Heinlein’s cult classic about a man raised by Martians who teaches humanity to make love, not war, doesn’t read aloud very well. The narrative is heavy, the dialogue contrived and unnatural. The tone is dated. Competent, but no miracle worker, Christopher Hurt tries gamely to keep things moving and believable. His performance will satisfy the nostalgic and uncritical but won’t win new converts. J.N. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV/DEC 96]
