A fun entry in the story, though to me it felt a bit like filler -- I was hoping for it to move a bit faster, I guess, and I wasn't impressed by the totally unsubtle recaps of earlier episodes. It felt bitty and not so clever.

Still, the actual story is interesting and it's a good bit of Scalzi's writing in other ways.read more

The fifth installment for the Human Division brings us the crew of the Clark and what their status is after previous events. It took a bit to figure where this was heading, but at the end it all made sense and helps keep the story moving forward. The suspense wasnt enough to warant 4 stars, but a strong 3.5.read more
