Descrição do produto

Following the events of The Last Colony, John Scalzi tells the story of the fight to maintain the unity of the human race.

The people of Earth now know that the human Colonial Union has kept them ignorant of the dangerous universe around them. For generations the CU had defended humanity against hostile aliens, deliberately keeping Earth an ignorant backwater and a source of military recruits. Now the CU's secrets are known to all. Other alien races have come on the scene and formed a new alliance—an alliance against the Colonial Union. And they've invited the people of Earth to join them. For a shaken and betrayed Earth, the choice isn't obvious or easy.

Against such possibilities, managing the survival of the Colonial Union won't be easy, either. It will take diplomatic finesse, political cunning…and a brilliant "B Team," centered on the resourceful Lieutenant Harry Wilson, that can be deployed to deal with the unpredictable and unexpected things the universe throws at you when you're struggling to preserve the unity of the human race.

Being published online from January to April 2013 as a three-month digital serial, The Human Division will appear as a full-length novel of the Old Man's War universe, plus—for the first time in print—the first tale of Lieutenant Harry Wilson, and a coda that wasn't part of the digital serialization.

Capa Interna

For years the Colonial Union has protected its citizens from the dangerous universe around them. But the people of Earth now know the ugly truth. The Union deliberately kept Earth as an ignorant backwater - and as a source of recruits for its war against hostile aliens. Now, other alien races have formed a new alliance against the Union. And they've invited the incensed people of Earth to join them.

Managing the Colonial Union's survival will take all the political cunning and finesse its diplomats can muster. And Harry and his team will be deployed to deal with the unexpected - for failure is unthinkable.

3.0 de 5 estrelas This is a volume not a complete novel. 21 de maio de 2013
Por Michael Haspert - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
I enjoyed reading Scalzi's humorous pacing and smart-assed aliens but my joy diminished as I watched the pages-remaining shrink until I finally realized that this was not going to wrap up in one book. It ends, for one sense of the word, like one of the serialized chapters. Furthermore,the end came even more abruptly than I had expected. I got to it and learned that the remaining pages were an extra, not a continuation of the story except in the most tangential sense.

I had skipped the serial method of delivery because I wanted to be able to read through to a conclusion and because I did not want to have one story split into 14 titles on my kindle. So I guess I am still ahead if this is volume 1 of 3, or whatever it turns out to be.

I wish it would have been clear before I bought. This seems so near the border between an honest miscommunication and sleazy marketing that it is irritating.

3.0 de 5 estrelas Skip it 13 de abril de 2017

My evaluation: skip it. I tell people to pretend that Old Man's War ended at book 3. Read book 4 if they really want to revisit it and clear up a couple things but 1-3 is a complete series, is very awesome, and they should stop there.

Books 5-6 don't really carry the story forward. And I can't help but think Scalzi stopped taking the series seriously. Seems like there are more joke-aliens and silly scenarios and he's just "having fun with it", which is fine if I'm reading Terry Pratchett's Discworld series which is meant to be a parody to begin with but it makes for a disappointing continuation of the previously serious Old Man's War.

3.0 de 5 estrelas Scalzi writes another fascinating book... but forgets to put the ending in! 22 de dezembro de 2013
Por Doxycycline - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Compra verificada
John Scalzi is one of my favorite authors writing today. He writes novels that manage to be both funny and thought-provoking at the same time. The Human Division, set in his "Old Man's War" universe, is one of his most recent works and he approached this one in a novel (Har!) way. He wrote each of the chapters of this novel as a standalone short story and this publication combines all of the short stories into a single narrative. In his introduction, he notes that when he was doing this, he was carrying out something of an experiment to see how this would go. The result really is a series of short stories but fortunately the short stories all work together so each short story ends up advancing the overall story line.

Unfortunately, however, Scalzi simply neglected to provide an ending to the novel. Much of the novel is devoted to describing the various ways in which unknown actors are attempting to sabotage a peace process and a number of other diplomatic initiatives. Suspense is very skillfully built up until the reader is simply aching to know who the unknown actors are and what their motives are... and then the novel simply ends.

Ordinarily, I would give this book 5 stars but this Hideous Sin forces me to deduct two stars (at least!) from the rating. Fortunately, Scalzi has not committed this Terrible Deed in his previous works. If you're curious about John's Scalzi, and I think you should be, you should check out his previous works such as Old Man's War and Redshirts in which he positively shined.

5.0 de 5 estrelas like one woman threatening Lt 26 de março de 2017
Por JM Wilson - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Compra verificada
The Human Division (2013) by John Scalzi is an okay read. The title of the book is mentioned on page 369. All of the captains in this book are women. Women threatening men, like one woman threatening Lt. Harry Wilson with death, seems standard operating procedure in this series, or in Scalzi’s writing.

I’ve read a handful of Scalzi’s other books like Agent to the Stars (2005), Fuzzy Nation (2011), Redshirts (2012), and Lock In (2014), The End of All Things (2015). All of them were good, entertaining, but they didn’t knock my socks off like Old Man’s War did.

If you’re going to read one story by John Scalzi, I recommend you read Old Man’s War (2005). It’s one of my top five favorite military science fiction adventure stories. The story is told first person, past tense, from protagonist John Perry’s point of view.

Starship Troopers (1959) (not like the movie) by Robert A. Heinlein is the book that got me started in sci-fi adventures, and has remained one of my top five favorite military science fiction adventure stories for decades. The Forever War (1974) by Joe Haldeman, Armor (1984) by John Steakley, and Ender’s Game (1985) by Orson Scott Card, round out my top five military sci-fi adventure stories.

If you like any of the above you might also like Jack Campbell’s The Lost Fleet series, Taylor Anderson’s Destroyermen series, Andre Norton’s Star Soldiers, Andy Weir’s The Martian, or Frank Herbert’s Dune. Other sci-fi and fantasy authors I like include Douglas Adams, Isaac Asimov, Paolo Bacigalupi, Arthur C. Clarke, Earnest Cline, Suzanne Collins, Abe Evergreen, Terry Goodkind, Hugh Howey, Robert Jordan, George Martin, Larry Niven, Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson and J.R.R. Tolkien.

4.0 de 5 estrelas And the ending is...? 15 de maio de 2013
Por Karl Katzke - Publicada na Amazon.com

Note: Slight spoiler.

OK, we've got another Old Man's War novel! Great! It's a serialized novel, which is a neat new thing, which incentivizes coherent beginnings and endings to volumes. Although some of us who like their novels, even if they read like collections of short stories, to be in one chunk, because we read it straight through in one sitting. So we wait for the book edition to come out. Also great! Except that it's an unsatisfying read because there's all this awesome intrigue and problem solving and IT DOESN'T GO ANYWHERE EXCEPT A POTENTIALLY EARTH-SHATTERING KABOOM. It's like there's another story that was supposed to wrap up all of the plot lines that got started, and it got left out in a giant editing mistake.

So, great story, great universe, I loved some of the lines, and this is very much the "New" (post-Fuzzy) Scalzi who lets his sense of humor out and isn't trying too hard to become an established sci-fi writer. But, one star off, because Scalzi accidentally the.

(Yes, that was on purpose.)
