Old Man's War by John Scalzi
« on: June 20, 2017, 04:01:35 PM »

When you're on vacation you've got plenty of time to read up on some literature.

Also finished reading Old Man's War by John Scalzi. Was a bit reluctant to pick this one up, for i always have a hard time reading books from a first persons view.

Can't say i particulary liked Scalzi's writing style (nor did i dislike it), and i found the pace of the story a tad too quick, but i liked the general idea and the world Scalzi created.

Once again, is this a series i should follow up on, or don't bother with the rest.

Yay, new thread!

Thanks for the short review. I will stay clear of it I think. Cannot stand not finishing series and time is too precious to spend it on crapness.

What made you pick it up in the first place Baz?
