Audio Book Summary

The universe is a dangerous place in John Scalzi's Old Man's War, the first in The Old Man's War series.
At seventy-five years old, John Perry is after a fresh start - so, naturally, he joins the army. Earth's military machine can transform elderly recruits, restoring their lost youth. But in return, its Colonial Defence Force demands two years of hazardous service in space. This is how Perry finds himself in a new body, crafted from his original DNA. A genetically enhanced and upgraded new body, ready for battle.
But upgrades alone won't keep Perry safe. He'll be fighting for his life on the front line as he defends humanity's colonies from hostile aliens. He'll pay the price for his choices, and he'll discover the universe is even more dangerous than he imagined.

    The idea of ​​the book is cool, but not executed really well for my taste, but there are some cool action sequences that are really nice. I can\'t stand the main character - funny, charming, sociable, everyone loves him, successful in everything, humble, loves his wife forever.... blah blah blah.. BORING! Like, if there is such a wonderful character why write a book. No need for a plot, just drop the wonderful character everywhere and he will always win and defeat the bad guys effortlessly. Boring. The main character does not try and fail, does not learn from mistakes, does not develop... Too many romance scenes are not necessary, in my opinion. The plot would have been complete without them. Overall, it was nice to listen to despite all the unnecessary romantic scenes. Easy going book on my commute. So, if it was unbearable, then I would have stopped and not finish the book, but I did, so that means something.
