    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."

    "Well done classic science fiction"
    Overall

    This full-cast audio recording is just a bit short of audio-dramatization. The voice selections and reading made the story easier to follow and more enjoyable. The voices, intonation and accents added much to the atmosphere of this early science-fiction story. Heinlein's early work had a wide-eyed innocence to it that is refreshing. In addition, the technical asides on the details of space travel, spacesuit design, and other topics are almost never seen in modern science fiction. I did laugh a bit at the references to slide-rule calculations, though.

  • Very Good, Jeeves

    The sunny world of Bertie Wooster is always fresh and alluring, notwithstanding Bertie's redoubtable Aunt Dahlia or the pickles that complicate the lifestyles of the upper-crust-British-daft. Very Good, Jeeves! is written with infinite Wodehousean cunning, so that it is equally comprehensible, interesting, and riotously merry, both to the old gang who know Wodehouse characters and situations well, and to the new arrivals who never encountered a P.G. Wodehouse novel before.

    Russell says: "Hilarious and well-read."
    "Very Good, Jeeves"
    Overall

    I tend to favor the characterizations of the actors on the BBC/PBS television productions, and so the voices used by the reader took some getting used to, but it is never a mistake to get one of the Jeeves books. I had a great time listening to this one, and look forward to the opportunity to hear another.

    Overall

    I was listening to this recording while performing a rather delicate experiment on insect larvae. While holding a beetle in forceps, I heard a particularly funny statement, and squashed the object of my research in my laughter. Very dangerously funny!
