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.
Nice overview of current ideas in physics. NDT is great as a presenter. I love this series
Really love this book, probably King's finest.
Narrator is good and doesn't try to take over
Nope, lots of better science books out there.
Author kept referring to Mother Nature doing, thinking, or deciding things. While this may have been common in the 1800's I find it disconcerting in a modern science book.
Nope, poor grasp of science puts the ghost in the machine instead of explaining how things actually work
Kept getting the impression that author was going to try to sell something. Script and delivery were closer to a late-night sales person than someone trying to teach science.
yes, very interesting author know his stuff and is excited about it
only 1 character
Very interesting and comprehensive author doesn't repeat himself though and keeps the subject interesting.
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
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
