John Scalzi / Old Man's War / Terrific Idea, Terrific Book

John Scalzi's Old Man's War
Just kept showing up
John Scalzi is all over the web
Just couldn't ignore it any more

Cracked the book and disappeared
The premise was intriguing
Life trundles along on Earth
In the far reaches of space, War!
War that has gone on for generations

Unique is who fights the war
Only the very old can enlist
If you are old and looking death in the face
Enlistment entices with the hint of rejuvenation
Prolonged life and health
Who wouldn't sign up?

The trick is in how they prolong your life
I'm not telling
Discovery is too rich

The attrition rate in the army is atrocious
Most recruits do not make it to discharge

Who do we fight?
Aliens, Lots of Aliens
Lots of different Alien Cultures

A must read for Sci-Fi and Space Opera readers
Looking forward to the next book
The Ghost Brigades
Series title: Old Man's War
5 books and counting

Music revisited and worth it!
Blue Nightfall
Jimmy LaFave
