The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was a lot of fun. Scalzi is really becoming one of my favorite writers, as his work is so readable yet so full of ideas. His science is plausible and he tells it in a way that an ordinary person can understand. He takes serious situations and balances them with snarky dialogue and humor. I wouldn't call his work comedy, but there is enough humor in it to keep it upbeat most of the time.
This is the beginning of a new series, and this first book shows such great promise. I'm definitely looking forward to the next one!
