The Last Colony by John Scalzi

I bought this book from Audible and listened to it using my iPhone and the Audible app.

This is the third book in John Scalzi’s series Old Man’s War.

This story did not work for me, there were to many GLARING plot holes and things left half-baked. This is the first of Scalzi’s books that I didn’t really enjoy. It was ok, just not as original a story I have come to expect from him.

William Dufris does a great job of narrating, he is one of my favorite performers.

From the publisher:

Retired from his fighting days, John Perry is now village ombudsman for a human colony on distant Huckleberry. With his wife, former Special Forces warrior Jane Sagan, he farms several acres, adjudicates local disputes, and enjoys watching his adopted daughter grow up.

That is, until his and Jane’s past reaches out to bring them back into the game – as leaders of a new human colony, to be peopled by settlers from all the major human worlds, for a deep political purpose that will put Perry and Sagan back in the thick of interstellar politics, betrayal, and war.

I rate this book a 6 out 10 and recommend it only to those who are following the Old Man’s War series.
