For Those Looking for a Truly Far-Out Retirement Plan...
on July 29, 2016
I'm glad I finally got around to reading this one after enjoying "Redshirts" and "Lock In". It was fun to jump in and feel the author developing his trademark mix of self-deprecating humour and poignant humanity.
Those who are looking for a credibly "hard" sci-fi adventure here will be disappointed, nor are there the mind-bending twists I was half-expecting during the first third, but it mixes military sci fi competently with a thoughtful meditation on the meaning of getting older, life, and everything.
But why did they have to be green?
