The Forever War and the New Preston/Child Novel

I just finished reading THE FOREVER WAR by Joseph Haldeman.  This is one of those classic sci-fi novels I had already heard about, and it’s been sitting on my shelf for years.  Aside from some glaring ‘of its time’ aspects, like people arbitrarily choosing to become homosexual, it was a very different and interesting look at the future.  I did find the middle section showing how horrible life becomes on Earth to be a little trying to get through.  He definitely had some out of the box ideas about future warfare, and some surprisingly prophetic ones as well.

I also read CRIMSON SHORE, the newest Pendergast novel from Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.  It was a pretty good standalone story, though it’s probably going to be one of those books that’s thrilling the first time and average the next time round.  It did end on a wonderful cliffhanger and I can’t wait for the next book!
