Praise
"Scalzi's astonishingly proficient first novel reads like an original work by the late [Robert Heinlein]....[B]ut Scalzi is not just recycling classic Heinlein. He's working out new twists, variations that startle even as they satisfy....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." (starred review)
"Scalzi's blending of wry humor and futuristic warfare recalls Joe Haldeman's classic, THE FOREVER WAR."
From the Publisher
