    Story
    (250)

    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....

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Sixth Column the most enjoyable?

    I first read this book as a teenager back in the early 60's. Not being much of a reader back then I read Stranger in a Strange Land as a English assignment and was hooked. I read everything Heinlein wrote after that. When I discovered his books in audible format I decided to revisit them. While dated it kind of took me back to my early days fo reading them for the first time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Heinlein's imagination and futuristic thinking.


    What three words best describe Tom Weiner???s performance?

    Solid, average, likable


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really. While this book was written about the time of WWII it now seems pretty heavy handed against the Japanese people and their culture. Understandable in the time that it was written.
