Zoe's Tale
Zoe's Tale | John Scalzi
6 posts | 30 read | 11 to read
How do you tell your part in the biggest tale in history?I ask because it's what I have to do. I'm Zoe Boutin Perry: A colonist stranded on a deadly pioneer world. Holy icon to a race of aliens. A player (and a pawn) in a interstellar chess match to save humanity, or to see it fall. Witness to history. Friend. Daughter. Human. Seventeen years old.Everyone on Earth knows the tale I am part of. But you don't know my tale: How I did what I did how I did what I had to do not just to stay alive but to keep you alive, too. All of you. I'm going to tell it to you now, the only way I know how: not straight but true, the whole thing, to try make you feel what I felt: the joy and terror and uncertainty, panic and wonder, despair and hope. Everything that happened, bringing us to Earth, and Earth out of its captivity. All through my eyes.It's a story you know. But you don't know it all.

This book expands upon a character and a few events from the “The Last Colony”. I‘m glad that Scalzi expanded on the Zoe character. She was worth it.

TFW... You only have J, K, Q, X, and Z to go in your 2020 #litsyatoz challenge, and you realise you are up to Zoe's Tale in the Old Man's War series.

Books I am considering for the others :
- The January Stars, Jane Unlimited, Jewel in the North
- Karen Memory, Know My Name, The Killing Moon, Not One Girl Two
- A Question of Blood, Quite a Year for Plums
- Exhalation, The Poet X

runswithscissors007 How can you not read a book titled Quite a year for plums?! 2y

At first I thought this would be boring, bc it‘s the same plot as the last book - The Last Colony - just told from the teenage daughter‘s perspective instead of the parents‘.

I should‘ve trusted Scalzi - after a bit of a slow start, it was fascinating. Gotta love a book that makes you laugh AND cry! #jesshowreads2018

This one took along time to get really going, 16 chapters in fact. Once I got through that I really enjoyed it. The felt the ending was very touching.
