Wow I get to rip apart a Scalzi book. I have heard how it was completely undeserving of the Hugo Award so it must be easy to tear apart.

Okay so first off. You are simply ridiculous and being foolish if you don’t believe Redshirts is deserving of a Hugo Award. I don’t know how the Nebula awards are voted on, but it should have won that as well. John Scalzi should have won every SFF award out there for Redshirts. I suppose the debut novel award should go to someone else, but shit people; Redshirts is fucking brilliant.
I know, I know, you’re not supposed to use swear words as descriptive words, but Jesus Fucking Christ people, Redshirts is a brilliant fucking novel. It’s amazing.
If you’re a fan or have an even a passing interest in Star Trek, you will want to hold this book and make sweet donkey like lovin’ to it for being so beautifully brilliant.
If you have only heard of Star Trek, by the end of Redshirts you’ll want to make out with the book for its beautiful comedy put into words.
If you have never heard of Star Trek you’ll still feel like making out with the beautiful comedy put into words.
Redshirts is just awesome. It’s so funny at parts you will seriously get to the point you can’t laugh anymore, because no air is left in your lungs from laughing. At parts it is so clever that I literally stopped reading and simply looked at the words trying to comprehend how he managed to pull it off.
If you have yet to read Redshirts do yourself a favor. Go to your local bookstore or library and get the book. You’ll thank me after you read it
