    The second part of The Forever War puts things into place for the war to really get underway while only hinting a bit more at the kind of weird scale of it all that's hard to comprehend in some ways. Haldeman's story is one that works a kind of bleak emptiness about it as we're not really trying to empathize with the soldiers and the situation but rather just to understand it. That, combined with Marvano's artwork, may make you feel a bit distant from what's happening but it should make you work harder to really understand the mindset and struggle that they're facing, doing things that they don't want to do while grappling with their mission being a key part to survival of the species. This chapter ramps things up a lot after the introductions and training aspect and Mandella's life is only just starting in this war. Read Full Review

    The Forever War is the anti-Star Wars and Star Trek: pessimistic, bare-bones, cold, brutal. And the horrible thing is, it may be a more realistic depiction of a future space war. I highly recommend it. Read Full Review
