Title: Old Man’s War

Series: Old Man’s War #1

Author: John Scalzi

Rating: 3 of 5 Stars

Genre: SFF

Pages: 287



A “Space Army” exists, but you can only join once you turn 75. They have amazing tech, which they dribble to Earth. They also protect Earth and her Colonies from everything else Out There.

Follows one man whose wife has died and he joins up on his birthday.

A military story ensues with just the right amount of Future Tech and a slight mystery to keep things interesting.


My Thoughts:

Sadly, Scalzi crossed one of my Lines in the Sand, so I won’t be reading any more by him.

That being said, if it wasn’t for that, this would be a 5 star book. This is what Science Fiction should be like.
