    eBook John Scalzi ☆ Old Man's War Epub  Old Man's PDF/EPUB or ☆ man's kindle, Old Man's pdf, Old Man's War PDFThere wasn't anything horribly wrong with this book but I found myself unattached to any of the characters And even for a science fiction novel I thought a lot of the plot was just unbelievable; the main character seems to excel at and have the answer to everything while his fellow soldiers get killed left and right The people he meets are little than cannon fodder and you don't really get a chance to like them so it's not that big a deal when they bite it Scalzi chooses to barely describe the various characters and when they get their upgrades they all are young and beautiful and even harder to tell apart It also doesn't help that every single character has the same snarky voice; even the womenAlmost a full half of the novel is spent on setup and getting the soldiers ready for battle A lot of the technology was interesting and also easy to understand but I felt like too much time was spent on leading up to the main story And then when t

    eBook John Scalzi ☆ Old Man's War Epub  Old Man's PDF/EPUB or ☆ man's kindle, Old Man's pdf, Old Man's War PDFA few weeks ago I was at one of my children's friend's homes watching the two of them do a dubious job on a joint project and nattering away about fiction with the friend's father At the end of the day he pressed Scalzi's Old Man's War into my hands He didn't pitch it He just said I'd like itI wasn't sure what to expect I knew Scalzi — I follow him on Twitter we've sat on panels together I could pick him out in a line up with confidence — but none of these things necessarily translates into someone's fiction Can you tell what my novels will be like after reading my Twitter feed after shooting the breeze with me over a school project after seeing me stride across a parking lot? Who knows But it turned out that that it did translate Online Scalzi is a warm unflinching sentimental humorous shit stirrer And Old Man's War is a warm unflin

    eBook John Scalzi ☆ Old Man's War Epub  Old Man's PDF/EPUB or ☆ man's kindle, Old Man's pdf, Old Man's War PDFsometimes a first novel gets everything right writing that is clean clear and fluid characterization that is simple straightforward and real a narrative that hurtles forward but does not feel rushed or incomplete ideas that feel new and that are conveyed with enthusiasm and a brisk unpretentious freshness such is Old Man's Warthis is a military science fiction novel and the first of a series that probably brings up a whole host of automatic preconceptions about what will be happening and how the protagonist a recruit in the interstellar wars of the future will be uickly introduced to his new life initial bonding with his fellow soldiers training with a tough drill maste

    eBook John Scalzi ☆ Old Man's War Epub  Old Man's PDF/EPUB or ☆ man's kindle, Old Man's pdf, Old Man's War PDF299 Kindle sale October 7 2018 Old Man's War is about military life in the future fighting aliens over planets to colonize The mysterious Colonial Defense Force recruits 75 year old men and women to fight its wars and many sign up because some sort of second shot at youth is involved and at this point in their lives they figure there's nothing to lose But exactly what are they getting themselves into? And how is the CDF going to turn all these old farts into fighting machines?I was really proud of my deductive reasoning in figuring out that this book was an homage to Robert Heinlein's Starship Troopers but then I realized I'm like the umpteenth millionth person to figure that out and anyway there it is right in Scalzi's acknowledgements at the end of the book In any case it's a lot less didactic and preachy and much easier to read than Heinlein's book for me anyway if not as realistic about military life There were some philosophical ues

    eBook John Scalzi ☆ Old Man's War Epub  Old Man's PDF/EPUB or ☆ man's kindle, Old Man's pdf, Old Man's War PDFI'm about to say something I wasn't sure I'd ever say about a science fiction novel about interstellar war this book is warmly humanist in its approach From the first time I sat down to read it I felt invited and welcomed into the world Scalzi was creating I enjoyed meeting and spending time with the characters he creates who are mostly interesting and intelligent people that you'd want to know I loved the digressions about the morality of following orders and war as the easy way to deal with conflictNote The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the recent changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision hereIn the meantime you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook

    eBook John Scalzi ☆ Old Man's War Epub  Old Man's PDF/EPUB or ☆ man's kindle, Old Man's pdf, Old Man's War PDFDefinitely an enjoyable read A nice mix of philosophical and humorous observations especially in the beginning manage to capture the tone of an older person looking back on a long lifeThe beginning starts with John the main character entering a recruiter's office to review and sign his enlistment contract It is a marvelous device allowing John's internal commentary and reactions to provide needed background to the current political and technological setting Scalzi's straightforward writing structure dovetails nicely with the factual tone the narrator originally takes in describing the journey on the recruit ship and the interactions with his shipmates After undergoing his transformation John loses a little of his emotional dis
