Scalzi Double (Lazy Book Reviewer Jr. Returns)

This review hails the return of the Lazy Book Reviewer Jr. Recently I have given Jr (aged 12) access to my John Scalzi collection, and he has been busily reading ever since. I am glad to see he has my impeccable taste in books and Scalzi is now one of his favorite authors. 

John Scalzi has delivered yet again another highly entertaining Sci-Fi read. The narrative as always moves along at a thrilling pace with characters that leap of the page and give you a cheeky slap just to make sure you are paying attention.

Locked In delivers a plot that is both fresh, intriguing. As always the author weaves together a tale that keeps you engaged and your grey matter working right to the last page.

I don't want to give away any of this story, as a part of the joy of reading Scalzi is discovering the world he has created. So if you have yet to experience John Scalzi get of your collectives rear ends and get reading people.

Hope your hyper drive's in working order for this awesome hilarious sci-fi adventure. Our main character Andrew and his friends Mya, Finn, Hester and Jimmy are transferred to the starship Intrepid and realize something is seriously wrong with the ship. Like personnel dodging commanding officers so they don't get on away missions to planets because people always die on away mission with certain officers. 

After our main characters are put on an away mission themselves and nearly die they seek out Jenkins, a hermit who hides in the cargo tunnels of the ship working on his independent research project. Jenkins tells them that their world is being warped by a Star trek like TV program, and things get pretty interesting from there. Over all it is an awesome read for teens and adults alike and it is one of my personal favorites.

5 Stars
