Overview

The second episode of The Human Division, John Scalzi's new thirteen-episode novel in the world of his bestselling Old Man's War. Beginning on January 15, 2013, a new episode of The Human Division will appear in e-book form every Tuesday.

Wildcat colonies are illegal, unauthorized and secret—so when an injured stranger shows up at the wildcat colony New Seattle, the colony leaders are understandably suspicious of who he is and what he represents. His story of how he's come to their colony is shocking, surprising, and might have bigger consequences than anyone could have expected.

I looked at the reviews to see if i might like to purchase this book, only to find that people were actually not writing book reviews, they are writing a description of themselves as if they are on a dating site. Am i missing something B&N? Is this what book reviews have come to on B&N? Hey B&N start screening your book reviews please!

After getting over 200 pages in the first book, I was mildly disappointed to get less than 70 in this one. Its a decent short story; nothing exceptional. It is good if you have a little time and want to read something.

A man is on a ship when it gets boarded. A brief story about what happens to him. Written like a play so it's a little weird to read, but still a good story.

The story is very good. However. I feel ripped off. It is only 66 pages in my Nook and half of that is contents, advertisement and other info not related to the story... okay, I exagerated. Only 12 of the 66 pages were not related to the story. I'll not buy another "eposide" I rate it 1 star

I enjoyed the first in this new series and was excited enough to preorder the remaining episodes. However, the second episode was only 66 pages long. Very disappointed. Perhaps as the story progresses I will change my mind. Perhaps I should have waited until the series was consolidated into only one or two e-books, HMMMM.

Loved part one which was over 200 pages. Part two was only 66 pages which was rather disappointing. The story of part two also did not fit in with that of part one. After you read part three it will make sense though. Part one and part two are like the introduction for the story to begin in part three, which is 100 or so pages. It will be interesting to see how part four goes.

The first story in this series, B-Team, really impressed me.  A complete story arch, the great beginnings of a series, all in a nice, easy to read package. I was quite disappointed, then, when the second in the series was 1/4 of the length, and not a story at all, apparently just a setup of things to come.  None of the same characters, none of the action.  A depressing and depressingly short  interlude. Had the first book not been so good, I probably would have been happier with this one.  But the first set expectations very high, and this second part failed to deliver.
