Beschreibung

When it was first published over 20 years ago, Joe Haldeman's novel won the Hugo and Nebula awards and was chosen Best Novel in several countries. Today, it is hailed a classic of science fiction that foreshadowed many of the futuristic themes of the 1990s: bionics, sensory manipulation, and time distortion. William Mandella is a soldier in Earth's elite brigade. As the war against the Taurans sends him from galaxy to galaxy, he learns to use protective body shells and sophisticated weapons. He adapts to the cultures and terrains of distant outposts. But with each month in space, years are passing on Earth. Where will he call home when (and if) the Forever War ends?Narrator George Wilson's performance conveys all the imaginative technology and human drama of The Forever War. Set against a backdrop of vivid battle scenes, this absorbing work asks provocative questions about the very nature of war.

Straight mindboggling sci-fi apear to bear rare

but here is one. This is no blown up mini story called space opera...here you get one idea with its possible repercussions and this done very nicly. This book I only recomend, even if its not tech focused as I usually prefere it, here was nothing at all missing. Give it a try if you are searching for not just for entertainment (which you will find here more than enough) and instead look for a real idea worth thinking about in real life...or somthing called "mindboggling".
