    Hugh Farnham is a practical, self-made man, and when he sees the clouds of nuclear war gathering, he builds a bomb shelter under his house, hoping for peace and preparing for war. But when the apocalypse comes, something happens that he did not expect. A thermonuclear blast tears apart the fabric of time and hurls his shelter into a world with no sign of other human beings.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book, with qualifications. It was written quite a long time ago and much of the book takes place at a time when there was much anxiety over nuclear war. this is important to the story line. But suspending reality, the book was good. It had an interesting story line and made a statement.


    If you’ve listened to books by Robert A. Heinlein before, how does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any other Heinlein, but have read some. I enjoy the humanity he brings to his Sci Fi books; the stories could be any where about any one and they still are believable.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I really don't have a favorite scene.


    Do you think Farnham’s Freehold needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No follow up is necessary, it was a complete story with a pretty final ending. That said, if he wanted to do a follow up, there was room for one.
