  • An excellent follow up to the last colony

    So many questions after the last colony and this book answered them all. An outstanding read with emotionally engaging characters.

    This isn’t Book 4 it’s Book 3.5. The author is basically forcing you to reread Book 3 but from Zoe’s perspective. My assumption is that his publisher was pressuring him to put something out and he was suffering from writers block and as a result we were left with this garbage. It’s going to be awhile before I read anything by Scalzi again. What a waste of money!!!!

    When you tell your friends of this novel have them read the others for context of course. But I believe they will thank you,especially if they are young.
  • Good in its own right

    I admit to not caring enough about Zoe to understand why she needed a book. By the last chapter I did and it is one of the better books I've read in quite some time. I ended up caring about the characters more, becoming more emotionally invested in the story than expected (especially because it reflects the previous book). It is very well written and very few authors can do what John Scalzi has done with the story. I recommend it.
  • Zoe's tale....

    The book was a decent read unless you've read the previous book. I mean it's really the same story but told by the daughters POV. If it was half the price it'd be better. But full price for a retelling is a little steep....
  • Scalzi becomes a teenage girl

    Loved this story. I was a huge fan of Scalzi until I read Redshirts. I took a break after that until Zoe caught my interest again. Only after reading the notes at the end did I learn there were other parallel books to the story, so you don't need to read them to appreciate this tale. The best thing about it is the voice: its written in the first person of a teenage girl. It wasn't easy to capture the intelligence, courage and humor of the character, and still explore the implications of her connection to an alien race. As someone who works extensively with teenagers in my real life world, I found her voice to be incredibly authentic. Kudos to Scalzi!!
  • Another amazing book

    I loved this book. It seems to that each of the books in this series have just been better than the one before. Which is really hard to do, since each of the books is truly great in its own right. I loved reliving the events of The Last Colony from Zoe's perspective and learning more about such a critical character. I loved this book and the whole series and I hope John Scalzi will takes us there many more times in the years to come.
  • Zoe's Tail Another Perspective

    I real enjoyed this book. A few years ago I read the Old Man's War series and couldn't put them down. As I read Zoe's Tale I kept thinking that I've read this story before but not quite the same way. I really enjoyed the characters quirky banter and the development of the relationships with family and friends. If you didn't read the other books of the Old Man's War series before reading this book you will enjoy recognizing key ideas from the different stories as you explore the period and universe, from another perspective.
