    . C. “Scar” Gordon was on the French Riviera recovering from a tour of combat in Southeast Asia, but he hadn’t given up his habit of scanning the personals in the newspaper. One ad in particular leapt out at him: "Are you a coward? This is not for you. We badly need a brave man. He must be 23 to 25 years old, in perfect health, at least six feet tall, weigh about 190 pounds, fluent English with some French, proficient with all weapons, some knowledge of engineering and mathematics essential...."

    ShySusan says: "Heinlein's only fantasy"
    "A fun ride."

    What did you love best about Glory Road?

    The characters are colorful and sharp. Classic Heinlein.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Oscar is exactly what I would expect from a Heinlein hero.


    What does Bronson Pinchot bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    I was pleasantly surprised by Bronson Pinchot's narration. With one exception I love what he did with the characters in this book. I was a bit bothered at first by the fact that he gave Rufo a french accent. But it didn't take long to get used to it.


    Any additional comments?

    I read this book as a young adult and it's just as much fun now as it was then. A good ride!
