Descrição do produto

How do you tell your part in the biggest tale in history?

I ask because it's what I have to do. I'm Zoe Boutin Perry: A colonist stranded on a deadly pioneer world. Holy icon to a race of aliens. A player (and a pawn) in a interstellar chess match to save humanity, or to see it fall. Witness to history. Friend. Daughter. Human. Seventeen years old.

Everyone on Earth knows the tale I am part of. But you don't know my tale: How I did what I did — how I did what I had to do — not just to stay alive but to keep you alive, too. All of you. I'm going to tell it to you now, the only way I know how: not straight but true, the whole thing, to try make you feel what I felt: the joy and terror and uncertainty, panic and wonder, despair and hope. Everything that happened, bringing us to Earth, and Earth out of its captivity. All through my eyes.

It's a story you know. But you don't know it all.

Muito bom. O autor retoma os acontecimentos de The Last Colony, mas de um ponto de vista diverso, inclusive completando lacunas da narrativa anterior. Esplendido!

3.0 de 5 estrelas "The Last Colony" as re-told by a 50 year-old male teenage girl 27 de agosto de 2015
Por Pope Splendiferous VII - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
I am usually very careful about sequelized sci-fi, because of the general tendency for authors to flog their respective dead horses past the point that they've become unrecognizable horse-burger. I'm fairly new to Scalzi, I like his books that I've read, and I've never had that problem with him before, so I let my guard down. Unfortunately.

Half of my enjoyment of sci-fi revolves around plotting. So for Zoe's Tale, half of my interest was dissipated from the get-go. I had *just* read The Last Colony, so everything was quite fresh in my mind. If I'd had a year or two between the two readings, my feelings about this book would be different. I understand I could have probably just read the jacket blurb and saved myself some trouble; that was my mistake.

As for the other half of what I enjoy in a science fiction novel (writing technique, etc etc), IMO the protagonist sounds like a fifty-year old man pretending to be an extremely intelligent 16 year-old girl. I know that sounds a little harsh, but I think Mr Scalzi just plainly missed the mark he set for himself. The bantery style of interaction Zoe has with the people around her was fun and funny, until it became tedious. I like my witty banter in sips, I guess, not chugs.

Bottom line, if you like the Old Man's War universe, and if you haven't read The Last Colony in awhile, you should enjoy this book. If you try to inhale the series like I have, this book will probably be a disappointment.

Now I have to go over and give a belated 5 stars to Old Man's War to balance my karma.

Por johnzero - Publicada na Amazon.com

Zoe's Tale, the 4th book in this series, tells the story of the same events as the 3rd book in the series, but from the point of view of a specific character, the Zoe of the title. It's an interesting idea, but the Old Man's War series is not Rashomon, and while Scalzi writes serviceable sic-fi military, he's no Kurosawa.

Since we already know the story and how it unfolds, this book would only work if Scalzi was able to get us far enough inside the character that we learn something remarkably new about the story through her, or something remarkable about her. And he doesn't. Part of this is due to the fact that Zoe is a teenage girl, something Scalzi is not and never was, and despite his claim that women helped him get the voice right, it doesn't ring true. Of course, I was never a teenage girl either, but it's hard for me to believe that a teenage girl would just HAPPEN to sound so much like the other main characters that Scalzi has created. Noble, sarcastic, loyal, resourceful.. she seems like one of his soldiers with a boyfriend.

Besides that, too much telling, not enough showing, a common problem with this author and the genre in general, but it's more of a issue this time since we already know what we are going to be told.

Save your money.

4.0 de 5 estrelas Satisfying Completion to The Last Colony 5 de agosto de 2016
Por Michelle - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Livro de bolso Compra verificada
Much of this book is a repetition of the original story in The Last Colony. Since you may already know that, I will attempt to avoid more disclosures that could be spoilers. While you many know the past, you start right away seeing things from her perspective. She is a teenage girl right out of 1960's Iowa, pure and simple, living in idyllic Huckleberry. How she became that girl is glossed over, as it is in previous works. One would expect a more cautious and wary personality from what we know of her.

Here she is. You learn the backstory first. This young girl has some reason to be jaded or suffering from a sense of victimhood, but is happy and well adjusted to life with her odd parents. Dad is an ancient American, but not as ancient by a few hundred years as he needs to be for this story. Formerly a modern warrior himself he would be capable of wiping out the entire colony personally. Her mom is an artificially created human who sprang full grown into life as an elite warrior, capable of laying low entire Seal teams and dad. How does Scalzi make them loving and caring parents modeled from the days of Leave It To Beaver? I don't know. He sort of slips into it in his previous books, but it makes sense in Scalzi's Old Man's War series is as curious a blend of political corruption and idealism triumphant as you would ever read and believe. These people belong in that universe as he pulls that off again. They all must be from Iowa. And the two alien bodyguards? Bodyguards who would easily kill everyone she knows, including her mother, to keep her from any harm and are the representatives of a powerful alien race that worships her. The threat of displeasing her keeps them in line, barely. Now, you may wonder how any adventure could come to a girl surrounded by such an array as this. You don't know teenage girls.

From a teenage girl's point of view of her life on the Last Colony of Roanoke you have: intelligent and dangerous pet alien monsters, slobbery dog, benign neglectful parents with just the right touch of mature wisdom, boys, girls, boys and girls again, politics, an alien planet complete with more aliens, and one other revered meta, keeping important secrets from the adults. You have to love that last one, from Tom Sawyer to Harry Potter, untold secrets are where the drama is.

There's a story for you. Yet you still believe she is just your average middle class 1960's midwestern American girl with an iPad.

She is immediately thrust into an adventure from her agraian life right into the rigors of colonizing an alien planet. Typical of a teenage girl, she discovers the terrible secret of the the mission before her parents, the leaders of the colony. Not by much, but a coup none the less that begins the story of how she and her friends are working their way to the same conclusion of the story as her parents and the rest of the colonists. The story is about her, her female and male friends and how life with the powerless develops parallel to the powers-that-be. She eventually becomes the story and the proud progeny of her parents. Although she's not, really. You may not notice that until you think about it.

She is believable to me in the context of the story, There are some jerks and stops as the story gets started, but then Scalzi has to make this work and he does.

Zoe is sort of like a midwestern Podkayne. The similarities between the two jumped out at me as I started this book. Not that the stories are anything alike other than teenage girl heroines written by male writers. But I think she is the teenage girl men who like women think of, when they are not designing killer aliens and enhanced humans with neat hardware to deal with them.

Definitely worth the read and completes The Lost Colony nicely.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Second best would have been for the two books to be ... 22 de outubro de 2015

The main problem I have with this book is that it's mostly a retelling of an existing book with a different narrator. In someways I would have preferred Zoe as the only narrator. Second best would have been for the two books to be merged into one with the view point swapping back and forth. But we have what we got. It's still a really good read. The main problem I had, is that because the previous book established the narrative and timeline, I found myself trying to think back to it at a couple points in this book where things didn't quite want to "match up" in my head. I'm sure Scalzi was probably kicking himself at a couple points where he felt he needed to expand Zoe as a character but didn't have much to work with given the previous novel... he went ahead and did it anyway which gave him enough for this to be a novel and not a short story, but at some expense of making the whole thing seem a bit tacked on IMHO.

2.0 de 5 estrelas Worst book from John Scalzi 12 de março de 2017
Por Amazon Customer - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
The Last Colony was a great book, with a great story.
Zoe's Tale try to mine milk from that, failing spectacularly.
This adds nothing new to the story, Zoë is most of the time alienated about what happens around her, thinking only on her friends and boyfriend.
I do feel a little cheated here, I was expecting to see more on what happened in the Conclave and between her and the Consu, we got a last chapter with a little bit of it like an afterthought from the author.
I strongly suggest that people skip this book, I'll read the last 2 books, and other books by John Scalzi, this one must just be his worse work. (less)
