Zoe’s Tale gets a positive nod in the San Francisco paper today:
Scalzi’s “Old Man’s War” novels owe a debt to Robert A. Heinlein’s “Starship Troopers,” and “Zoe’s Tale” tips its hat to the much-loved Heinlein juveniles, such as “Podkayne of Mars.” Zoe is an appealingly articulate character, and her growth from bored space passenger to hard-edged diplomat stays within the bounds of believability… the novel can please both adult and young-adult readers who appreciate cleverly constructed and emotionally rich space adventures.
Excellent. These sorts of reviews make me happy. The review is the second of two (the first: The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins, also positively reviewed), so scroll down a bit to see it.
