  • X Minus One: The Roads Must Roll (Dramatized)

    Engineers create conveyor-belt-like roads, the only way to keep the congested future moving. But now a strike is shutting it all down. Based on a story by Robert Heinlein, this episode of X Minus One originally aired on January 4, 1956.

    Kristi says: "An anti union story by Heinlein"
    "Classic Heinlein"
    Overall

    This short story predicted urban sprawl, and our dependence on the technology that makes it possible. This radio production is very faithful to the original source material, and very well done.

    Story

    For Rain McLeod, a 46-year-old dancer whose failing body is about to end her career, the Starseed program is the only way to continue living her dream. But for others, including several religious groups and power hungry countries back on earth, the existence of Stardancers represents a threat to all humanity.

    Overall

    The first novel in this series (Stardance) was absolutely excellent, and this followed suit.

    I was surprised at how little the notion of Spider reading the part of the (female) main character interfered... that can kill a book, in my opinion, but it worked here.

    Once again, the description provided is a little off of the actual book... but it doesn't matter. Read it.
