Old Man's War (Old Man's War, #1)

Old Man's War (Old Man's War, #1) - John Scalzi I'm not generally a fan of first-person stories, but this one was well-done, especially considering how much self-describing took place (what with being "young" again). There were a few places in the middle where I was wondering where the plot was going (there was no "question" or real conflict to draw me forward), but then once it hit stride, I was pulled along for the ride again. Some interesting science fiction concepts are put to the test here, and many emotional scenes take place in between, making for a balanced read. It's a good book--check it out!
