Book – Old Man’s War: A+

old man's warA+
After three novels, I am finally getting a hang of Scalzi’s style (filled with witty Whedon-like dialog and major changes to structure and style as the story progresses). This was certainly the best of his that I’ve read, especially the second half which reminded me of World War Z, in that it was overflowing with awesome ideas presented in differing fashions. At first I thought its portrayal of 75-year-olds forming friend cliques and riffing off each other to be a bit exaggerated. Then, while waiting in an airport, I witnessed that exact thing happen to a bunch or random elderly strangers. Scalzi may know what he’s doing afterall, and I find myself now sitting on the author’s bandwagon.
