I first read Heinlein's classic alien invasion story more than 40 year ago, and listening to it now feels like walking into a time machine. I honestly enjoyed it, but I suspect younger readers may find it strange. The story was placed app. fifty years into the future when written, and now in 2000 after World War III, The Soviet Empire is still around and Venus has been colonized (not very successfully due to the large jungles on the planet). All television is in 3D, and there are three space stations. However, no Internet and no satelites, and interestingly it seems that France some years ago went nudist. I could go on and on. The book is quite a good thriller with some good "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" moments, but to me the most fascinating thing was being transported back 50 years looking forward to the dim and far away future of year 2000 and beyond. Great Fun.
