    Disappointed in the language

    The story could have been told without the crude language. I get the typical "reality" argument, but there is also the fact that a writer, with a little more work, can portray a character in the same way without turning off his readers. I really enjoyed the other episodes and hope the ones to come aren't this crude.

    The fourth installment brings us to Albert Birnbaum, a radio tal

    The fourth installment brings us to Albert Birnbaum, a radio talk show host spiraling downward in his career. He's offered a chance to resurect that and more but at what cost?

    This brings the recent stories to light by showing the antagonist's role in things and how they can manipulate those to their needs. I really enjoyed this one despite it being another quick read (35 minutes).

    I have yet to read anything in the Old Man's War despite these short chapters within the Human Division. I'm getting familiar with things as they go and it has me glued to each new installment. I actually can't wait for this to conclude so I can start reading all the other parts, but until then I'll steer the pace and keep waiting each Tuesday for more.

    Small jab in the gut

    I love the old man's war universe, but this episode felt like a subtle jab to those who happen to like consevative talk radio. I really hoped to find out what happened to Harry.
