Heinlein's Future History...
These stories have "aged" surprisingly well. I find myself just as excited by the audiobook version as I was on my first reading of the book, now many years ago.
The voicing made the book stand out as even more memorable than my first experience reading it.
"Requiem" very nearly brought me to tears.
Rated PG 13 for mild profanity. (Single instance.)
Claims to be unabridged. Is both abridged and censored. Good narrator, but I just can't get past the censorship and the "unabridged" lie. Try to be a little more honest next time Audible. had I known, I wouldn't have wasted my money and stuck with the George Guidell version. Gives me doubts as to how censored the rest of my library is.
"The Man Who ..." may be RAH's most intriguing short story before he fell into the novella and adult length genres. Incredible attention to details and twists and turns. Joe 2015
"Of its time"
Full of 1950s era sexism and racism that jars somewhat to the modern ear.
Nevertheless a series of classic tales, including many with a political and social engineering bent re the implications of development - so traditional sci-fi
