The thing that makes this a standout book is Haldeman’s uncanny ability to suggest social changes under different circumstances. From a society living 50 years from now that lives communally and is embarrassed by the idea of personal property, to one in 300 years that has mainstreamed homosexuality to control the population and labels straight people queer, to the final, mind-bending conclusion, each scenario seems both foreign and ultimately plausible. In addition, the odd nature of the romance between two time-accelerating soldiers is unique and ultimately touching.
