Goodreads Review: The Last Colony

The Last Colony (Old Man's War #3)The Last Colony by John Scalzi
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Far slower and more bureaucratic than the previous books. The Last Colony drops most of the military sci-fi trappings in favor of colonizing a new planet. It’s a neat idea, but the plot switches between the semi-interesting drama of colonizing a new world with defending that colony as part of a larger intergalactic plot. The former story fizzles out as the latter takes over, and it all wraps up a bit too easily. I still love Scalzi’s breezy writing and witty dialogue but this series has yet to reach the heights of the sublime first novel.
