This is the best SF war novel and best SF title I’ve ever read, period (next to Old Man’s War.) You follow Private William Mandella, a reluctant conscript draftee into an elite military unit. As childish as the plot may sound, this book is far from it. Take Full Metal Jacket and mix it with Sci-Fi and BAM you have this titan in the genre. Even with that said, no matter how much praise this book is given it’ll never be enough.

Jonathan is the Assistant Manager at Barbara's State Street bookstore. He began working as a part-time bookseller in September of 2018 and was promoted to Assistant Manager after a year. Prior to Barbara’s, Jonathan worked for two years as a customer service representative at the Columbia College of Chicago Bookstore. You can usually find Jonathan assisting customers, organizing displays, or receiving shipments. If you find him reading, it’s more then likely a Sci-Fi novel or True Crime.
