I understand that this is the second narrator, and much better than the first. But... I'm sorry, Friday does not sound like she's from New Jersey, at least she doesn't in my head. Hillary should have also gotten some Pacific Northwest English language lessons - Sequim is pronounced squim, not See-quim, for instance. But it is still a good story, for all that it's from Heinlein's hedonism period.

I fell in love with Heinlein almost 30 years ago. In today's world with the rise of gmo's and increase of violence, the world of Friday seems to be where we are heading. She is a lady who finally, like the Velveteen rabbit is loved till she becomes real.
Enjoyable across the board. Heinlein is so easy to read in his conversational style of writing that his books are a shear delight. The story is exciting and thought provoking and the narration is a bonus.
Her numerous escapes from danger.
I needed just a little time to associate the narrator's voice to the character because I had started a different version than that of Ms. Huber but once I did I really appreciated her voice acting skill as she gave each character a unique accent.
An interesting look at what the future could look like. Heinlein imbues Friday with an enjoyably believable woman's perspective. Strong, well done, women of action are refreshing even today. As always, RAH's world building is first rate.
Hillary Huber's performance is first rate, well worth listening to.

Yes! Growing up, the genetics and sciences fascinated me because of this book, and now that I am older, I find other things that I can reflect on.
Yes, but sadly, my commute is too short to :(
Average story, better than average performance
Baldwin's demise and the conclusion.
Somewhat preachy, but several honest and caring scenes. The viewpoint is different from many of his books.
Friday. It was ALL about her
The kind of girl you would love to date but could never marry.
