Summary

Jane Sagan: Soldier. Killer. Lover. Dreamer. In John Scalzi's best-selling Old Man's War series of science-fiction novels, we see this warrior woman as the other characters see her: silent and strong, from the outside. But now The Sagan Diary shows us Sagan from another point of view - her own. As she prepares to leave military life and join her new husband and adopted daughter on a colony world, Sagan reflects on her life, in her own words - recalling friends, battles, and experiences; illustrating all the violence and wonder of her times; trying to fit "an entire life into this compressed space".For fans of Scalzi's works, it's an intimate and surprising glimpse into one of his most popular characters. As read by Stephanie Wolfe, it's unlike any other science-fiction story you'll hear this year.

Passive tense, introspective and a tad boring.

I love Scalzi and his world. It's generally action filled, humorous and insightful. This was more a tale of someone saying 'I'm different ... I can love' but it was hard to connect with either the character or world.

It's a Poem

Any additional comments?

This is a poem about life and a love letter in book form. If you're looking for plot and action, skip this book. If youre looking for some amazing writing and thought provoking analogies this will fit it nicely after the ghost brigades.

Not Sci Fi and not Poetry

I really liked Old Mans War and most of the rest of the series, but this had no story, no action, and the only Sci Fi was second hand. This is a short story length diary entry monologue by Jane about life, love, killing and death. Maybe (just maybe) if I had just finished Old Mans War yesterday, I might have found the references to that story compelling. I doubt it. It takes really good prose to support a format like this. Proust yes, Scalzi not yet. This is not at all bad, but the writing is just not up to this otherwise boring format. I can’t think of anyone I would recommend this to. If you just finished The Old Mans War and really would like to know Jane’s deep internal longings, well. I would read Old Mans War again, but maybe some people would enjoy The Sagan Diary.
