"Enjoyable, well written, but hardly, epic literature, the balance between glorifying mankind's innate superiority of fighting over the aliens and the harshness of actual war is just about drawn well enough. But I always feel a little uneasy at any kind of glorification of war, and this isn't an anti-war screed." from my review. - here
For the first part of the book, until they received their new bodies, I was worried that the story would be some version of the Twilight Zone episode, "To Serve Man." I think there was some disappointment on my part that there was nothing more to the universe than one species trying to wipe out the others so theirs could survive. Unless you count the ones who were hoping to wipe them all out because of their religious fervor. Nothing really developed. I suppose this is understandable if you realize that this book is the first in a series, but I didn't realize that until the end of the book.
Still, not sorry I read it, and intend to make my OH at least give it a try.
This is my second try at Scalzi. I can see why people like him, but I think I'd like his humour more in a TV show than in a book.
