Scalzi, John -- The Last Colony

Conclusion of what the author has referred to as "paying the mortgage". No, this is unfair -- I didn't start to think that until I realized that Scalzi's next book (not yet read) was this one written over again. And that's also unfair, because I don't expect it to be bad. This one was fine too. However, the broader look at Scalzi's galactic milieu turns out not to be a lot more convincing than the peephole grunt's-eye-view of Old Man's War. Don't think farther back than a couple hundred years, and enjoy the easy political thrills.
