Well no, I would not; it is equal to the print version but has the bonus of a great voice reading it to you.
The protagonist's adherence to TANSTAAFL and working himself to his limits to make something for and of himself.
His voice makes you want to listen to every word and not skip the "boring" parts....which are rare in this book anyhow.
no, but decidedly kept me entertained going across the Atlantic by air (ATL-CDG & return) for when I was not asleep.
This is, imho, the worst of RAH's "juveniles", but is still a fantastic read that should not be missed as it is better than 90% of the other sci-fi out there today. Also, this is probably the only format you will be able to "read" this book in for awhile unless you stumble across a copy in a used bookstore or want to pay a wad of cash on-line for a print edition.
what not too like? oh maybe I could kvetch about the neat&tidy ending a smidgen, but that would rather be a bit of hair-splitting on my part.
Ms. Huber does not bring anything to the story that I would not attain by reading a print version on my own; EXCEPT that her voice is so engaging as to be on par with the Sirens of Odysseus that I desired to not put the book to my own detriment many a night.
A fantastic story read by a fantastic voice.
Top 10; #1 is 'Friday' by Robert Heinlein, #2 is the "Share" series as written and read by Nathan Lowell.
when Honor realized that her ship was gutted of its long-range armament for a cockamamie short-range system.
the description of the fungi flora planet.....just conveyed the alien-ness of the world.
I really prefer that audiobook performers NOT try to give each character specific voices; it detracts from my immersion factor.
