    Joe Haldeman: Forever Peace

    This is an excellent book: At least a 9/10. Go and read it! Unlike ‘The Forever War’, there are no bug-eyed aliens in this book, just human nature itself. Set in the not too distant future (2043) space travel is still as limited as today, but the book has almost everything else: A...
