An amazing read.
There narrator is great, but there's a few annoying points where the audio changes, the quality drops and the narrator even changes, for a few seconds.
couldn't make it through the first chapter. The reader was slow and boring. Ill have to buy the physical copy.
I absolutely love Robert Heinlein. He uses science fiction as a mechanism to make you think without some of the existing day to day biases we have. While many of his ideas are "out there" (especially seeing as he wrote in the 50's and 60's), he really does make me think.
The main character really is the main character, but he is easy to identify with. He is not arrogant, and he is written as an innocent, and the reader can grow with him.
Absolutely not. This was horrible. The guy could read x-rated stories and make them boring. His tones were off, there were random pauses, he was unable to do any voices for character which lead to some confusion during dialogue. It ruined the whole book.
I would have cut everything that Lloyd James reads, fired him, and hired someone in the 6th grade to replace him. It would be a marked improvement.
If this is the quality one can expect from audible, I'm cancelling my subscription.
audio performance was..... weird and distracting. like bad 1940s interloods. re do please because this book might be slightly sexist and homo-erotic, but it make sense in a military stand point.
I enjoyed the book very much, with its accurate accounts of how it is during military training and its references that were quite eerily true about the times of today. I am glad to have read this book and like my friend who recommended this book to me, I will recommend it to someone else.
I've always loved this book. If you only know of it from the movie then you know nothing. If nothing else, chapter 8 explains what would be 50+ years after its writing to be almost a completely accurate view of our world today.
Having said that, the audio quality is fair and the reader is OK. You get the story and most of the meaning, but there are drops in the audio that one might find annoying.
None better. The best of the best. Presents a philosophy that we should all live by.
I'm a soldier who likes fantasy novels
Great but there were a few points where the audio was weird. Still would recommend.
