    La Vieja guardia por John Scalzi (Karlstar)
    Karlstar: John Scalzi introduces the universe of the Colonial Union in this book. Similar in feel to Starship Troopers, in many ways.

After John's story in [b:Old Man's War|36510196|Old Man's War (Old Man's War, #1)|John Scalzi|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1509467059s/36510196.jpg|50700] and Jane's (to some extent) in [b:The Ghost Brigades|239399|The Ghost Brigades (Old Man's War, #2)|John Scalzi|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1403295928s/239399.jpg|18279845], this time around we get both of them. They're together now and raising Zoë (how's that for a complicated family), when they're tapped to head an entirely new colony planet Roanoke--with the first city named Croatoan. Also... why would they even agree to that?

I mean... come on. Either no one knows the history behind the names--in which case why in the world would they be using them--or they do--in which case why in the world would you choose that to name your new colony. Granted, they turn out to want it to be lost, but still. It's a bit annoying.

On top of that, you have all manner of plotlines that are brought up only to be ignored until they become necessary or to be dropped entirely. Native critters? A huge deal and then just sort of gone when things get tough. Consu tech? Only time they're mentioned in the entire story. 'Command mode'? Gone for a few chapters.

And for that matter, for a story with over 400 alien species ... I really don't know what any of them even look like. Other than Hickory and Dickory--who I managed to confuse in my mind with Humpty Dumpty and thus now look like anthropomorphic eggs forevermore. Also:


“She’s being a teenager,” I said. “New friends. New planet. New boyfriend.”

“Yes. Enzo,” Hickory said. “We feel deeply ambivalent about him.”

“Join the club,” I said.

“We can remove him,” Hickory said.

“Really, no,” I said.

“Perhaps later,” Hickory said.

“Rather than killing off Zoë’s potential suitors, I’d prefer the two of you focus on helping Jane find whatever it is that’s out there pawing on our perimeter,” I said. “It’s probably less emotionally satisfying, but in the grand scheme of things, it’s going to be more useful.”


On the other hand, there's lots of lovely scifi action and just enough bigger universe worldbuilding to keep me intrigued. I really want to know where the universe goes from here--despite this being the last book in the original trilogy.

Overall, probably my least favorite of the series thus far. But worth giving [b:Zoe's Tale|2102600|Zoe's Tale (Old Man's War, #4)|John Scalzi|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1301108028s/2102600.jpg|18280032] a look.


“Hickory, have you ever lied to me?” I asked.

“I do not believe you are aware of me or any Obin ever lying to you,” Hickory said.

“No,” I said. “I don’t believe I am.”


Hmmmm... ( )

A little slower then his other books but still good. ( )

John Scalzi hasn't failed me yet. All three books in this series so far have been gripping, stirring, exciting adventure stories with a thrilling edge of darkness. Even though he does not paint his alien characters in shades of black and white, he also does not flinch from demonstrating that some species of aliens are extremely dangerous, brutal, and willing to stop at nothing to murder and mutilate humanity. My only criticism is that an early plot-line dealing with a native threat on the colonized planet was completely dropped when the greater outside threat presented itself, and it retrospect it seems like a thread that should have been resolved or otherwise dealt with. As I understand it, his upcoming book, "Zoe's Tale", deals with the same time period but tells it from a different perspective, so that should be interesting. I look forward to reading that, and I'll definitely continue picking up everything he writes. ( )

Rather old fashioned I thought, although without the old fashioned habit of relegating half the human race to be charming housewives...... A good story but a bit thin. The actual process of starting a new colony doesn't seem to have interested him much, but it might have been better to skip over the detail rather than bring on [SPOILER] a whole race of intelligent alien savages just to make it seem more interesting - then vanish them and never mention them again. But I liked it - relaxing if a bit predictable. ( )

This volume displays much more sophisticated plotting than its predecessors and finally allows us to see the big picture of galactic politics. In doing so, Scalzi finally also reveals what he thinks about the super-aggressive militaristic Colonial Union. It's what I had been waiting for.

The book jackets variously describe Scalzi as "slick", "accessible" and "entertaining", assessments that I agree with. At this point in his career he had not tipped over into overly dialogue dominated pseudo screen-plays, either. Fun stuff. ( )
