I've been listening to John Scalzi's Old Man's War, the first in the series by the same name, on audiobook. It is, as expected, fantastic. Fans of hard sci fi are sure to love it.Scalzi, the mind behind Star Gate Universe, successfully blends the cold logic of military science fiction with the emotionally driven character drama he brought to SGU. This is a mix that could go horribly wrong, but Scalzi gets it right. The only thing I would change is the long build-up, but even that isn't terrible. As a side note, I am terribly sad that I did not get to meet Scalzi at ALA this year, but I hope I will get to in the future. Whether you read it or listen to it, Old Man's War is a fantastic story. I would recommend this as a great audiobook to listen to while traveling. I will be picking up the next book in the series soon.
