This is a great story . . . and Callahan's gang travels to Florida to start a new life. Along the way, Spider Robinson writes one of the best descriptions of someone watching a Space Shuttle launch I've ever heard. The mental imagery brought tears to my eyes.
It is a great book, especially if you want to hear some great puns and good story line.
No. I have not read the print edition.
Something less strange. It felt a little too close to the Clarke stories about Rama with vampires and gene modified being included.
The reading was drone-like and made it hard to follow.
I listened to this book just after finishing "Have Spacesuit Will Travel." I was blown away by how well Spider Robinson captured the feel and pacing of Robert Heinlein in writing this story. Having loaded both books into my MP3 player, I went from the end of one to the start of the other . . . and it was pretty nice.
I would suggest you take the time to listen to this story.
I first became acquainted with Mr. McCullough's writing when I listened to the unabridged version of Truman. His narrative style, bringing in a fuller picture of the events surrounding the first years of the American Revolutionary War, really painted a greater picture for me of the era that led to the birth of our nation. Read it. It'll change the way you look at history.
Before listening to this biography, I only knew that Truman had succeeded FDR and was the man who made the decision to drop the first nuclear bomb. After listening to this book, I have come to love and get a greater understanding of Truman, the man. The book is excellent, and Mr. McCullough did a thorough job in trying to capture the essence of President Truman, warts and all. This biography truly made me wish I had had a chance to meet Harry S Truman, and in a way, I did.
