Old Man's War
Old Man's War
Price: £4.19

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like your sci-fi, read this book, its brilliant!, 23 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Old Man's War (Kindle Edition)
With a good mix of tech, aliens, military, humour and a really original premise for a book, this is an excellent read. In my opinion, on a par with The Forever War. Scalzi paints a melancholy view of the future universe, with great detail and believable tech, its a must read for any sic-fi fan. One of the best books I've read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr Scarrow, you are brilliant!!, 23 Aug 2013

I so loved this book, this series! I couldn't wait to read each part as it came out. Having read all of the Eagle series I was thoroughly entertained. It was such a page turner that i found it hard to put down. Including Macro into the series is a nice nod and wink to the Eagle series, and it leaves you wanting more Roman brilliance from Mr Scarrow! Also, it's an interesting way of delivering a book, in short parts.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting idea., 23 Aug 2013

I read this book with an open mind. I enjoyed it because I really liked the idea that's central to the book. However, it just lacked a bit of a killer instinct at the end, it fell a bit flat and fizzled out. I have an archaeology degree and so it interested me from the start, but a little more attention to finishing the story would have made this into a great read. It'll be interesting to read more of the Matt Turner series.

5.0 out of 5 stars I want another book in the series!, 23 Aug 2013

I absolutely loved this book and the whole series. For me, there was everything that I would be looking for in a great sc-fi story: action, tech, aliens, snappy dialogue and a pace to the story just kept you reading far to late in the evening.

Not asa good as Old Man's war, but still very enjoyable. And, without any spoilers, I felt a very touching ending.
