Reviews of Zoe's Tale (2008)

Review by johnafair (2009-07-11)
Although this book effectively retells the story from _The Last Colony_, it totally fails to be a wate of time.

Scalzi speaks with the voice of a teenaged girl quite believeably (allowing for the fact that I'm not a teenaged girl either) and the story of the Roanoake colonisation effort is subtley recast so that it's not (quite) just a regurgitation of that earlier book.

(This review refers to the 2008 version titled “Zoe's Tale”)
