I bought this because it had Heinlein's name on it-- I saw the Vonnegut reference but assumed RAH had some hand it the adaptation. This does not appear to be the case-- Heinlein is not mentioned at all. But you know, Vonnegut doesn't stink.
If you're looking for post-fifties production values or acting styles, look elsewhere. But it's a good story, and pretty well done for the time.
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.
