Old Man's War by John Scalzi

"Finally, forget everything except to follow orders, kill anything that's not human and stay alive"

Forget retiring quietly into your twilight years. At the age of 75, John Perry signs up to go fight in an intergalactic war, with a revamped body and a whole new lease on life. After the death of his wife, the thought of facing off against untold alien enemies in far off galaxies holds a certain appeal for the ageing writer.

Green skin, cats eyes and a revamped libido are just some of the features of John's new body, along with a helpful voice in his head called "Asshole".
Basic training, nifty weaponry and boom its time for non stop action!

This is sci-fi with a great mix of science, guns and aliens, along with a novel and exciting way of avoiding heading to a nursing home. 5 out of 5 - get a copy in a galaxy near you.
