||Absolutely, never said otherwise.

||Hell, Forever War is a blatant metephor on the Vietnam War anf it's one of the most acclaimed SF novels of all time.
SF is about exploring who humans are and who we might become.
||Now that I think about it, I think 75% of the book is just his mind covering up for the insanity he was slowly falling into after witnessing the horrors of war.
||I love it, but I still prefer the poverty of the Marmeladov family in Crime and Punishment over the relative exuberance of Nastasya.
||I hated it so much, and was pissed I'd wasted 75 cents and a half-hour of my life on relentlessly bland tripe, that I chucked it at the wall.
||Death should serve a purpose that's thematically consistent with the rest of the book, and the sudden decision to portray the horrors of war felt jarring and amateurish.
||Maybe it's the instant gratification of social media but the idea of picking a book up bores the hell out of me now, and I really hate it because I feel so much less intelligent than I used to.
||It's awful if you've read any science fiction written in the last 10 years.
The characters are one dimensional - There are multiple scenes where the main villain sits talking about how evil he is.
||I liked the first two okay but after that they really devolved into just terrible writing, tropes and rape fantasies.
||Some people are really upset that there won't be as much angry racism in the story.
