Excellent work. If anything it expands on both the universe and the depth of Old Man's War. If the first book was a rousing war tale, this was a more introspective insight into what makes us human in the midst of the inhumanity of war.

Amid all the techno-babble about DNA Scalzi erred on what seems to be the latest thinking on "junk DNA", that is, that it's not junk. It's a minor quibble which in no way imperils the story. Assumedly, the science of that day would be able to still get everything coded in as needed, to fold the right ways, and still save many millions of base pairs.
