It's been a long time since I've read a good sci-fi novel, and this one sure did hit the spot.
In fact, it was so delicious I gobbled it up in one sitting, and I wouldn't say no to seconds. Probably going to go get the sequels tomorrow. Man, there's nothing in the world like good sci-fi. In fact, I wish I'd never read it, because then I'd get to read it again for the first time. Great concept, great execution. Extremely solid first novel. I've been reading Scalzi's blog for years, but I've never read any of his fiction. Why didn't somebody slap me upside my head? I now want to read everything he's ever written. This is my kind of shit.
