    It doesn't seem likely for twins to have the same middle name. Even so, it's clear that Castor and Pollux Stone both have "Trouble" written in that spot on their birth certificates. Of course, anyone who's met their grandmother Hazel would know that they came by it honestly.

    Overall

    I grew up reading all of Heinlein's juvenile novels and to this day I still pick them up for another read whenever I want to feel like a kid again. The Rolling Stones was always one of my favorites and I think this recording does it justice. I'll agree with others that the some of the "bumper" music is a bit on the annoying side but overall I think the voice characterizations were pretty good. I hope some of Heinlein's other works are brought to audio in the near future.

    Overall

    I finally pulled the plug on this one after getting 3 hours and 20 minutes into it. I kept thinking that it would get better and I should keep listening , however, when at that 3:20 point new characters were still being introduced I realized that I would need a spreadsheet to keep track of everyone. I'm all for well developed and interesting characters but this is insane. How about some story line? Or do I have to listen for another 5 hours to actually learn what's going on? Maybe I'll pick this one up again at a later date and give it another try...wait a minute...what am I saying? That would be like having acid poured into my ears. No thank you.
