The Ghost Brigades (Old Man's War, #2)

The Ghost Brigades (Old Man's War, #2) - John Scalzi 2012 January 27

Scalzi incorporates some of the finest aspects of golden age scifi with a 21st century mindset. That makes his books not just guilt-free, but actually good for you. There's all the making-of-a-perfect-soldier, the training, the tactics, the interesting weapons, and interesting enemies, but that's not all. Because his protagonists are thinking, questioning, and looking for the best solution. Not just tactically in battle (although that's present and well-conceived), but big picture. People here are also trying to solve the really big issues facing all the intelligent space-going races. I was enjoying it so much that half way through I stopped to download the next book, [b:The Last Colony|88071|The Last Colony (Old Man's War #3)|John Scalzi|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1406858062s/88071.jpg|18279847] to the kindle, so that I wouldn't have any delays in carrying on the saga.
