rating: 3 of 5 stars
Old Man’s War, at its core, is about an old man who misses his late wife. In the course of missing her he enlists in military service that puts him in a young body and then all over the universe to protect human colonists from aliens. It is kind of Starship Troopers without its whackadoo politics mixed with Cocoon with nanotech. Kinda.
If you want to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon reading a fun science fiction novel, check it out. The reading is easy and accessible and should not take most folks more than a few days to read.
I enjoyed it and if I am ever on a beach and want some fun sci-fi candy, I will likely pick up one of its sequels.
Game: This book reminded me so much of 3:16 Carnage Among the Stars it hurt.
