    A journey of 167,000 lights years begins with...a bar of soap? Fasten your zero gravity restraints for Robert Heinlein's novel of intergalactic adventure, a story that carries teenager Clifford "Kip" Russell from his job as soda jerk to space-suit winner to alien abductee! Along the way Kip is joined by a pint-sized genius named Peewee and an empathetic alien creature known as "the Mother Thing."

    Overall

    I loved this book. It's a great story, and though for "young adults" it speaks to both adults and younger people. It's a lovely story, with great narration. Hard to believe it was written when it was. Heinlein shows a great understanding for the universe as always.

    Story

    Amelia Peabody inherited two things from her father: a considerable fortune and an unbendable will. The first allowed her to indulge in her life's passion. Without the second, the mummy's curse would have made corpses of them all.

    "Great Beginning"
    Overall

    I always love reading Elizabeth Peters, but the audiobook version is far better. Her stories are very imaginative and the narraration never fails to give me a great mental picture.

    This story is also a great beginning of a great story. I always enjoy the descriptions of Victorian life and love the narrarator, Amelia Peabody, who is a wonderful personality.

    Barbara Rosenblatt is an excellent voice for this story as well. Her vocal changes are interesting and distinct - a difficulty in this story with many voices from different ethnicities.
