Old Man's War

Old Man's War - John Scalzi I had a lot of fun with this - it's been a while since I've sat with a pocket paperback and just plowed through it. It's smart and well-considered sci-fi, rising above the traps of the genre while also making sure to hit all of the proper marks you'd expect in a first-time-out sort of adventure. Scalzi does a great job making the twists innovative or at least interesting and his eye for humanity in the midst of, you know, SPACE, is probably the best thing about the book. Makes for a rip-snorting, fun read - I'm looking forward to book two right now.More at RB: http://wp.me/pGVzJ-GP
