Publisher's Summary

When Don Harvey’s parents abruptly summon him from school on Earth to join them on Mars he has no idea he’s about to be plunged into a deadly interplanetary intrigue. But from the moment he begins his journey he finds himself the subject of intense – and possibly deadly – scrutiny.

Things only get worse when the ship Don is traveling on is unexpectedly diverted to Venus, where the colony has launched a revolution against Earth’s control. Flat broke and homeless, Don will have to muster all his resources to stay alive – though it does help that he has earned the friendship of a Venerian dragon known as “Sir Isaac Newton.”

A riveting coming of age story set against a backdrop of a war between planets, this classic Heinlein novel crackles with action, adventure, politics, wit, and brilliant speculation about the world to come.

    "Excellent"

    Heinlein is my favorite SF author. While he has a few works that failed, the vast majority his writing is excellent. This is no exception. Another great Heinlein book.

    Story
    "Great Juvenile, well worth revisiting as an adult"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, adventure and whimsy.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Venerian has great dignity and formal manners offset by someone teaching him to speak English with a Cockney accent.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    smiled alot


    Any additional comments?

    It's not his best it's good. Characters and situations are memorable and it's worth listening to more than once.
