Hope it's going somewhere

I am a big fan of Scalzi, have read most of his books in hardcover and enjoyed everyone. His narrative style, whether in first or third person, is one that I very much like; it is 'easy listening' and always entertaining.

Having said that, I'm not sure if I should applaud his new endeavour in the 'Human Division' story arc or be irritated by it. I do feel that I'm getting my £0.79 worth each time I listen, but at over 10 quid and counting, I'm beginning to wonder if the stories are going anywhere meaningful soon. There is only so long you can string someone along on a 'phantom menace' premise.

Nevertheless, I look forward each week to the next installment of the Human Division soap/space opera--which is a tribute to Scalzi's storytelling, if nothing else.

Getting better and better!

I was sceptical when I started reading (hearing...) this story. Nowadays I'm eagerly waiting for the next chapter! Paying by the chapter has cost me allready more then what I'm normally willing to pay for an audiobook, but in this case the story and the way it is building up just gets better every chapter!
