Book Review: Redshirts by John Scalzi - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (13 Jun 2012)
Redshirts is a setup of Star Trek, but from the point of view of the minor characters, that is, the ones who are expendable. They try and piece together why their life's seem so absurd and why there is such a high mortality rate.
This book is kind of quirky bordering on funny. There are a number of reveals which were unexpected, not to mention a total send up of some classic Sci-Fi shows. I found Scalzi's writing style a little disjointed and excessive use of ‘he said’ when swapping between characters was frustrating.
Overall an excellent concept and enjoyable read.
