Old Man's War by John Scalzi
Old Man's War

MonicaMcW, January 1, 2012

If you like the writing styles of Robert A Heinlein and Spider Robinson, "Old Man's War" will immediately draw you in. It is fast-paced, plot-wise, and intelligently written, science-wise. He takes the idea that humans, just because they're old (you have to be seventy-five years old to enlist), they don't have anything to contribute.

Scalzi is an amazing story-teller, and the next books in the series, "The Ghost Brigade" and "The Last Colony", will stick with you, long after you've finished reading them.
