Old Man’s War

August 5, 2008

One of the fun things about being a Kindle owner is that Amazon (well, technically publishers through Amazon) makes free books available. Tor made a bunch available last month, and since I like Sci Fi I snapped (most of) them up. I’ve made it through the first one, Old Man’s War, and I must say I’m pleasantly surprised. The plot owes an obvious debt to Starship Troopers, but the whole old-soldiers-get-young-bodies-before-fighting-aliens was a new angle. Scalzi didn’t really have anything deep to say about the human condition, but for a light summertime read it was highly enjoyable. Now I just hope the others in the batch Tor gave away are as fun.
