Book Report: Agent to the Stars, by John Scalzi

According to the introduction, this was Scalzi's first novel. He describes it as a kind of proof of concept, an answer to the question, "Can I write a novel?"
That's an interesting approach and rationale, and an even more interesting result. Sure it's got its flaws. I thought the plot meandered a bit, like a man exploring new country, and his tone was a little too flippant at times. However, Scalzi's first attempt at a novel is still worth paying to read.

Ulysses Rating: 3 - I enjoyed this.
