It’s a race to find out what really happened, and who is to blame.

This series is getting Better and Better!!!!

Thats it, this series is in my A list .... the sabotage, the plot, the mysteries are really great... I was at work while listening to this one, and i couldn't focus mch at work the whole time.. had to go for a break to focus on the book..

In this book you see more and more into the human division, and who are trying to create more conflict between Earth and the Colonial Union... It got tense in a point in the book but then you have your B team to save the day, well mainly Wilson as usual.

i can't wait to see what will happen in the end of this series, but i think its going to be great.

Pretty good episode for this series but ...

This is Episode 9 of The Human Division series. Only two episodes so far have in my opinion been freestanding episodes with good, solid story lines and endings. Many of these episodes, including this one, are just filler stuff, making me wonder why Scalzi divided what might have been one longer book into all these silly pieces. That being said, this episode had an okay plot with some cute humor and then a pretty good ending. I am ready for them to start coming together to create what hopefully will be an exciting bigger picture and great conclusion.

The narrator did a good job, despite the fact that there were no real challenges to the performance.
