Great Listen

Well made Sci-Fi world with characters to match and an appropriate threat of humanity being wiped out ( this is pointed out early on, no spoiler ).

The narrater does a good job as well which is a big thing for me, I'm away to start the second book soon.

"Respect to the fallen."

Life was good. Rev was seventeen, soon to follow his step father into the Crystal build training when a minor traffic infringement had him brought before the judge. Expecting a fine, perhaps some sort of community service, he was horrified to find himself sentenced, without appeal, to a term of military service instead, time unspecified, to begin as soon as his eighteenth birthday had passed. This book is the story of his induction into the Marines and his early combat assignments.

The training aspect was enjoyable, though it has been done better in, for example, Terms of Enlistment by Marko Kloos, and the subsequent battles were novel, well written and engaging. Narration was by Jeffrey Kafer, always a pleasure to hear. The first of an already substantial series, I am not sure if I will continue despite enjoying this initial book - the characters did not quite appeal sufficiently to ensure my commitment. But it was a good story for those for whom military action holds more appeal than the actual science friction
