Great story overwhelms the poor accent someone decided the narrator should use. One of the masterworks of science fiction.
Interesting look at possible ways people would behave in the future and possible changes in culture, and sex roles.
Like I said the accent was hard to get used to and narrator slipped out of it a few times.
From the Master of Science Fiction
Only if my friend was a huge fan of Heinlein and they wanted to hear one of his earliest works.
Well, ANY kind of plot before the last 1/8th of the book
Yes, but that isn't really a good thing. The story was slowly paced with little actually going on. The voice actors often came off as bored.
Only from a historical perspective.
I wouldn't recommend this as an example of Heinlein's or Full Cast Audio's work. It is flat and relatively lifeless.
This is the second book in a row that Flinx plays a minor roll in. This appears to be the author's attempt a a gritty, urban teen novel. Closer in tone to The Outsiders than previous Flinx books, and other than a short scene at the end of the story does nothing to progress Flinx's overall story. Save your money and skip this one.
Stephen King's It.
I really like Stefan, he does a really good job with some poor material here.
I'd cut more than half the book if I could
