    Description

    In the near future, Los Angeles is an all but uninhabitable war zone, wracked by crime, violence, pollution and poverty. But above the blighted city, a Utopia has arisen: Todos Santos, a thousand-foot high single-structured city, designed to used state-of-the-art technology to create a completely human-friendly environment, offering its dwellers everything they could want in exchange for their oath of allegiance and their constant surveillance. But there are those who want to see the utopia destroyed, whose answer to tomorrow's best and brightest hope is mindless violence. And they have just entered Todos Santos.

    Fun political science fiction

    This thriller from the early 80's plops you down in a near future LA development with incredibly low crime, responsive government, and community togetherness. It's a paradise for engineering geeks and a good place to raise a family. Unfortunately, not everybody likes how they've gone about it.

    This is one of the few utopian books I've ever enjoyed wholeheartedly. Rereading it all these years later, I'm not quite as thrilled by its libertarian vision, but it's amazing to see how many trends of modern life Niven and Pournelle predicted correctly. (For better or worse.) The fast-moving story still works, too, and most of the science fiction we haven't caught up with. Contains some sex and violence, as thrillers often do.

    I think you'll enjoy your trip to Todos Santos. I know I did.

    It's an entertaining enough listen

    If you could sum up Oath of Fealty in three words, what would they be?

    anachronistic, interesting, futuristic

    What does Jeremy Johnson and Suzanne Toren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They are quite good performers and really bring the characters to life.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No.

    Any additional comments?

    It's a worthwhile read/listen but it's definitely a product of the time it was written.

    Awesome Story

    Excellent tale, but didn't make the translation into audiobook as well as I had hoped, still very enjoyable. Once again, the voices I had put to characters as I read were not quite what the narrators give us.

    I've read this several times.

    Narroator(s) did a great job. The story is great. Niven and Pournelle write well together. I've read other works by both of them and each of them. It's an interesting subject handled intelligently. Some "near future" tech is handled pretty well. The human aspects of the story hold up fine and the character development gets the job done. Fun to read. Fun to listen to while choring. 5 stars.

    Intelligente Science Fiction

    Ein Buch des Autorenduos Niven-Pournelle das man leicht übersieht, denn es gibt keine Aliens, keine Katastrophen oder Sterenschläge. Das Thema hier ist (wie in einigen der älteren Kurzgeschichten von Jerry Pournelle) Technologie und vom umständlichen Staat befreite Wirtschaft als Problemlöser. Die, die daran glauben und gerne damit leben sind im Lehens-Schutzverband (daher der Titel) - aber es gibt auch noch die anderen...
    Gut herausgearbeitet und durchdachte hard/social-SF vom Ende der 70er/Anfang der 80er, also schon etwas älter. Aber brillant gelesen und ein Gewinn für jeden Freund intelligenter Science Fiction
