    . C. “Scar” Gordon was on the French Riviera recovering from a tour of combat in Southeast Asia, but he hadn’t given up his habit of scanning the personals in the newspaper. One ad in particular leapt out at him: "Are you a coward? This is not for you. We badly need a brave man. He must be 23 to 25 years old, in perfect health, at least six feet tall, weigh about 190 pounds, fluent English with some French, proficient with all weapons, some knowledge of engineering and mathematics essential...."

    ShySusan says: "Heinlein's only fantasy"
    "Great story and performance!"

    Story
    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Every time the hero stumbled over a custom or situation which was strange to him, I enjoyed "watching" him decide how to respond and what questions to ask to get enough information to really understand what was happening.


    Any additional comments?

    Although I've been reading Heinlein for years, I didn't actually remember this story. I truly enjoyed the experience.

    Hugh Farnham is a practical, self-made man, and when he sees the clouds of nuclear war gathering, he builds a bomb shelter under his house, hoping for peace and preparing for war. But when the apocalypse comes, something happens that he did not expect. A thermonuclear blast tears apart the fabric of time and hurls his shelter into a world with no sign of other human beings.

    Lisa says: "Heinlein of his time..."
    "Very interesting - thoroughly enjoyed the story!"

    What did you love best about Farnham’s Freehold?

    I most enjoyed the ending (which I won't explain in detail) because second chances were involved.


    Any additional comments?

    I have long been a Heinlein fan and read this story many years ago. It was very interesting to have the characters and narration voiced. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
