Books feel difficult these days. I’m beyond unmotivated. Resources of it drained in a year of quarantine. But, if slowly, I got through “Old Man’s War” by John Scalzi, first in the series.
About the Book: Humans are slowly but surely putting their roots into the soil of the great universe. Some get to go as colonists. Others as those who’ll defend humanity, those said colonies, and make room for more. But here’s a catch… Those who can only enlist into military, can only do so when they’re 75, knowing nothing about anything out there, not even how a war is fought with such old soldiers.
My Opinion: It began a bit slow, but steadily picked up and then kept a good pace through and through. There’s action, but not too much. There’s gore, but not too much either. There’s good humor and a mediocre love story. All in all, if Expeditionary Force is too much, then this will be just right. A good book, easy to read, with a nice new view on how humans could begin their life as part of the Universe.
A very fine book. Solid 4 out of 5.
