Rating: 4 out of 5

Another book from the humble bundle I bought last year. After finishing Sophie’s World I wanted something simple, and non-thinky to read. This was perfect for that.

It’s a good story which kept me engaged and which I enjoyed reading. It’s a futuristic story, where the over 75s are the soldiers of off-world battles and we follow the progress of John, one such 75 year old.

The characters are what gives this story 4 stars from me. Even those we only meet for a few pages, are described well enough for me to get an idea of who they are, and what they stand for. And there are a wide array of perspectives covered.
