The year is 2108, and the North American Commonwealth is bursting at the seams. For welfare rats like Andrew Grayson, there are only two ways out of the crime-ridden and filthy welfare tenements, where you’re restricted to 2,000 calories of badly flavored soy every day. You can hope to win the lottery and draw a ticket on a colony ship settling off-world, or you can join the service. With the colony lottery a pipe dream, Andrew chooses to enlist in the armed forces for a shot at real food, a retirement bonus, and maybe a ticket off Earth. But as he starts a career of supposed privilege, he soon learns that the good food and decent health care come at a steep price…and that the settled galaxy holds far greater dangers than military bureaucrats or the gangs that rule the slums.
The debut novel from Marko Kloos, Terms of Enlistment is a new addition to the great military sci-fi tradition of Robert Heinlein, Joe Haldeman, and John Scalzi.

Halten Sie die Hörbuch-Ausgabe von Terms of Enlistment für besser als das Buch?

Any audiobook lives on its performance, and Luke Daniels has a rock solid delivery. This is no radioplay, obviously, but every character has his or her own personality.

Welche Figur hat Ihnen am besten gefallen? Warum?

The novel centers around Andrew Grayson, a kid from the OK-ish part of a really bad town. We are slowly but thoroughly introduced to a not so distant dystopia growing ever more hellish. From civilian to private Grayson our hero goes through a lot of change, and manages to scrape by with that little bit of luck due a central character.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Overall this is very obviously the first installment of a surprisingly well fleshed out world. Culminating in the standardized military scifi hooray final, albeit with enough investment in character development to make us actually care.

A solid beginning and stepping stone for a great series in the making.
