    When the most important statesman of the 21st century disappears on Mars, the only hope of preventing interplanetary war lies in a ham actor's ability to impersonate the missing leader well enough to fool two worlds!

    W. Seligman says: "More worthy of a listen than a read"
    "a classic retelling of the theme"
    Overall

    I've been spoiled by George Wilson's narration of some of Heinlein's stories. But once I got past that minor inconvienience, I was suprised by the quality (which often makes or breaks an audiobook for me). Granted, the tale of body-doubles seems a bit prosaic... almost soap-operetic. Yet this is Heinlein's take on it, and is on par with Richard Dreyfuss' "Moon over Parador" (an excellent body-double movie). No, this isn't the most suprising plot but the little gems tucked into the nooks of the chapters are what make Double Star worth while.
