|I was super excited to get my hands on the latest John Scalzi book because I've really liked his previous stuff. Unfortunately while this book is fun I feel that the underlying concept is pretty weak... Its more of a toy boy than something which makes you think, which is a disappointment to me.
Don't get me wrong, the overall execution is good, but the book feels lazily plotted, much like a badly done Harry Harrison does. So, if that sort of thing annoys you, give this one a miss.
