Starred Review of The End of All Things in Publishers Weekly

Well, this is a nice way to start the week: Publishers Weekly give TEoAT a starred review, which means they find the novel especially notable. Along with calling it “polished and powerful,” they also note:

Scalzi knows just how to satisfy his fans, providing tense, thrilling action scenes while turning a critical eye on the interstellar equivalents of the military-industrial complex.

Nifty! The full review is here.

This is the second starred review for the book, the first coming from Kirkus. It’s nice when people like your work.

  1. I finished the final episode last night and loved it.

    I’m going to miss Harry Wilson if, in fact, we’re done with him.

  2. Congratulations! I very much enjoyed it, and it looks as if a lot of people will very much enjoy it as well!

  3. Awesome! Can’t wait to experience it myself.

    Speaking of which, any news on the audiobook release?

  4. Congratulations, Scalzi!
    I haven’t started on it yet. I have to finish SevenEves first, since it came out first, otherwise, I’d havebeeen keeping up with the TEoAT installments as they’ve been released. You and Stephenson are definitely my two favorite current authors, so releasing your books so close to each other has caused a dilemma.
    Do the advance copies for reviewers have the extras that will be included with the print version?

  5. I can’t wait for this one to come out in hard cover (sigh) in August. I’m planning to re-read the previous five books (in order no less!) and then top it off with a new minted copy of TEoAT. (I find it very heartening that the 6th in this Universe is being reviewed so highly. I can’t think of another series, off the top of my head, that has carried that sort of critical respect.)

  6. Congrats!! Looks like TEoAT is gonna be a (another) big hit. :) I enjoyed it very much despite the disconnect from the serial form. Kinda hate to see the last of good characters though. /hint

  7. I enjoy the serial release, and that you do different things with each story: pure action, political intrigue, um, cerebral thriller. Another great read.

  8. People? Please watch the spoilers. Yeah, Beej, you. Some of us are waiting until the full book gets published.

  9. Polished? That’s very high praise considering the… err… submission timetable. Congrats, and I’m sure I’ll enjoy my dead tree copy!
