    Inhaltsangabe

    Retired from his fighting days, John Perry is now village ombudsman for a human colony on distant Huckleberry. With his wife, former Special Forces warrior Jane Sagan, he farms several acres, adjudicates local disputes, and enjoys watching his adopted daughter grow up.

    That is, until his and Jane's past reaches out to bring them back into the game - as leaders of a new human colony, to be peopled by settlers from all the major human worlds, for a deep political purpose that will put Perry and Sagan back in the thick of interstellar politics, betrayal, and war.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Scalzi's captivating blend of off-world adventure and political intrigue remains consistently engaging." ( Booklist)
    "The sequel to Old Man's War combines taut military action with keen insights into the moral issues revolving around developing technologies. Scalzi has a finely tuned sense of balance between personal drama and the 'big picture'....Highly recommended." ( Library Journal)

    He said - she said - I said - Jane said - I said

    A nice and smooth flowing story with some unexpected plot twists.
    The narrator sounds a bit choppy at times, especially when reading dialogues.
    But this may be Scalzi's fault. He has no variation at all in the verbs he uses to describe ongoing conversations.
    ... I said ... Jane said ... I said ... she said ... I said ... Jane said ... and so on and so on, as ... I said ...
    This makes listening to the story sometimes really really tedious and even annoying.
    With respect to narrating conversations - some third graders do better.

    Ok but the First Book was Reallöhne the best of it

    The Story of our 2 Heros, Jane and John and (joe) goes on. The action goes mostly around our Heros, there are not any more the war heroes in action.
    I liked the first book and also the second wasn't really bad, since the story is going on with some turn arounds, I would say it's a good choice to go on with part 3 of "old mans war"
