OLD MAN'S WAR

I finished Old Man's War last night. If you like the SF, I would suggest this book. I enjoyed it a lot. It reads really quickly for just over 300 pages. It does move slow at some places especially when the writer tries to explain how certain things work. I come from the George Lucas school of SF. Lucas says in the commentary for Episode IV that we did not want to explain anything to the viewer, that way it was easier to except that something was possible if you did not force them to think about it. That said I highly recommend it. The writer is also a blogger.
