Zoe's Tale af John Scalzi

    Matter af Iain M. Banks (grizzly.anderson)
    grizzly.anderson: In many many ways these are VERY different books, but in Zoe's quest to find a weapon/tool/solution to keep her colony from being wiped out, and her interaction with the Consu, I kept flashing to searches and wars among the various peoples and levels of the shell world in Matter.… (mere)

The last colony from Zoe's POV ( )
  jercox | Jun 2, 2021 |
Scalzi admits that this book arose from complaints about two plot holes in the previous volume of the series, giving us the same story from the perspective of the former protagonist's daughter. Initially this is boring because, despite a convincingly different (i.e. teenage girl's as opposed to her 90 year old father's) voice, the events described are just recapitulation. Fortunately, we fairly quickly move to significant events that we had no knowledge of from the prior book and the two major gaps in the story as told in the previous tale are well and truly filled in and we learn some more about the over-arching galactic political situation and the history of same.

If you liked the previous entries in the series you'll probably like this, as long as you get past the overly long start which adds nothing new. ( )

I've been a big fan of Scalzi ever since Old Man's War, but I was slightly worried that Zoe's Tale would be a some milking of The Last Colony, which is a POV change of that novel. I'm not entirely certain it was necessary, except for the fact that it develops what might have been a serious dues ex machina event and makes everything hunky-dory. It may sound as if I didn't like the novel, but that's plainly untrue. This was an excellent YA novel, and I have to admit I love the concept of an intelligent alien race without self-consciousness. The whole novel was solid and Zoe always had a strong voice. Even better, I never thought she was overblown or annoying or perfect. Well, for me, that's high praise for a YA heroine.
I will freely admit that I liked the first two novels best, but I see why this one was nominated for Hugo. ( )

I'll admit it. I thought this book was a waste of time. I really wanted to read the Human Division (the 5th book in the series) and didn't want to skip ahead.

I'm incredibly glad I didn't.

I loved this book. Scalzi is an artist with this book. It was fantastic. This book is entirely contingent on you having read the previous books in the series, especially the one directly before it (the Last Colony).

Highly recommend this series and this book. ( )

I liked how this book fleshed out Zoe's perspective. However, I ended up skimming large parts of the book as it just wasn't interesting. The parts that we didn't know anything about, like meeting the creatures in the woods and the Obin - those were fascinating. ( )

I wondered if it was very realistic to have a heroine that young be so clever and observant while spouting off with Scalzi's trademark sarcasm. Some readers might think that a brilliant and resourceful young Messiah of an alien race who Saves the Day with blatant Deus ex Machina has it a bit too easy. But Zoë's Tale isn't really about the clash of mighty empires or rescuing loved ones from monsters, exciting as those parts are — it's about Zoë. It's about that time in our lives after we've come to grips with how the world sees us but we are still not sure how we see ourselves. It's not about what you are, but finding out who you are. This whip-smart, often funny, and deeply moving novel portrays that journey of self-discovery to the satisfaction of adults young or otherwise.
