really liked it

Old Man's War is kinda like Ender's Game, but with old people instead of kids. The premise is that once Earth-born humans reach age 75, they can enlist in the Colonial Defense Forces, who protect human colonists throughout the universe. The perks include getting a new body, but the downside is that you're probably going to get killed. The universe is a rough place. There were a lot of similarities to Ender's Game, and even Starship Troopers, but Old Man's War definitely holds its own as an entertaining read.
