Redshirts, by John Scalzi

This is an unusual book.  In 2456, our hero, Dahl, gets assigned to a spaceship.  He notices that on every away mission a low ranking crew member gets killed.  And the captain, chief science officer, and a poor guy named Kerensky always live through the mission (although Kerensky always gets badly hurt).

What happens next is strange and I won't say a word because it would all be a spoiler.

I kind of liked it when I closed the book, but as I think about it a bit, I can't decide if I really do like it or really don't like it.  Strange.
