    Farmer In The Sky is a 1953 science fiction novel by Robert A. Heinlein about a teenage boy who emigrates with his family to Jupiter's moon Ganymede, which is in the process of being terraformed. A condensed version of the novel was published in serial form in 1950 in Boys' Life magazine (August, September, October, November), under the title "Satellite Scout".

    Katherine says: "A Heinlein Juvenile"

    What made the experience of listening to Farmer in the Sky the most enjoyable?

    The exploration of various personality types and illustration that most don't want or can't participate in what it takes to 'farm'. Heinleins blend of common understanding of technique and fully exploring what it would take to get to square 1 of that common definition of farming was incite-full for all readers (at least thought provoking). Adding in the various personality types to the colony further emphasized how much talent was possessed by the successful farmer (in the colony)


    What other book might you compare Farmer in the Sky to and why?

    'Stranger in a Strange Land' - kind of a polar opposite of the themes presented. A fine pair to showcase Heinlein's range.


    What about Nick Podehl’s performance did you like?

    A fine voice ranging from young to old and female voices were quite believable. Inflections changed as one personality moved to another. Good job!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    N/a - I don't think this would be ,"Hollywood" material


    Any additional comments?

    "farmer..." wasn't my favorite Heinlein book, but that being said - still worth the read.
