    A journey of 167,000 lights years begins with...a bar of soap? Fasten your zero gravity restraints for Robert Heinlein's novel of intergalactic adventure, a story that carries teenager Clifford "Kip" Russell from his job as soda jerk to space-suit winner to alien abductee! Along the way Kip is joined by a pint-sized genius named Peewee and an empathetic alien creature known as "the Mother Thing."

    Overall

    The addition of sound effects, music, different voices, et al, to the story was like adding a second, third and fourth dimension to the reading. I knew I would enjoy HSSWT regardless because I am such a fan of SF in general and Heinlein in particular, but when I got it home, dropped it into the boom box, the magic began. The story is enchanting, the production imaginative and captivating. If you like your meat and potatoes well boiled, then this book will seem too lively for you; otherwise belly up to the banquet table and be prepared for a feast!
