A review of “Old Man’s War”

Yesterday I finally got my hands on John Scalzi‘s debut novel, Old Man’s War. I ordered it from my local bookstore earlier in the month; it took them a week or two to actually get a copy, and then I was out of funds.

Since .Text has the nifty ability to create non-syndicated posts (known as articles) which must be directly linked to, I’ve created a new article with my review. I’d have reviewed it here but it contains spoilers, so if you haven’t read the book, you may not want to read my review right away.

If you don’t mind spoilers, read away. I very much like the book, but I go into a bit more detail (and I even tell you the one part of the book that broke my suspension of disbelief).

  1. Hey cool, I’ve been looking for a book to read after finishing the first Saganami Island book. I’ll drop by B&N on Thurs and pick it up :).

  2. Call ahead and reserve it; distributors had been having problems getting it and from what I’ve heard, the initial print run is going fast.
