it was ok
bookshelves: 2010, audiobooks, sci-fi-fantasy, series, add-half-a-star
Read from June 29 to July 01, 2010

Perfectly enjoyable, fairly shallow retread of the themes expressed in Old Man's War. Plus one evil mastermind who gives a big third-act villain speech, sealing his doom, instead of just keeping his stupid mouth shut. The lead character is a cypher (literally) and not nearly as much fun as the old man from book one.

I'd go on to book three but my library is all out of audiobooks and I don't think I'd get too far trying to actually read one.

Ian How is the audio narration? I'm reading the print version now. Just finished Old Dude's War and it was okay. Fun and somewhat interesting but certainly not great.
