To listen to a great book while I knit is heaven on earth.
I have listened to many of John Scalzi's novels. I enjoy the way he usually blends fiction with a parable, that gives us another view point to consider. He missed this time. He delves briefly with parallel universe and with genetics, but nothing is really developed. Too much time is spent with battles for my tastes. Enjoyable but empty .
This tells the tale where of a future where age no longer be the end, not if you willing to fight humanities enemies in an endless war. This is military SciFi that sings and is a solid read.

I was very pleasantly surprised by this novel, it surpassed expectations and I cannot recommend it higher to anyone interested. Filled with well rounded characters you quickly come to care about along with an action packed tale that leaves no loose ends. If you want to listen to a unique and highly plausible Sci-Fi adventure, look no further!
The book was entertaining but not greatly written or voiced. I'd say it's like young adult level. The sci-fi is not unique but well embedded. Overall 3 stars.
I won't lie - I have put off this series time and again, thinking it was probably cute, but not something I could really sink my teeth into... I was wrong. Didn't even wait to finish the first book before I ordered the rest.
