Old Man’s War

Old Man's War Old Man’s War by John Scalzi
My review
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Old Man’s War is kinda like Ender’s Game, but with old people instead of kids. The premise is that once Earth-born humans reach age 75, they can enlist in the Colonial Defense Forces, who protect human colonists throughout the universe. The perks include getting a new body, but the downside is that you’re probably going to get killed. The universe is a rough place. There were a lot of similarities to Ender’s Game, and even Starship Troopers, but Old Man’s War definitely holds its own as an entertaining read.
I’m heading to the library soon to pick up the following books for Banned Books Week: Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel, The Guy Book: An Owner’s Manual by Mavis Jukes, The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, and It’s Perfectly Normal by Robie H. Harris. We’ll see how many I get through in a week.
