So, John Scalzi's new book, "Redshirts," is getting a lot of buzz on the sci-fi sites.
Curious, I downloaded the free preview chapters to my Kindle.
I'm going to be passing on this book.
It's not that it's a pardoy of Trek. On the Other Blog I've written a couple of short stories skewering the hell out of TNG.
It's not even the Meta elements that appeared in the chapters.
No, it's the fact that the four chapters were profoundly boring. They weren't interesting at all.
Maybe the story picks up in later chapters, but I'll never know because the first four weren't enough to hold my interest.
Thumbs down, "Redshirts."
Thumbs way down.
