    If you ran into Stephen Tobolowsky on the street, you would not be mistaken: Yes, you’ve seen him before. A childhood dentist? A former geometry teacher? Your local florist? Tobolowsky is a character actor, one of the most prolific screen and stage presences of our time, having appeared in productions that range from Deadwood to Glee, from Mississippi Burning to Groundhog Day. But Stephen Tobolowsky, it turns out, is not just an actor; he is also a dazzlingly talented storyteller and writer.

    Was ready to delete it after the first 30 min. but glad that I didn't it was very good until the last word. The only thing I had against it was the time line of the stories, keep me confused at times.

    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.

    What disappointed you about I Will Fear No Evil?

    Sorry Robert but this story was boring.


    What was most disappointing about Robert A. Heinlein’s story?

    The whole thing


    What does Anthony Heald bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Very good reader


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from I Will Fear No Evil?

    From chapter 2 to THE END


    Any additional comments?

    I like most Heinlein books but this one just had no plot. Kind of get tired keeping track of who was bedding who. The basic premise of the book was interesting but it went no where. If it wasn't for the very good reader, and the idea that there must be a story in here some where I would have deleted it after the first hour.

    To appreciate the meaning and beauty of great works of art, we must be familiar with the lives of the geniuses who created them. For in the personalities and life stories of great artists is the key to their masterpieces.

    "skip this book unless you missed art 101"

    If you want a very quick overview of artist lives this is for you. A good one to put by your bed to make you go to sleep. Good reader.

    September 1942. Karl Deichman knows that if he carries out orders to lead a precision bomb attack on the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth, he will probably kill his English cousin - with whom, long ago, he swore friendship until death. But a pilot from the German Luftwaffe has no choice - the attack must proceed.

    Cary says: "Top notch"
    "very good listen"
    Overall

    Very good book the best story I have heard in a long time. Nice twists and turns until the very end. Excellent narrator even if he missed a few of the accents.
