Good writing, great pace but the ending is terrible. I do not like to spend hours reading a book and realize at that the author just did not know how to finish that story.

FOREVER PEACE started off great - the first half set up an interesting world and protagonist. But half way through it turned into a conspiracy thriller and it lost me. It's not that I needed it to be filled with action and violence, but I did want to be compelled by the plot, which I was not. Seems others on here liked it more than I did so don't let my opinion dissuade you - but I did not find this to be the gripping, fast-paced sci-fi book I was wanted it to be. I wanted to like it more.

When I first started to read this novel I was getting interested in the beginning up to the halfway mark. Then a really good twist to the novel that makes me want to read more. Needless to say I will not ruin it for you. However toward the near end of this great plot to the story I find it to be rush on through very very quickly. I did not like the endgame of this novel and found it to be a little bit distasteful.

The Forever War novel has a better ending to it. I know this novel is suppose to be set in a different univers. But the story could have been a countdown to total destruction. That I would love to read because let face it not all storylines have a happy ending.

The main character is a soldier in the not so distant future. The world is primarily split between the developed countries and the have-nots. A perpetual state of low-intensity warfare, terrorist attacks and punitive raids rage between the developed countries and the 3rd world (sound familiar?). The primary weapon used by the rich nations are nearly indestructable robots controlled remotely by teams of soldiers jacked into cooperative networks.
This is not a sequel to 'Forever War'. The two novels are set in completely different universes. Violent conflict with the 'other' and the intense fellowship of soldiers fighting together are two of the themes both books share. As in 'Forever War', peace can only come in 'Forever Peace' when the Human Race cease to be Human.
If you want to read a good SciFi novel read 'Forever Peace'. If you want to read a great and classic SciFi novel read 'Forever War'.

I have never read Haldeman before. The only thing I knew he is considered a good writer, so I decided to read a sf novel from a good author. However, I wonder why this book won the Nebula Award. Weren't there better books ?
Don't misunderstand me. Forever peace is well written and interisting. The first part of the book is good and promising, but after some chapters the story got lost in a silly love affair, too many characters and an unbeleivable peace proposal.
It must be note Haldeman's knowledge of the south frontier of RIO GRANDE. I think Haldeman made a good description given his origin.
There are better SF books.

i remembered reading a book called "all my sins remembered" (AMSR) as a boy of 11 or 12. at that age i was pretty much into SF what with star_wars (later to be retitled 'episode IV a new hope'), 2001 a space Odessey Battlestar Galactica on TV, Star Trek - original series, close encounters of the 3rd kind. AMSR struck something like a bell in me, it was to me a different sort of SF, very well remembered sort of SF.
getting back to 'Forever Peace'. fast forward to some 20 years on i read it after 'Forever War' which i first came across on a dark horse comic publication. this was a long time ago - about 4 years ago. so what business do i have writing a review about it now? i can talk about the impression FP had on me just like AMSR did. like drinking good hot coffee.
the message is often the same: the numbing senselessness of war on the very immediate personnal level. fighters fought because they had to. call it fate or karma. there is often no right or wrong but there are the fortunate and the unfortunate, the quick and the dead, the smart and the stupid, and caught in between the rough stuffs and the really rough stuffs is love, um, isn't it like in the office this morning? maybe not and well, i'm not a soldier but i don't have to be one to appreciate books on the subject or know what the writer is saying.

I am a big fan of THE FOREVER WAR, but this "prequel" is highly disappointing, especially if you were expecting much more (like me) based on your love of WAR. Like another reviewer stated, the first third of the book is what makes the novel OK overall: The planet is essentially locked in a First vs. Third World conflict, as technology has made the former's society a "universal welfare state" due to "nanoforges," which can essentially make anything. Want in the First World has been expunged. However, the Third World has no (or little) access to the nanoforges, and has launched a global guerrilla war as a result (or so it seemed to me). However, it's pretty obvious that Haldeman wants to place blame on the North (First World) as unwilling to share its monopoly on the nanotech, and demonstrates this not-so subtlely throughout the first third of the book. (It was interesting to read his knowledge of Costa Rica as that's my second home.) Implications that the North planned nuclear destruction of its own city and other conspiracies are numerous. Maybe Haldeman's Vietnam experience is responsible for this, and is understandable.
I was disappointed by what seemed Haldeman's favorable position towards the ultimate "peace." Forcible brain-washing? Come ON! It says something that I found myself agreeing w/the contemptible Ingram in that the "humanizing" procedure "takes away our humanity!" As another reviewer said, it's incredible that the biggest dissenters to the "humanizing" would be some fringe rightist religious cult. No way, man. I'd be right in there protesting too.
I thought the side premise of the Jupiter Project was intriguing; I actually found myself wishing more would be elaborated on that. Oh well.
