    1. Well, while I made it past the point where my reading pal (my husband) quit Terms of Enlistment (36% on Kindle, compared to his 24%), I'm also giving up the ghost on this book. Terms of Enlistment isn't a terrible book. Which is, in and of itself, a sticking point. If it were a better book, or if it were a more hilariously bad book, I'd probably be more inclined to stick with it. But it's not good enough to keep my interest and it's not bad enough to trigger my train-wreck syndrome. What it is, [...]


    2. Okaywow. This one may just go onto my favorites shelfain candymind junk-food at it's finest. I wish I could get hold of every military science fiction fan here and say, "don't miss this one".This book was recommended to me a good while back and it looked good. I ordered it from but since I bought it, I had to move all the library books I had waiting to be read ahead of it. See they had to be returned. So last night I finally started it (even though it's been on my "currently reading list" for so [...]


    3. Surprisingly awesome, clearly-written, endlessly fascinating mil-sf, where it's not enough when just one or two things go wrong and things seem completely out of control, but where the entire population of humanity has to suffer right along with you.Was anyone so bright-eyed and innocent before signing up? Alas, I'm reminded of the shiny adaptation of Starship Troopers when I started getting into this book, and then it seemed to take a turn for the right-wing worst when the fighting against the [...]


    4. This book really had potential with the premise of someone escaping poverty through military service; if there had been any real character development.It was as if every time the main character could have been faced with some adversity to overcome, the author just whisked it away without any challenge. Get into the highly competitive military? No problem, just go to the enlistment center. Basic training can drop any enlistee at the drop of the hat? Push over drill instructors and the protagonist [...]


    5. Andrew Grayson is a "welfare rat" living in a Public Residence Cluster (PRC) which is one of several vast slums in the North American Commonwealth (NAC). The NAC is in an endless cold war with the Sino-Russian Alliance (SRA), and the pressure of the endless expansion of new terraforming projects means that times are tough and acronyms rule the Earth.Ok, acronyms don't rule the Earth. But this is military SF. That means military-grade weaponized acronyms. You have been warned (YHBW).Anyway, Grays [...]


    6. This is another one of those books that I had somehow picked up. I really have no idea how it wound up in my kindle's slush pile of unread books. (To be fair, I have a bit of an problem). Regardless, I picked it up. I was in the mood for something else. From the cover it looked like another 'ships of the line in space' type of book emphasizing desperate ship-to-ship battles in the cold depths of space. I was wrong. Dead wrong. And expectations were well exceeded.Terms of Enlistment follows Andr [...]


    7. Marko Kloos is another one of those self-published SF authors who found an unexpected following, hence my discovering this book as an Audible deal of the day. It was, while not epic or on the level of one of the better works of Heinlein or Pournelle or another big-name military SF author, a nice treat.Terms of Enlistment shows its very obvious Heinlein influences right away - Andrew Grayson is not exactly Johnny Rico, being a slum-dweller who joins the military for three squares and a shot at an [...]


    8. I još jedna knjiga di sam podeljenog mišljenja.Sa jedne strane imamo dosta dobro pisanje sa interesantnim likovim, pričom koja ima dobar tempo i skoro nikada nije dosadno, i glavnog lika koji je odličan narator.Sa druge strane priča koja je ispričana je manje više već poznata i na momente se dobija deja vu osećaj.Tako da sumnjam da ću nastaviti serijal iako je sama knjiga bila zabavna.


    9. This isn't a bad book. It reads well, sets a fast pace, tells an interesting If totally familiar story. It's not breaking any new ground, harking back as far as Heinlein's Starship Troopers.In some future where where humanity has spread out across a couple of dozen stars, Andrew Grayson sees joining the military as a way out of the poverty-stricken ghetto. The Army is fighting wars abroad and civil unrest at home (a dystopian North American alliance), and out in space it's fighting the Chinese f [...]


    10. I've not been doing a great job keeping up with reviews lately. Life, ya know? So I'm keeping this short and real. This was a lot of fun to read/listen to, and a big factor in my enjoyment was the fact that it totally reminded me of Starship Troopers (the movie, not the book--I own the book but I've never read it) and I LOVE Starship Troopers. I rarely re-read or re-watch anything. It's just not in my nature to be sentimental in regards to things like that. But of course there are exceptions. Th [...]


    11. This had been recced to me as good self-published mil-SF in the vein of Starship Troopers, and since I can always use a good military-SF Bildungsroman, I decided to pick this up. Hey, it was cheap. Much like Heinlein, it is compulsively readable; I opened the file intending to read the first couple chapters, and then the next time I looked up it was 4 am and I was halfway through. Yeah. Unfortunately, it also shares one of (for me) the flaws of Heinlein, which is that it's very good at taking yo [...]


    12. Executive Summary: A good, but not great start to this series. I liked it enough to continue on.Audiobook: Luke Daniels is a fantastic narrator as always, however I tend to associate him with lighter/fun type stories, so it took a bit to get used to him narrating a military sci-fi/more serious story.Full ReviewI picked this one up on a daily deal. I'm not a huge military fiction fan, but I like space opera and I was hoping to get some of that here.Since those were my expectations coming in, I fo [...]


    13. If you enjoy the subgenre of military SF in which a loser enlists and makes his way into a career, this one is for you. Engagingly written, super fast paced, sympathetic characters, and believable military, right down to the cadences and the cursing. I meant to read a chapter or two before bed, and ended up reading half the night.


    14. Pretty decent start to a series. Andrew Grayson lives in government housing, basically slums and is looking for a way out. He receives a coveted spot in the armed forces and sees it as his way out. We go through the requisite basic training and while every trainee wants a shot at becoming a pilot or at least a space marine, Grayson ends up assigned to the army which means he stays on earth and quells uprisings around the globe.The basic training section moves a bit slowly but the action picks up [...]


    15. I enjoyed this book a great deal. I have to say that it pays homage quite heavily to Aliens, the movie, but this in no way stops me appreciating it as its own independent piece of work.Its neatly put together and slanted heavily towards the next installment which I am sure is being written as I write this. Five could possibly be a tiny bit to high a score, but for me four is just to low to be completely fair. The military descriptions and terminology are executed in a very confident manor, that [...]


    16. DNF nakon 200 str, imam osjećaj da sam sve ovo već negdje drugdje pročitao, knjiga je wannabe Scalzijevog 'Old Man's Wara', ali je nekako dosadna, glavni lik prolazi kroz nezanimljivi vojni trening koji sam već vidio u tonama drugih knjiga, i sve mu ide i čak nađe djevojku koju bari, a s obzirom da je 'štakor' iz siromašne Bostonske 'tough neighborhood' četvrti, vrlo učeno i inteligentno se zajebava sa svojim zapovjednicima i čita knjige poput Moby Dicka i Srca tame. O ostatku svijeta [...]


    17. Good, straightforward military sci-fi book. Quick read. No deep philosophy about colonizing space, Good vs. Evil, the nature of humanity, etc. Primarily a tale about some ground-pounders shooting some sci-fi weaponry and blowing stuff up. Those readers like me who are veterans will particularly enjoy the protagonist’s journey through basic training and some of the inside jokes about life in the military. I plan to read the next book in the series.


    18. An excellent book! Great action sequences, good POV character, sound world building, enjoyable to read, and well worth your time!


    19. entertaining narrator but banal story that follows the pattern of countless similar others; not sure if/when i will read more in the series


    20. "Of all the metroplexes in the country, Detroit is the worst."I'm going to have a problem with a book when I find a sentence like that in it. Why is it always Detroit? Hasn't Detroit suffered enough? Hundreds of years in the future, Detroit STILL is the poorest, most violent city in North America? Why can't the shitty metroplex be Winnipeg? Or Saint Louis? Or Houston?Despite having pissed off this girl from the D, the book did have some redeeming qualities. As others have mentioned, the action s [...]


    21. delivreenlivres/20 Un premier tome vraiment très classique mais très solide qui donne vraiment envie d'en lire plus sur les aventures du héros !Quand on est né, comme Andrew Grayson, dans les banlieues surpeuplées d'une des mégalopoles du North American Commonwealth ou le taux de chômage avoisine les 100% et ou tout le monde ne vit que de petits trafics et aux frais de l'état, on n'a que deux façon de s'en sortir et de faire quelque chose de sa vie.La première est de gagner la loterie [...]


    22. Sometimes I was a bit hesitant about whether I liked this book or not but in the end I have to say that I liked it. It is the first in a series so I guess a lot depends on how the series develops but for now I think would say that it is a good start.The book centers around Andrew Grayson who is a so called “welfare rat”. It seems that it is a popular concept today, that people will resort to live off government handouts, among authors writing about dystopian futures. I guess it is an easy co [...]


    23. The End of the BeginningMilitary book intrigue meSci-Fi Military book are my shit! I need book twoon!!!


    24. I quit at the 24% mark. Not a lot had happened up through that point. The protagonist, Andrew, went through basic training and received his assignment. Prior to enlisting, he lived in a Boston area Public Residence Cluster, which seems to be a futuristic version of the projects. Other than that, it’s just an expository dump of military life in 2108 North America. There is no sense of what actual life is like, what the government is up to, or who the enemy is. There’s just nothing…except th [...]


    25. Dear Marko,First of all, welcome to the list of my favorite authors. Here, have a drink. If your next books are as good as the first one, you can even join the likes of Martin and Corey in the elite section (I totally just made that up).Anywho, thanks for writing such a page-turning book with lots of great actions. I see some Heinlein influence and noticed lots of references to both military history (Shughart and the drop ship thing, very Mogadishu) and also other sci-fi books (Shrike ships!). M [...]


    26. This wasn't my typical type of read, but I saw it offered as a kindleunlimited and decided to give it a try. The story did have potential, but I never really connected to the storyline or with any of the characters. It was all just so "blah" and lacked depth. It just as if the hero went on one excursion after another, and yet the suspense and action felt weak? I had no moments of great anticipation. As for the genre, this one never at any point felt like a Sci-Fi, Fantasy, or even Dystopia type [...]


    27. A good solid military SF novel where a boy becomes a man. First time novelist Marko Kloos hits a home run with this tale about Andrew Grayson. Written in the vein of Heinlein.Interesting take on how welfare citizens see their options. Try to get a lottery ticket to be a colonist, join the military, or live in welfare housing on the government dole for the rest of your life.Andrew Grayson's life is portrayed from his leave taking of his family, to his training, to the start of his military career [...]


    28. Surprisingly good Space Marine type military Sci-Fi. I enjoyed it very much. Had many of the hallmarks I enjoy from books like John Scalzi's Old Man's War (luckily Kloos is a MUCH better writer), and John Ringo. Likable characters, some decent humour, interesting aliens. Good military Sci-Fi with a peppering of social commentary. I'm already hunting down the sequel.



    29. This is a mostly solid military sci fi story but the ending left me sort of "meh". My rating is 3.75. Andrew Grayson is a 17 year old welfare rat in a dysotpian world where there is a far divide between the few rich, the few upper class and the multitude of depressed, going nowhere welfare class. Andrew decides the only way out is to enlist in the service and hope he can make his way to a future rather than death because even in the service the lower class are considered expendable. Boot camp is [...]
