars

Dawn (breakofdawn) | 860 comments I liked this a lot too! I agree with MrsJ. Not as good (or the same as) Old Man's War, but still fun.

I also listened to the audiobook.

And technically this is only the 3rd Scalzi we've read... We just chose them all in a row. Probably my fault, I got on a Scalzi kick!


Jenny (jennyc89) | 63 comments I can't wait to dive into this on Audible once I'm done with current read. Scalzi is easily one of my favorite authors.

My Review (view spoiler)

It was so good, I haven't found anything since that grabs my attention in the same way. That damn Scalzi magic!

You know what really worked for me?

Behind the Throne
After the Crown Bk#2

OMG. After reading Scalzi and Wagers...I can't get in to fit in anything!

I'm slumping, too!
