This picaresque tale of adventure is set in the semi-lawless frontier that Heinlein clearly hoped space would become, where men would be men and women would like it that way. It could easily be transmuted to the American Wild West or medieval Japan. Either one likes the later Heinlein, with his machismo and sexual preoccupations, or one does not. George Wilson at least understands it well enough to give it an ideal tone, on the light side, and to make Heinlein's rather strained dialogue sound almost like natural speech. Fans will be well pleased. J.N. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
