Terms of Enlistment (Frontlines) by Marko Kloos (Book 2013)

I thought this book was fantastic. It was a space opera of sorts, but it totally followed around one character as he went through boot camp, training, and the start of his futuristic military life.

Why was it so good? Detail and pace. The author totally went into lots of detail with regards to the main character and his daily and weekly tribulations. Other books would've rushed through certain parts or take too much time explaining unnecessary aspects of the setting, but Mr. Kloos made the story flow. I totally felt like I was living the intro to a enlisted lifestyle.

Of course it was a bonus that the main character was fairly likable and the supporting characters were also good as well. But props totally goes out to this author...he can definitely write.
