My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The relationship between 'real world' and the 'writer's world' gets warped and twisted in John Scalzi's Redshirts Scalzi's tale of a universe shaped by "The Narrative" wherein his characters find themselves behaving in unexplained ways while the Narrative takes hold of a situation is a fun read, especially from a writer's point of view. A science fiction television show, and a badly written one at that, is the focus of Andrew Dahl's adventure in Redshirts as he is assigned to the fleet's flagship and realizes that his life is no longer his own. His life, just like everyone else on the ship, is controlled by the Narrative.
