Comments on End of All Things #1 – John Scalzi
John has really improved on his Old Man’s War series of novels and short stories. Among these is the End of All Things storylines, written in four volumes, which I like reading on Amazon Kindle e-reader. First off, really like the writing style. Sarcastic, fast-paced. Similar to Andy Weir’s The Martian in terms of style and interest. Kept me going throughout.
Story & Plot:
Getting hired as a pilot is one thing. But being kidnapped and having your brain transferred to a computer and flying a ship is something else!
The bad guys with a traitor politician (no surprise there) want to get rid of the Colonial Union. With secrets from the senator, this is an easy task. But our hero is a computer programmer as well as a pilot, and devised a way of circumventing the computer controls and makes his escape. But he’s still a brain in a box!
Conclusion: Great short novel, a fun read. Can’t wait for the next one!
