    As startling and provocative as his famous Stranger in a Strange Land, here is Heinlein’s grand masterpiece about a man supremely talented, immensely old, and obscenely wealthy who discovers that money can buy everything.

    Would you try another book from Robert A. Heinlein and/or Anthony Heald?

    probably not - didn't get far enough into it to tell. this one was over the line for me.


    What could Robert A. Heinlein have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    used his talent as a writer to be descriptive without so much sexual content.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    heinlein is talented, who doesn't know that? but this one disappointed me. i know he can make any story great - without going ... too far.


    Any additional comments?

    a content rating system of some kind would be nice. movies are rated, music is rated, why can't we have a rating system here so we can make choices without wasting credits?

    Young Kindan has no expectations other than joining his father in the mines of Camp Natalon, a coal mining settlement struggling to turn a profit far from the great Holds where the presence of dragons and their riders means safety and civilization. Mining is fraught with danger. Fortunately, the camp has a watch-wher, a creature distantly related to dragons and uniquely suited to specialized work in the dark, cold mineshafts.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    another great listen


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    all characters were well developed.


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    loved the harper.


    Any additional comments?

    for the people who say there are discrepancies with the previously written books - get over it, it's not distracting (it was so enjoyable I barely noticed) - things can change - because..um..well, it's fiction.
