My favorite Sci-Fi so far. Very enjoyable right from the start.
All. Great character interactions.
Recommend it to everyone who occasionally feels their age. It's a great escape to your youth.
Entirely plausible given recent direction of scientific advances.
His tone and variations gave me an instant grasp on many of the characters.
yes, don't want to spoil it for others.
The universe rearranges itself to accomodate your picture of reality.
I enjoyed this story as much as I have enjoyed all of John Scalzi's stories. Lots to think about in this one.
For those who loved the Forever War, or Starship Troopers, or even Startide Rising, this is a must book. While the space opera setting is standard, almost to the point of distraction, and the military memes have all been seen before, Scalzi's core twist, of old people fighting a war, freshens them up just enough to keep things going, especially when confronted with child warriors. Good science fiction makes you think and relate to current times without rubbing your nose in it. Scalzi makes it fun and a great read.
the books has some entertainment value but is not funny , creative or memorable.
I would sign up with CDF without a second thought, even knowing what I know. I really want a Brain Pal! The whole series is really great.

Yes, Any fan of Starship Troopers will find a new love with this series
While his performance is stellar, parts of the story were bogged down with a lot of he said He and I said's
Turning 75 is only the beginning
I would recommend this to friends that don't get hung up on every little detail. It's science fiction that rightly spends more time dealing with the story than detailing every background process and making that believable. There is a great sense of humor throughout the book that doesn't overpower.
The main characters first "meeting" with an internal piece of equipment. I was on the treadmill and almost giggled myself off it.
The first combat scene was well done.
I didn't plan on wanting to, but after I started this I found myself finding time to listen to more. After I finished this I have went on to other books Scalzi has written in this series and this universe.
I have listened and chortled and smiled through almost all of John Scalzi twisted and wry novels, but this one has out done the others. Not so much funny as touching. Wonderful adventure. EXCELLENT narration. Can not wait to hear the rest of the series. I loved this book so much I probably will by a paper or electronic copy to keep.
I have been an Audible member since 1998 and have listened to over 400 books. This ranks as one of my top 10 favorites.
All the characters.
multiple moments though out the bood.
Just buy it and enjoy. You will not be disappointed.
