5 stars if this was in novel form
on 30 March 2016
This guy knows how to write; all these stories are well put together, and advance the Old Man's War storyline in such a way, it seems impossible to predict where the next book might take us. The Human Division mainly follows Harry Willson in some excellently diverse adventures set in the period just after the previous two books, and introducing us to some pleasingly rounded secondary characters. So with such praise, why have I only given it just 3 stars? A: It's a book of short stories, and unfortunately I have never felt a sense of complete involvement in any book made up of short stories, the problem is mine, not the authors. There were many of the stories, that I thought could have been linked and broadened in to a very decent novel, which I'm fairly sure would have me hitting the 5 star button.
