    Somewhere in North Dakota, there is a town called Owl that isn't there. Disco is over, but punk never happened. They don't have cable. They don't really have pop culture, unless you count grain prices and alcoholism. People work hard and then they die. They hate the government and impregnate teenage girls. But that's not nearly as awful as it sounds; in fact, sometimes it's perfect.

    Harry says: "A Great Listen"

    What did you love best about The Cat Who Walks through Walls?

    I liked the humor.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was an interesting story.


    Have you listened to any of Tom Weiner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not. It was fine since it did not get in the way of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    The ending was disappointing. It was as if Heinlein didn't know how to end it.
