The Temerare books were pretty good up to a point, but then they became extremely bland and I lost interest. The specific moment was when they head to France with The Thing related to The Plague. It’s all downhill from there.
I’m reading the Old Man’s War series and on The Ghost Brigades. I wanted to talk about how you can see Scalzi’s style developing here or how he’s trying to be inclusive in his writing but a seen in the book I’m in just keeps sticking with me more than those thoughts. War is ugly and, no matter who may be on the morally high ground overall, both sides can commit despicably evil acts to win. I don’t know if I want more or less war books to show that but if feels important to mention.
