Old Man’s War – John Scalzi

Old Man’s War has an amusing and original premise – if you are from one of the ‘have’ nations on earth and want to emigrate to the space colonies, you have to enlist in their space-navy.  But you need to wait until you are 75 years old.

The premise and the McBlood trademarks are my favorite parts.  The actual battles and conflicts are far less memorable.

I think I will track down one sequel, but if it does not develop a stronger narrative drive, that’ll be all.
