Faster than light travel is impossible--until the discovery of The Flow, an extradimensional field available at certain points in space-time, which can take us to other planets around other stars. Riding The Flow, humanity spreads to innumerable other worlds. Earth is forgotten. A new empire arises, the Interdependency, based on the doctrine that no one human outpost can survive without the others. It's a hedge against interstellar war--and, for the empire's rulers, a system of control. But when it's discovered that the entire Flow is moving, possibly separating all human worlds from one another forever, a scientist, a starship captain, and the emperox of the Interdependency must race to find out what can be salvaged from an empire on the brink of collapse. --… (mer)

After this, I plan on reading more Scalzi. ( )

Definitely one of the best series I read this year. (Review is of the whole series because I read them so quickly I can't remember what parts happened in which volume)
In the far future, humanity is set up on a series of planets and systems that are connected by some pretty neat worm holes. They don't really know where they came from or how they work, which is a problem because it appears that they're closing. The new Emperox is concerned with trying to hold civilization together and rescue folks from worlds that aren't sustainable without the Interdependency because she's a benevolent ruler, but the power- and money-hungry factions of her quasi-government don't really care about that and so they're engaged in all kinds of machinations to thwart her in the pursuit of the aforementioned power and money.
Another main character is Lady Kiva Lagos who is probably the most delightfully profane person I've ever come across and I love her deeply. She will (and frequently does) sleep with anybody and doesn't give a F*** about anything but her family and getting laid, until she's in the middle of this whole cluster and seems to just enjoy f-ing up the lives of people who are a-holes.
Lastly, we have Marce Claremont, who grew up on the farthest planet out because his father was exiled there to try to figure out the whole tunnel disappearance thing (one had disappeared a some years prior), and his dad wants him to get back to inform the Emperox what he found out. He's a sweet, nerdy dude with a big brain and an even bigger heart. I love him, too.
In fact, I loved all these characters and also hated everyone trying to get in their way, and if you're a reader of Science Fiction, you know that usually they're more about ideas and plot (or blasting up space aliens) than characters. The great thing about Scalzi is that he writes amazing characters *in addition* to great plots and his stories engage both your mind and your heart. Well done. Highly recommend. ( )

If you like space opera, you'll like this: it's a fast, fun read.

I had two objections: it's a bit short, which means waiting for roughly long enough for a round-trip voyage to End until the next installment and it's definitely the start of a series. Also, I feel like this universe has plenty of room for more books, which left me wanting a bit more in the way of background. Technology is generally left unexplained, which feels more natural since people don't typically walk around explaining pedestrian details of daily life but did leave me wanting to know more about what the average person does.

3.8 I was going to read a chapter or two and then I was in the middle and quite hooked. This is some good space opera. It also gets one thinking about the entire human population and how we are organized (religions, governments, economy). ( )

In the far future, a scientist predicts the collapse of mankind's interstellar empire, tries to get the word out, moves to a distant planet where he continues his research - exactly as in Asimov's Foundation. But unlike in Foundation here you find relatable characters that you actually give a damn about. Best space opera I've read in a long time and by far the best John Scalzi novel I've read, including Old Man's War. Also, best spaceship names of the entire space opera genre ("Yes sir, that's my baby"?!). It's upsetting though that despite the almost exactly identical premise Scalzi doesn't acknowledge Foundation's influence: http://www.tor.com/2017/03/28/something-borrowed-five-books-i-was-thinking-of-wh... Finally, Wil Wheaton's narration is irregular: the pacing is great but most characters sound exactly the same. ( )

Scalzi continues to be almost insufferably good at his brand of fun but think-y sci-fi adventure.

The mutineers would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for the collapse of the Flow.
