    "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."

    The B-Side of The last colony

    This isn't a story of its own, but rather the companion or B-side to Scalzi's last novel that's a required read.
    As such it adds not only an unusual viewpoint to known events but also skillfully fills in some gaps and answers some open questions that really made me curious while reading The Last Colony.
    Due to Zoe's perspective the focus shifts. Especially in the first 2/3 less of the series military sci-fi action and intergalactic politics, but more witty dialogues, characters and sarcasm. Which all works surprisingly well. For me, the experiment was a successful one.

    Just a money grab

    So, I usually don't write negative reviews. But this one annoyed me a lot. Not only for the money but also for the time I sunk into this atrocity. If I like a series I have a hard time not going for the sequel. Even though I was skeptical of this one from the start.

    Zoes's Tale is 100% the events from the third book, just from Zoe's perspective. And that is nothing special. A derivative teenage girl's telling about events we already know the outcome of. There are some side stories here that go into a little more detail about things only hinted off in the third book. But really no valuable information that makes the previous book or even series appear in another light. I guess it would have been fine to put some of this into the third book. But the material in no way justifies writing a whole book about it (or spending the time reading/listening to it).

    This book has broken the series for me. Which is sad because I rather liked it up until then. But I will not go for the remaining books in this series after this one.

    Interessanter Einblick in bekannte Ereignisse

    Schöne Erweiterung der Serie, es werden bereits grob bekannte Ereignisse vertieft und aus Sicht von Zoe dargestellt. Kleines Manko: Leider ist die Aussprache der Namen nicht abgestimmt mit vorhergegangenen Büchern, was zumindest anfangs etwas Verwirrung stiftet.

    well done

    Both Scalzi as the author and Gilbert as narrator manage to make a story where the big events are already known from the previous books in the series interesting, impressive!
    The only minor issue I have is that the narrator pronounced names differently than previous narrator, which might be a bigger issue for someone with stronger OCD tendencies :-)
