read: The Sagan Diary

The Sagan DiaryThe Sagan Diary by John Scalzi

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

An odd little collection of philosophical internal monologues from a futuristic special-ops soldier being decommissioned. I never really quite bought the voice, which seemed much too mature and educated for a piece of meat grown in a vat, trained to fight at an accelerated rate, turned out to battle, and alive for only a relatively few years. But props to John Scalzi for good writing and experimenting with the form.
