Redshirts by John Scalzi

One of my best reads this past year; this book starts off as a farce of Star Trek, and other sci-fi shows.  (The guys with the red shirts were always the ones that failed to come back from those ‘away’ missions.)   It ends with thoughtful questions.  It starts off funny as **** and ends with touching poignancy. And if nothing else, at the end, you will want to wrest your own life from its Narrative and take control of it.  I don’t know if it is better, or worse, than other books with this plot idea. I do know that I enjoyed it tremendously.
