Old Man's War by John Scalzi
When you turn 65 years of age you have the option to join the military. Not the military on earth, but the Colonial Defense Forces (CDF) who protect our colonies on various planets from threatening alien species. I know you're wondering, "when I'm 65! But I'll be too old?" Well the CDF has a solution for that, they can make you younger and keep all the wisdom and knowledge of your 65 years!
This is John Scalzi's first novel and I loved it. His writing style was fun and easy, his description of this future world very plausible, and the technology he created was fun and I want my BrainPal installed now (read the book and you will see why).
Great read for all sci-fi lovers.
