Old Man's War #1

Old Man's War - Book 01

John Perry did two things on his 75th birthday. First he visited his wife's grave. Then he joined the army.

The good news is that humanity finally made it into interstellar space. The bad news is that planets fit to live on are scarce-and aliens willing to fight for them are common. The universe, it turns out, is a hostile place.

So: we fight. To defend Earth (a target for our new enemies, should we let them get close enough) and to stake our own claim to planetary real estate. Far from Earth, the war has gone on for decades: brutal, bloody, unyielding.

Earth itself is a backwater. The bulk of humanity's resources are in the hands of the Colonial Defense Force, which shields the home planet from too much knowledge of the situation. What's known to everybody is that when you reach retirement age, you can join the CDF. They don't want young people; they want people who carry the knowledge and skills of decades of living. You'll be taken off Earth and never allowed to return. You'll serve your time at the front. And if you survive, you'll be given a generous homestead stake of your own, on one of our hard-won colony planets.

John Perry is taking that deal. He has only the vaguest idea what to expect. Because the actual fight, light-years from home, is far, far harder than he can imagine-and what he will become is far stranger.

Sci-fi que discute questões éticas e morais, sem deixar de lado o humor [IG: @epifani

"No meu aniversário de 75 anos fiz duas coisas: visitei o túmulo da minha esposa, depois entrei para o exército. Visitar o túmulo de Kathy foi a menos dramática das duas". Em uma era em que a humanidade já é capaz de realizar viagens interestelares, nos deparamos com a escassez de planetas habitáveis disponíveis e diversos alienígenas lutando por eles. Para se alistar nas Forças Coloniais de Defesa (FCD), defender a Terra e conquistar novos territórios, é necessário ter mais que 75... leia mais
