One More Book Reccomendation

Check out The Android’s Dream by John Scalzi.  The book is a witty, entertaining, creative, and fresh science fiction novel.  I’m reading now for the third time, and laughing just as much as I did the first time.  Its characters are as endearing as its plot is rich.  This is what some reviewers think.

“What I liked about The Android’s Dream, apart from the engaging characters and action that are a hallmark of the author’s work, was the way it all built up to its punchline… I’m convinced that this book was written from the punch line backwards to the beginning, which is the only way all the disparate elements could have tied together so well at the end.” — Ernest Lilley, SFRevu.com

“[A] swashbuckling satire of interstellar diplomacy… With plenty of alien gore to satisfy fans of military SF and inventive jabs at pretend patriotism and self-serving civil service, Scalzi delivers an effervescent but intelligent romp.” — Publisher’s Weekly
