Much, much later with one star added. I think John Scalzi is an awesome, awesome blogger. So I wish I'd liked this book more, but alas, aforesaid Heinlein issues. However I'm going to give Scalzi's novels another chance, also possibly because he may have been sending up Heinlein and it went whooshing over my head. And it's a new day here at Goodreads with a new policy about not discussing authors or sumfin'
. Frankly I'm a little curious about what happens if I say in a review John Scalzi is a really really great guy, a terrific human being, a Brilliantly Behaving Author.
