    Good SF fun

    Scali's lead story for his novel in episodes is a solid start with appealing characters and a smart set up. I look forward to reading the whole book when all the episodes are released and tied together in one cover.

    I've been casting about for something new to read, it was a grea

    I've been casting about for something new to read, it was a great pleasure to find something by John Scalzi. I read After the Coup, The B Team carries that story forward in Scalzi's wry style.

    highly recommended

    Very surprised by how quickly I came to care for the characters and the plot. Quite ingenious plot with surprisingly believable characters. Only flaw is kind of short but for a buck worth it.

    Gritty Sci-Fi.

    Well written and fast paced. An Earth star ship is destroyed before a big diplomatic mission, and they send in the "B" team to clean up the mess.

    Good, but absolutely will not continue this series

    A good, but very short read. I enjoyed the writing style and probably would have continued with the series. Until, that is, I discovered the next installment was a mere 32 pages. Followed by 48 pages and then 36 pages. So, rather than charge an outlandish $12 or $13 for an e-book, they decided to charge $0.99 per chapter amounting to the same? The author and publisher should rethink how they treat the consumer. In the meantime, this consumer will boycott both.

    Good start

    This is the first installment of a book. It is a different way of publishing. There are more to be published. It ends up costing the same as if you bought the finished book.
    The story is along the lines of colonial space expansion with tension between colonies and earth. This story is set in the same universe as his Old Man's War series

    Short & engaging

    For 99 cents, you get a short but engaging story with good characters & dialog. If you read sci-fi, it's worth a try.

    This is a good book but an annoying marketing choice

    Like many famous authors in the past, Dickens and Twain, this book is being sold serially. So even if you only pay .99 for the chapter there are 13 chapter
