Book Review: Old Man's War by John Scalzi

Old Man's War (Old Man's War, #1)
by John Scalzi

Old Man's War is one of the first adult sci-fi I've ever read (could be the first one too) and it was pure awesomeness. John Scalzi managed to create a setting and characters that really made me get lost in the story.

This is the story of John Perry, a 75-year-old who decides to join the Colonial Defense Force. It seems like people managed to colonize other galaxies but they are not the only ones and in order to protect their colonies and create new ones they need a army of 75-year-olds modified people from Earth to fight for them. John, along with over a hundred more people embark in this unforgettable journey. They get through tests, they get a new modified body (with green skin nonetheless) and join the CDF.

John Scalzi did an amazing job with the science in this book. I love math and computers and anything that has to do with science so I loved reading about what the colonies created and how they traveled and fought. Jumping from spaceship to spaceship, fighting against alien species, landing in new planets, this book was perfection. I just can't wait to read the next one.
