Book Review — The Ghost Brigades (Old Man’s War #2) by John Scalzi

The Ghost Brigades (Old Man's War, #2)The Ghost Brigades by John Scalzi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you’re a fan of Scalzi’s writing—and his humour—you’ll like this book!

On the surface, it may seem like a light, easy read, but there are quite a few interesting social commentaries about humans, rationality, purpose, and how we think.

And really, what better way to tackle these issues than in an incredibly entertaining story set in an equally fascinating world?

My only minor gripe is that there are a lot of info dumps not attached to any particular POV. I guess I’ve been reading a lot of tight third- or first-person stories lately, but I prefer stories where the only information we get as readers come from the eyes of characters.
