Books and stuff? Those things you can't click to switch pages. And sorry kiddies, generally no pictures either.

Scalzi / Old Man's War

Post by nijimeijer »

Just finished The Last Colony, the third book in Scalzi's Old Man War trilogy.

It was a fun little trilogy. I wish he wouldn't have tried for the sequels; the first book was great standalone. The sequels only cheapened the whole thing. Still, I liked it.

The first book was an effective Starship Troopers/Forever War clone, and this last one was also very Heinlein; more like his juveniles, or his novella The Tale of the Adopted Daughter, from Time Enough For Love.

The second book isn't really worth mentioning much. It's a bridging novel only.

Whatcha reading?

Did a quick re-read of The Changing Land, the second Dilvish book by Zelazny. MAN I wish that guy was still alive and writing. His books are so unique.

Anyone who ever loved the Mad Max films should do themselves a favor and read Damnation Alley.

I think I'm going to pick up Feist's latest later this week, assuming my wife permits me the luxury of a hardcover.

Please Remy?
