Redshirts: A Novel with Three Codas by John Scalzi

adventurous emotional lighthearted mysterious fast-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? It's complicated
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? No


Maybe glosses over some finer sci fi points, but overall a delightfully surprising and slightly subversive sci fi novel. I laughed, I got attached to the characters and their dilemma, and appreciated how things came together. I found the "three codas" aspect unneeded, but it was still good.
