book review: agent to the stars

I read John Scalzi’s Agent to the Stars on my new replacement ereader (my last one got lost in Nanchong). It was okay. I like Scalzi’s style fine, and unlike The Android’s Dream this one didn’t involve a lot of casual killing by people you wouldn’t expect to be mass murderers. A dog dies and there’s a bunch of drama over a near/non-death. The entire plot is all kind of stupidly coincidental and convenient, but that’s okay since it’s basically a science fiction comedy kind of thing. I wouldn’t go out of my way to recommend it, but if you like Scalzi, it’s not terrible. Woo, ringing endorsement!
