The Forever War

The Forever WarThe Forever War by Joe Haldeman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An excellent story, but I think my expectations were a little too high, given the reputation of the book, and the way John Scalzi‘s introduction made me think it was paralleled by Old Man’s War more closely than it actually was.

I’m tempted to sit down and reread both Old Man’s War and Starship Troopers; the similarities between them, and the differences rooted in the decades between their authors, would make for an interesting Master’s thesis.
