  1. As per Alex’s suggestion I read The Forever War this fortnight.

    An interesting read, but far more relevant in the decade that it was written. I think the social context of a generation feeling left behind by social changes as with Vietnam veterans returning to an unrecognisable America (or as extrapolated in this book) isn’t as relevant as the divide we see now between social conservatives and progressives.

    Is there a particular reason you were reading this one?

    1. I’m not sure how quickly I would have picked up the Vietnam context if I hadn’t read the intro – I hope, quite fast, but I’ll never know! I really enjoyed the book but perhaps not as viscerally as I might have in the 70s, or even 80s.

      I read it because I have seen it referenced in a lot of places as a Good Book. I think Jonathan Strahan in particular might have recommended it, and he knows my preferences relatively well.
