Review: John Scalzi’s The Last Colony

The Last ColonyAfter struggling through Delany, this was more my speed. I’ll have to go back and read The Ghost Brigades to complete the trilogy.

Check out my review

I’m Not Getting It

Im confused! Am I a RAT?

I'm confused! Am I a RAT?

About two weeks ago, I started reading Samuel R. Delany’s Stars In My Pocket Like Grains Of Sand. I’d read many high-praise reviews before picking up the book and was looking forward to my lunch time ritual of getting in 20 – 30 pages. But…

This was a very tough read. I was only able to finish the first two chapters. I told y’all before that I am a hard-scifi type of person. I knew about 5 pages into the read that this was not something I normally take up. By the end of the 2nd chapter I was exhausted. And it took me two weeks to get there. I know I promised an extensive review, but I can’t even do that justice. So, I’ll close out with I tried.

For my next book, I’m diving back into familiar territory: Scalzi’s, The Last Colony. I read “Old Man’s Tale” about a year ago and I am skipping over “The Ghost Brigades”. I hope that isn’t an issue for story continuation.

Maybe I’ll try another Delany book in the future…
