Descrição do produto

Hugo-award winning author, John Scalzi returns to his best-selling Old Man's War universe with The End of All Things, the direct sequel to 2013's The Human Division
Humans expanded into space...only to find a universe populated with multiple alien species bent on their destruction. Thus was the Colonial Union formed, to help protect us from a hostile universe. The Colonial Union used the Earth and its excess population for colonists and soldiers. It was a good arrangement...for the Colonial Union. Then the Earth said: no more.

Now the Colonial Union is living on borrowed time-a couple of decades at most, before the ranks of the Colonial Defense Forces are depleted and the struggling human colonies are vulnerable to the alien species who have been waiting for the first sign of weakness, to drive humanity to ruin. And there's another problem: A group, lurking in the darkness of space, playing human and alien against each other-and against their own kind -for their own unknown reasons.

In this collapsing universe, CDF Lieutenant Harry Wilson and the Colonial Union diplomats he works with race against the clock to discover who is behind attacks on the Union and on alien races, to seek peace with a suspicious, angry Earth, and keep humanity's union intact...or else risk oblivion, and extinction-and the end of all things.

Capa Interna

The Colonial Union's Defence Force was formed to save humanity when aggressive alien species targeted our worlds. Now Lieutenant Harry Wilson has an urgent new mission, as a hostile universe becomes ever more dangerous. He must investigate a sinister group, which lurks in the darkness of space playing different factions against one another. They'll target both humans and aliens, and their motives are unfathomable.

The Defence Force itself is weakening as its soldiers fall - without recruits to replace them. Relations with Earth have broken down and it will send no more troops, even as human colonies become increasingly vulnerable to alien attack.

Lieutenant Wilson and Colonial Union diplomats must race to keep the peace, seek reconciliation with an enraged Earth, and maintain humanity's unity at all costs. If they don't, it will mean oblivion, extinction and the end of all things.

2.0 de 5 estrelas Glad that's over with 7 de outubro de 2015
Por George - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
Old Man's War was a great read, not only because John Scalzi has a great writing style, but also because as we get older, it would be nice to be able to trade your old body for a new one. So it resonated with me, as I'm sure it did for you as well.

A couple of years ago, Scalzi tried something new. Publishing a book one chapter a week at a time. I was so starved for something new in OMW I downloaded the first chapter as I sat down to eat lunch. I was only half done with lunch when I finished reading the chapter. Dang, I thought, that was short. I thought the other chapters would be longer, but instead, many were shorter.

Still, I plugged along, spending 99 cents for short chapters, consoling myself that at least the plot was good. But as I neared the end, I wondered how Scalzi would wrap things up because there were a lot of loose ends. He didn't. He ended the book with a cliffhanger, which meant there was at least one more book to come out to finish the story. Had I known that before I started reading it, I would have been able to adjust my expectations. Instead, the whole experience left a bad taste in my mouth, as though I'd been cheated.

That book was The Human Division.

So now we get to the sequel: The End of All Things

Rather than being one complete book, it's 4 novellas sold as a book. The first novella reminded me of The Hobbit in that Scalzi painstakingly described the setting for pages and pages. The first time I read The Hobbit, I gave up after the first 50 pages because it was all a description of the shire, but there was no action. Boring described it. Fortunately, I gave the Hobbit another chance and the story picked up after about a hundred pages. So, in Scalzi's book, when the adventure began I settled in for a good read.

Which only lasted a few pages. Because that novella had just finished.

The other 3 novellas were written in much the same way.

The only good thing about finishing the book is that it wrapped up the cliffhanger from The Human Division.

But I'm done with Scalzi for the near future. I love his writing style, but I didn't like the way he jerked me around these last couple of years. I get the feeling he was done with the OMW arc a few years ago, but decided to cash on a couple sequels too many.

I'm not going to say I'll never read anything else he writes down the road, but I'll definitely read a number of reviews before I give another of his books a chance.

3.0 de 5 estrelas Disappointing end to a series. 25 de agosto de 2015
Por Josh - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Compra verificada
2.5 stars, really, but I'll give it 3 since it at least ties up loose ends from the other books. After having read, and thoroughly enjoyed, the other books in this series, I was eagerly anticipating the next installment. Unfortunately, The End of All Things is a misfire. The other books in the series gave a good mix of action and intrigue. They were fantastically written, compelling novels. Beyond the first point-of-view, the book becomes mired down in endless political posturing. The posturing itself could have been interesting, as can be read in something like the first few books of the Song of Ice and Fire books (sorry for the comparison to that insanely popular series, it was the first thing that came to mind). Instead, it is dull and disappointingly predictable. I felt like the ending was telegraphed way in advance. I also have tired at this point of how the myriad alien species are not really well described. They largely do not have their own personalities. They all reason like humans, with the same emotional makeup. Contrast that with the Amnion of Stephen Donaldson's Gap novels, and I think the missed opportunity in this regard is easy to see. I was able to overlook it in the previous books, but in this one, without the quality of the story to distract me, it seemed pretty glaring. I think this also stood out because so much of the novel is from the point-of-view of an alien. I think for fans of the series, it will provide some closure, but in a way I wish the book hadn't been written so I'd still be able to anticipate something awesome, and this was not it.

1.0 de 5 estrelas Depressing and very disappointed 30 de dezembro de 2015
Por Hugo Cortés - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
Absolutely the worst book in the series. I was expecting a completely different book, one with a large variety of science fiction elements and neck-breaking pace. Instead, what I got was a political thriller (that by itself is really good) with little sci fi elements and somehow predictable. It's also depressing the way Scalzi treats the most beloved characters in the series, they were transformed into mere vehicles of the narrative. Also the ending is just another Deus Ex Machina moment that makes you keep thinking "Really? Is that all?"

Also, the universe that JS created isn't explored any further, you are just left with what we got in the previous books.

I feel so disappointed

3.0 de 5 estrelas Mediocre, loosely coupled novellas 10 de maio de 2016
Por W. Lee - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
This novel in the series disappoints. First, it is quite obvious that it's a collection of novellas. They're tied together by one character and the Old Man's universe, but the result is not cohesive.

As other reviewers have noted, the novel has far more exposition and posturing than in the past. That reduced my interest.

The author has tried to explain this before, but I just don't see why Earth is the *only* source for soldiers. That's an unjustifiable restriction, I believe.

3.0 de 5 estrelas An unnecessary conclusion to a great series 2 de dezembro de 2015
Por Paige Ellen - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
And so it ends. John Scalzi's Old Man's War series comes, perhaps slightly limps to a close. The book is pure Scalzi and if you are a fan of his you will want to read this just for a sense of completion. Although, I don't think this was necessary, as "The Human Division" could have served as a fine closure to the series. It left this reader wanting more, and sometimes that is when it is time to let go. I think that Scalzi may have gone to the "Old Man's War" well once too often with this book. I also have to admit that, as with "The Human Division", this book was first published in serial form, with the complete volume coming after the serialization had run its course. This smacks of greed on the part of the publisher, in my opinion. While Stephen King did set a precedent with the serialization of "The Green Mile," he made it clear that this was an homage to one of his main influences as a writer, i.e., Charles Dickens. There is no sense of homage in the serialization of "The Human Division" nor in "The End of All Things."
I wish I could say that this book is full of the unexpected, but, for the most part, the characters are fairly predictable and Scalzi serves up a few twists, but not enough to justify a book of this length.
Let me be clear: I love John Scalzi and will continue to read whatever he publishes. I just found myself disappointed with the plot and the unfolding of the story in a way that really brings the readers of the series nothing new by means of creativity, character development or even a satisfying end to what began as a brilliant series. I would urge those who have not read the first three books in this series to go and read them. They are essential Scalzi. Unfortunately, this book is not. It is more Scalzi mailing it in while he comes up with his next work of genius.
