Joe Haldeman’s THE FOREVER WAR

When I was in high school, I devoured Ender’s Game and Starship Troopers, but it wasn’t until I’d left graduate school that someone forced me to read The Forever War. Since going back to it, I’ve found that it’s a book that’s grown on me each time I read it. It’s certainly one of the best SF novels that I’ve ever read.

Over on Kirkus Reviews, I’ve gone and taken a look at the background of the novel. Go read Joe Haldeman’s The Forever War.

  1. One of the great anti-war novels that really brought home for me the loneliness and disconnect from home that soldiers feel.

    A novel whose sequel and thematic sequel still can’t touch.
