Publisher's Summary

They came from deep space. They came to destroy us.
Fifty years ago bloodthirsty aliens devastated the Earth. Most of humanity perished. We fell into darkness.
But now we rise from the ashes. Now we fight back.
Marco Emery was born into the war. After his mother is killed, he joins the Human Defense Force, Earth's ragtag army. Emery must survive basic training, become a soldier, and finally face the aliens in battle.
Against the alien onslaught, Earth stands alone. But we will fight. We will rise. We will win.
If you loved Ender's Game, Starship Troopers, and Old Man's War, you'll love Earthrise, a new military science fiction series. From a USA Today best-selling author.

I JOINED THE ARMY TO DIE

A Liberal in The Army
I found this to be entertaining and the miles melted away as I listened. Yes, it is formulaic and predictable. A lot of books are formulaic, because that is what works. I read a lot of Westerns for that reason. This is a character driven story. We are given a background on most of the characters and I found that very thoughtful. It really made me think in my own life, as to why some people are the way they are.

LOGGERHEAD NOT JARHEAD
The main character, MARCO, wants to be a writer, does not want to fight, but he is drafted. I did not find him to be whiny. The author compares his disgruntle complaints to those of other characters, pointing out that no matter how bad we have it, someone else has it worse. My main complaint would be that they did not go into space. The book has a spaceship on the cover and I like space travel. Like most Military books, this is about boot camp. Unlike most Military books, this has characters with complex personalities. This has some action, but probable not enough to please the hard core action fans.

Kafer is hitting his stride as a narrator and I considered him in the top tier with Bray and Porter.
