At seventy-five years old, John Perry is after a fresh start - so, naturally, he joins the army. Earth's military machine can transform elderly recruits, restoring their lost youth. But in return, its Colonial Defence Force demands two years of hazardous service in space. This is how Perry finds himself in a new body, crafted from his original DNA. A genetically enhanced and upgraded new body, ready for battle.

But upgrades alone won't keep Perry safe. He'll be fighting for his life on the front line as he defends humanity's colonies from hostile aliens. He'll pay the price for his choices, and he'll discover the universe is even more dangerous than he imagined.

Recenzii

" Though a lot of SF writers are more or less efficiently continuing the tradition of Robert A. Heinlein, Scalzi' s astonishingly proficient first novel reads like an original work by the late grand master...This virtuoso debut pays tribute to SF' s past while showing that well-worn tropes still can have real zip when they' re approached with ingenuity."
--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) on "Old Man' s War"
" Solid... [Scalzi] sidesteps most of the cliches of military science fiction, delivers fast-paced scenes of combat and pays attention to the science underpinning his premise."
"--San Francisco Chronicle "on "Old Man' s War"
" Thought-provoking!"
--"Entertainment Weekly" on" Old Man' s War"
" Smartly conceived and thoroughly entertaining, "Old Man' s War" is a splendid novel."
- "Cleveland Plain Dealer"
" Solid... [Scalzi] sidesteps most of the cliches of military science fiction, delivers fast-paced scenes of combat and pays attention to the science underpinning his premise."
- "San Francisco"" Chronicle" on "Old Man' s War"
"Gripping and surpassingly original. It's "Starship Troopers" without the lectures. It's "The Forever War" with better sex. It's funny, it's sad, and it's true."
--Cory Doctorow on "Old Man' s War"
"John Scalzi is a fresh and appealing new voice, and "Old Man's War" is classic SF seen from a modern perspective--a fast-paced tour of a daunting, hostile universe."
--Robert Charles Wilson
" I enjoyed "OldMan's War "immensely. A space war story with fast action, vivid characters, moral complexity and cool speculative physics, set in a future you "almost" want to live into, and a universe you sincerely hope you don't live in already."
--Ken MacLeod
