Reader Rob McQuay doesn’t have a lot to do but read the lengthy discursive analyses of Heinlein as he was poised on the brink of best-sellerdom. These are mature stories published as the author was moving from some of the best juvenile sci-fi novels ever penned to his adult novels, such as Starship Troopers and Stranger in a Strange Land. With assurance McQuay reads the few characters casually delineated--a teenaged girl on the moon, a doomed survivalist on Planet Earth. Much of what made Heinlein famous is audible here: contempt for government and convention, stark self-reliance, prescient scientific vision. D.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 98]
