    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.… (mehr)

I'm really torn about this book. The last third or so is the only part that seems truly new to the series, as the previous part was all just a retelling of the events in The Last Colony. That part really dragged for me.
Add in the fact that Zoe did not seem like a typical 15 y/o and I almost quit the book.
I'm glad I stuck it out as the last part of the book was interesting, but overall, there wasn't a very compelling reason as to WHY this book even exists ( )

In a nutshell, Zoe's Tale is The Last Colony told from Zoe's point of view.

It definitely has a different feel to it than the rest of the Old Man's War books, matching the idea that it was written by a teenage girl (having never been one, I can't guarantee the accuracy, but it worked for me).

(Obin: “it,” not “he” or “she.” Because they’re hermaphrodites. That means male and female sex organs. Go ahead and have your giggle. I’ll wait. Okay, done? Good.)

On top of that, you do actually get a pretty decent chunk of storyline that John and Jane never saw--Zoe's pretty sneaky when you get down to it. Honestly, it strains belief how much she gets away, but in my headcanon... Jane totally knew at least some of it. Works out.

Other than that, Zoe's Tale has the same problem just about every 'the same story from a different POV' has: we already know how things are going to go. It's hard to have anything that's both surprising but still fit with how we know things have to go. That doesn't make it bad by itself--I really enjoyed Ender's Shadow for one--but it does have to work harder. And Zoe's Tale doesn't quite make it.

Unless you're a completionist, you really could skip Zoe's Tale and just be done with The Last Colony. Not a bad book. Just not necessary. ( )

Somehow I managed to start reading this without even glancing at any of the cover blurbs, so at first I didn't realize this novel was set in the world of [b:Old Man's War|51964|Old Man's War|John Scalzi|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1346671475s/51964.jpg|50700]. In fact, it's apparently a retelling, from a different perspective, of the third book in that series (of which I've only read the first so far). As it turns out, that didn't matter at all.

This is a great story of interstellar colonization, politics, and war, narrated by a smart and snarky teenaged girl. It is, by turns, gripping, moving, and laugh-out-loud funny. At first I thought this is a YA book; maybe it is, but if so, it's a very *smart* YA book, like some of Heinlein's best.

Apparently that third book had some problems for a number of people, because the events described here were in the author's head, but not laid out for readers. That's not a problem here; everything hangs together, even without the context of the series. A few bits might have more resonance if you're familiar with the other books, but it seem to me that it stands up just fine on its own.

Now I'm going to make sure that the other books are on my to-read shelf. ( )

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 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.
