Old Man's War by John Scalzi
Indeed, if you follow this blog this title may sound familiar to you. I recommended this book two years ago. Since then I've often thought about reading it again. When a gift card fell into my lap I decided to add it to my little bundle of purchases because this is the kind of book I can see myself reading multiple times - and that is one of my top criteria for purchasing a book. Scalzi is a skilled writer who can spin an interesting tale that will draw reactions from the reader - whether those reactions are laughter or worry for the characters. You should pick this one up if you love a good science fiction book. Indeed, I'm awaiting my chance to snag his newest book, Redshirts because it looks like a great deal of fun. And if it's anything like Scalzi's other works, then I'm sure I'm in for a good time.
