Review: The Last Colony

The Last Colony by John Scalzi

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



Enjoyed the read. It's quick and fairly painless, but I'd mapped out the entire storyline by the end of the first couple chapters, at least in broad strokes.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



This one deserves a rating with more flexibility. For concept I give it 4 of 5, for execution a 3 (and in parts a 2), and for the interview at the end, a 5.

It does an admirable job of pursuing the idea that an emergent intelligence may not operate by the same rules humans do. I'll likely add the next one to my list. I'd recommend it to anyone interested in AI or identity, but wouldn't recommend it universally.
