Críticas:

"Though a lot of SF writers are more or less efficiently continuing the tradition of Robert A. Heinlein, Scalzi's astonishingly proficient first novel reads like an original work by the late grand master...This virtuoso debut pays tribute to SF's past while showing that well-worn tropes still can have real zip when they're approached with ingenuity."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) on "Old Man's War" "Solid...[Scalzi] sidesteps most of the cliches of military science fiction, delivers fast-paced scenes of combat and pays attention to the science underpinning his premise." "--San Francisco Chronicle "on "Old Man's War" "Thought-provoking!"--"Entertainment Weekly" on" Old Man's War" "Smartly conceived and thoroughly entertaining, "Old Man's War" is a splendid novel." -"Cleveland Plain Dealer" "Solid...[Scalzi] sidesteps most of the cliches of military science fiction, delivers fast-paced scenes of combat and pays attention to the science underpinning his premise." -"San Francisco"" Chronicle" on "Old Man's War" "Gripping and surpassingly original. It's "Starship Troopers" without the lectures. It's "The Forever War" with better sex. It's funny, it's sad, and it's true." --Cory Doctorow on "Old Man's War" "John Scalzi is a fresh and appealing new voice, and "Old Man's War" is classic SF seen from a modern perspective--a fast-paced tour of a daunting, hostile universe."--Robert Charles Wilson "I enjoyed "Old Man's War "immensely. A space war story with fast action, vivid characters, moral complexity and cool speculative physics, set in a future you "almost" want to live into, and a universe you sincerely hope you don't live inalready."--Ken MacLeod

Reseña del editor:

With his wife dead and buried, and life nearly over at 75, John Perry takes the only logical course of action left: he joins the army. Now better known as the Colonial Defense Force (CDF), Perry's service-of-choice has extended its reach into interstellar space to pave the way for human colonization of other planets while fending off marauding aliens. The CDF has a trick up its sleeve that makes enlistment especially enticing for seniors: the promise of restoring their youth. After bonding with a group of fellow recruits who dub their clique the Old Farts, Perry finds himself in a new body crafted from his original DNA and upgraded for battle, including a brain-implanted computer. But all too quickly the Old Farts are separated, and Perry must fight for his life on various alien-infested battlegrounds. 'Scalzi's astonishingly proficient first novel reads like an original work by the late grand master, Robert A. Heinlein' Publishers Weekly 'Delivers fast-paced scenes of combat, and pays attention to the science underpinning his premise' San Francisco Chronicle
