This review is from: Old Man's War (The Old Man's War series) (Paperback)
Scalzi's writing is very approachable (you don't have to be a hardened SciFi nut to get through it, yet there is enough to keep a SciFi fan interested) - I think its the way that Scalzi introduces and describes the future-technology without going into the whole 'Star Trek Universe' pseudo-science thing. That said, the Scalzi universe is still recognisably human and tech hasn't taken over - not at least until the story goes off-world, and even then the future-tech is there to support the story and not become the story in itself. Much like you probably don't know the intricacies of how the laptop/tablet/pc works, Scalzis soldier characters know enough to use their tech.
