  • I Will Fear No Evil

    As startling and provocative as his famous Stranger in a Strange Land, here is Heinlein’s grand masterpiece about a man supremely talented, immensely old, and obscenely wealthy who discovers that money can buy everything.

    Would you try another book from Robert A. Heinlein and/or Anthony Heald?

    No


    Has I Will Fear No Evil turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What didn’t you like about Anthony Heald’s performance?

    Anthony Heald is of the camp that a female voice is a breathy voice. He actually suits the characters reasonably well (as they're shallow and cliched).


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    So disappointed! I realize this book was written in the 1970s, but the author has so little imagination and so little depth and interest in the difference between the sexes it's astounding. It reads like a young boy's fantasy about getting to try on a female body and live out his sexual fantasies in a vaguely liberated environment. With so much potential subject matter to explore, he sticks to prurient, boring cliches and stereotypes, giving his characters no depth and little imagination.

    Story

    Marion and Shiva Stone are twin brothers born of a secret union between a beautiful Indian nun and a brash British surgeon at a mission hospital in Addis Ababa. Orphaned by their mother's death in childbirth and their father's disappearance, bound together by a preternatural connection and a shared fascination with medicine, the twins come of age as Ethiopia hovers on the brink of revolution. Yet it will be love, not politics - their passion for the same woman - that will tear them apart.

    Mary Lynn says: "Brilliant story, pitch perfect narration"
    "Beautiful - and beautifully read"
    Overall

    Cutting for Stone is a masterpiece that deals deftly with issues of family, belonging, obligation, and love in ways that are both unexpected and poignant. This is a wonderful story that captivates from beginning to end. Sunil Malhotra does an excellent job with the narration. A must listen!
