    The totalitarian East has triumphed in a massive invasion, and the United States has fallen to a dictatorial superpower bent on total domination. That power is consolidating its grip through concentration camps, police state tactics, and a total monopoly upon the very thoughts of the conquered populace. A tiny enclave of scientists and soldiers survives, unbeknownst to America’s new rulers. It’s six against six million - but those six happen to include a scientific genius, a master of subterfuge and disguise who learned his trade as a lawyer-turned-hobo, and a tough-minded commander....

    When the priests confronted the Chinese police who were controlling the USA.

    No. He did a good job.

    I appreciated the moment when the Major had to face being overwhelmed by the magnitude of his job.

    Everything, well, almost everything, you know about American history is wrong because most textbooks and popular history books are written by left-wing academic historians who treat their biases as fact. But fear not; Professor Thomas Woods refutes the popular myths in The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History.

    Gary says: "Informative, thoughtful, eye opening and funny."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I think that it has some relevant data concerning what was supposed to be in place versus what is in place.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I can't say as all the information was useful. The only problem is that it is presented so fast that one needs to listen to the book again to get the full information.


    Which character – as performed by Barrett Whitener – was your favorite?

    No Character was performed.


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

    U S History as it was.

    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 had read this book in the fifties and really enjoyed it. Recently I listened to the audio book and still enjoyed the story. I believe that was money well spent.
