Intelligent, entertaining SF,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Old Man's War (Taschenbuch)
This is great SF, written in a very nice style; John Scalzi handles the characters, technology, and political dimension equally well. His ideas are (at least in this setting) novel and convincing - the basic concept of drawing octogenarians for galactic war offering them a new life is just brilliant (not the concept as such, but as idea for a SF story, of course).
His main character is set up brilliantly, and Scalzi has wonderful timing, never loosing the reader?s attention. This is a pageturner, and if you like well written SF, highly recommended.
The sequel ?the ghost brigades? has a slightly different focus, but is as gripping.
