This is a terrific audiobook. Immensely better than the movie that came out recently. The alternating viewpoints by chapter keeps the listener hooked.
I love most of Heinlein's work. This was the rare exception. The book started off interesting enough, then about a third of the way into it, the flavor completely changes. It went off in a direction that was both dumb and frustrating. The ending especially was disappointing. Try another of his works instead.
I picked this book out after seeing the movie. While I enjoyed the film, it in no way does the story justice. The real life adventure is simply amazing. It's hard to believe anyone was able to pull off the stunts Abagnale did, let alone before they were 21! The only down side was that the story's ending left a lot to be desired. I won't give anything away, but it left me wanting to know more.
