Publisher's Summary

Wildcat colonies are illegal, unauthorized, and secret - so when an injured stranger shows up at the wildcat colony New Seattle, the colony leaders are understandably suspicious of who he is and what he represents. His story of how he’s come to their colony is shocking, surprising, and might have bigger consequences than anyone could have expected.
Walk the Plank is a tale from John Scalzi's The Human Division, a series of self-contained but interrelated short stories set in the Old Man's War universe.

Boring Hard-to-Follow Transcript

The narrator did a good job, considering what he had to work with. He had to read the name of every speaker!!! The book is 39 minutes of a boring story that sounds like this:

Brown: Hey, John. How did you like "Walk the Plank"?
Smith: It was pretty boring. I fell asleep listening to it.
Jackson: Oh, no. And you bought the whole series, didn't you?
Smith: Yeah, Steve, I did.
Andrews: Bummer. You bought it too, didn't you, Mary?
Perkins: Yep. I'm going crazy listening to the narrator read everybody's name!
Brown: Man, I bet that really sucks.
Smith: No kidding. Hope it gets better as the series progresses.

Prologue to the next episode

39 minutes ARE YOU SERIOUS?

If you exclude all names, there will be only 20 minutes left

this is just a prologue-side story to the next episode,
so don't waste time and buy episode 2 and 3 at once.

Continues to be entertaining

Each episode is its own tale. However they are interconnected - even if it does not really seem so at first in some cases. It's one Universe and one big story - and these are lots of little ones within. Personally I've enjoyed the writing and the reading - I'm now on episode 9 and enjoying it as much as the first. If you like sci-fi you won't be disappointed.

Even Shorter But Just As Sweet

Having listened to "The B Team" By John Scalzi and Narrated by William Dufris i immediately Downloaded/Listened to this episode "Walk The Plank" The second Episode in the Human Division and Written/Narrated by Scalzi/Dufris.



If you have read my review of the previous episode you will know that i thought the narrator (Dufris) was brilliant which really helped the story along. He narrates very passionately (or so it seems). In this volume he does not disappoint.



This story is good, but much like the last one the charm is in the narration more then the actual story. having said i'm starting to feel that the "season long" storyline may be starting to show through. which may build upon the charm of the actual story. Don't get me wrong the each episode does have a good plot and they are well worth listening to.



Much like the title of this review suggest this episode is shorter then the last one but its just as good.



I don't feel i connected as much to the characters in this weeks episode(2) to that of last weeks (1) i did find myself thinking when will last weeks charters be back i hope Wilson is in the next episode....
