Publisher's Summary

Join the Army and See the Universe. That is the motto of The Third Space War, also known as The First Interstellar War, but most commonly as The Bug War. In one of Robert Heinlein's most controversial best sellers, a recruit of the future goes through the toughest boot camp in the universe - and into battle with the Terrain Mobile Infantry against mankind's most alarming enemy.

©1959 by Robert A. Heinlein; (P)1998 by Blackstone Audiobooks

    "Great story and performance"

    A very inspiring story. The best one of Heinlein I have read so far, and my current favorite. It's a book of depth and adventure. I just wish that I had read it when I was younger.

    The performance is also great. I'm very impressed by the narrator's voice. It was a great fit to the age, personality & experience of the protagonist. Reminds me more of the great Japanese voice actors (senyu) who give life to the characters they portray, and make them realistic.

    "Timeless..."

    ...but ocasionally there were small, but noticeable variations in the volume, tone, and timbre of the narration as they seemed to splice in different takes.

    "Audio quality dips occasionally"

    Audio drops low on occasion, but doesn't hinder the story or performance. Much better than the movie.

    A book for leaders, military or otherwise, young men and women, and a great read.

    "Not what I thought."

    Good storyline, I was thrown off because I saw the movie which had very little similarity. All in all a good listen. The problem was the sound quality, poor.

    "Essential sci-fi."

    Very solid reading of Heinlein's classic. This is one of the most influential sci-fi works of the 20th century, and well worth putting on your list.

    "Excellent book"

    Nice narrative voice, but at times the audio quality wavered, as if they re-recorded some sections in a different room.

    "Great Story, little problems with the recording"

    Great Story, and a Sci-Fi classic. the audio book has some recording issues. occasionally it sounds like the readers voice gets muffled.

    "great storey, bad narrating."

    The story was riveting enough to keep me interested. The reading. however, was another thing altogether. strange second. long pauses and occasional spots where it sounded like a completely different narrator.
