  • Quick, easy read.

    By ICEbergJD
    cool concept.
  • Wonderful

    By Flash0321
    This book was such a delight to read. Out of the box writing makes you feel a part of the story.
  • Video game in print

    By casacordova
    This felt like some playing a first person shooter game wrote down the play-by-play into book form. The dialogue was funny for awhile. But neither video games, nor this written form are for me.
  • Sci Fyi That you’ve got to read.

    By arrowheadcakelady
    Old Man’s War is the best book I’ve read in a very long time. From the the first chapter I was drawn into the story and I didn’t put the book down until I was finished. This book is fast paced, action packed with humor and emotional content. If you consider yourself a reader, than it is imperative to read this book immediately.
  • Want to be young again after you “retire”?

    By DaveLevy
    The idea of “join the army, see the world” isn’t new. Even the sf addition of “meet interesting things and kill them” isn’t new. But the journey to get there and try and understand how humanity got there and where it is going is fresh and more nuanced than the golden age writers.
  • Nicely done SciFi Diversion

    By NotBrightEnough
    A nicely done science fiction diversion with only moments of techno babble. Principle character was credible without being superhero.
  • A story for older folks

    By Hlestringm
    If you are a bit older and remember science fiction from the 50’s and 60’s you tend to accept this story line better than younger folks. Plus there is a certain level of identity with the older soldier concept. Good story but could have left out some of the gratuitous sex stuff. Might be good enough to read the next in the series.
  • Once You Start...

    By Mecca4BA
    I picked up this as a paperback at a book store in Grand Central Station in NYC. Just a little something to exercise the mind. I did not expect to find such a gem. By the time you get to the action (which doesn’t take long) you’re already wondering if there’s a sequel (which there are several... including one with an interesting twist). I’d love to see this as a movie.

  • This was an interesting read

    By Person 183
    Well now I tried this book and it worked as a great gate keeper to the new world (for me) of science fiction. Although I did go to my nearest old man and suggest the book to him. When I told him the name he wondered if he heard me correctly. So he asked me to write it down, and I gave it to him. He was polite and kindly excused me. Then I was off but then I heard a grunt and guessed that it was him finally figuring the implications. Of what he guessed I meant, then I started hearing tearing. So well this is a difficult book to give to people over sixty who would be considered "old".
