Q: Yesterday was the US’ Independence Day. Share your favorite book with a war in it, or an overthrow of the government.
I’m going with:
I read this for the first time when I was 19 or 20. No idea it was a classic. In fact, I just found out it was published in December of ’84. hey, man, so was I!
The book is a little bit like Starship Troopers. It’s in the future, the war is against giant ant-like aliens. It’s called the Antwar. Awesome action, but mostly it focuses on the psychological effects of war. Felix separates parts of himself, what he calls “the Engine” makes him into an unstoppable killing machine, a tool of war. But the armor records his memories and his thoughts and Jack (who’s a criminal, and somewhat tricked) puts on the armor to uncover the saved data.
Gritty, depressing, powerful.
Alright. So, have a look around, enjoy yourselves. You can follow me on twitter, bloglovin’ or here on wordpress!
