Now that we're (mostly) past all the explanations for how they're programming their "magic", the pace is picking up a little.

How can a book be both entertaining and boring at the same time? IDK, but somehow this book is managing it.

Review: Red Shirts
Redshirts: A Novel with Three Codas (Audible Audio) - Wil Wheaton,John Scalzi

A+++

 

I am so angry with myself for not listening to this audiobook sooner!  This is the perfect spoof/breaking-the-fourth-wall scifi story.  Think Star Trek with the ridiculousness and shenanigans amped up to 1,000.  And then the "protagonists" realize that they're the extras in a badly written scifi television show and they are all doomed unless they can do something about the writing  of the show.

 

The characters were perfection.  They were instantly likeable and interesting.   I was rooting for them from the moment they realized they were as good as dead if they were unlucky enough to be added to an away team.  And THEN they learned the insane truth that they're fictional characters.  The race was then on to figure out how to get the show cancelled so that they all didn't die tragic deaths.

 

The writing was fantastic.  I could have listened to ten more hours of it, especially with Wil Wheaton's amazing narration.   This gets all the stars and I highly recommend it!
