    First published in 1974 and winner of the 1975 Hugo and Locus awards Forever War by Joe Haldeman kicks assMore than just a book about a futuristic war Haldeman describes a society built around the codependency of the industrial military complex and with a fluid dynamic socio economic culture that is fascinating to watch un

    While it reminded me of Heinlein's Starship Troopers and Avatar especially the beginning where recruits are told about all the things that could kill them and how they likely wouldn't make it back alive Haldeman's Forever War takes a different turn Haldeman's book focuses on a soldier fighting an interstellar war Because our character is traveling to his battles at near light speed when he returns to earth between mis

    Catch 22 is often cited as one of the great books about the futility and inherent paradoxes of war I think this is easily its eual but is often overlooked because it is dismissed as just science fictionBy using the tropes of SF Haldeman vividly illustrates not only the psychological effects on the combatants but also the d

With each book bound in genuine leather and accented with kt gold it′s easy to see why Easton Press is one of our most popular reuests Maybe a generous 25 Just for the overall conceptLet s start with the positive I enjoyed following a main character struggling to adapt to the changes on Earth while he s at war 2 years for him end up being 26 on Earth due to time relativity It only gets worst as the war progresses The rest was a mess for me This book is often mentioned as a classic sci fi and is on so many best sci fi of all time lists To me a classic has to survive the test of time and this book did not age well Like at allI understand that some parts of the book are there to show us that the main character is old fashioned compare to others but oh my was this a frustrating read then unleashed Stargate s eighteen sex starved men on our women compliant and promiscuous by military custom and law but desiring nothing so much as sleepI What I d gotten used to open female homosex in the months since we d left Earth Even stopped resenting the loss of potential partners The men together still gave me a chill thoughOf courseThese are just two uotes out of a dozen other ones I could include The writing style wasn t for me and I didn t care about the characters at all In its defence I m not big on military fiction so the battles bored me but I expected that I just can never get over how little I care about people dying left and right I m not sure if the ending was supposed to be a twist or a deep moral of the story but it was kinda obvious and pretty much already how things seem to be nowadaysOverall a big miss for me

N the market from the best classic novels to science fiction contemporary fiction and countless beautiful collectible multi volume sets I bought and read this book based upon the many glowing reviews I saw on the internet It s heralded as a classic and one of the best Sci Fi books of all time I have to disagreeI liked the concept Scientifically it was intriguing However the story was repetitive and slow The exact same thing kept happening over and over again Set up base Boring Battle many people die Get back on ship Stay in space for a long time Get bored Return to base Go back out RepeatThere were long long stretches where just nothing happened Also the character development was just non existent The enemy was only described in appearance but never described for what they were In fact even the battles with the aliens were dull and lifelessThe protagonist is barely developed He is just a hapless soldier who just wants to get laid on a regular basis And for half the book he has his pick of any woman he wants and apparently has sex almost every night And other than having some difficult command decisions to make we learn virtually nothing about his character I was sorely disappointed by this book and just can t recommend it to anyone
