I debated whether to go with 3 or 4 stars for Ghost Brigades. I did really enjoy it, thought not quite as much as Old Man's War. Early on it feels a bit of a mirror to John Perry's experience in OMW, which was interesting. Once past that, in the middle of the book, I found myself occasionally (very occasionally) skimming paragraphs because I wanted the pacing to move a bit faster. The whole storyline is very intriguing, so I kept going even though I wasn't in love with the middle of the book. Since I did love OMW so much, the ending here was totally worth it and is what made me decide to go with 4 stars. Eager to continue reading more of this series.
