Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Spider Robinson

Science Fiction • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

VARIABLE STAR is a novel that was outlined by the late Robert A. Heinlein in the early phase of his career. Spider Robinson, who offers full details in the afterword, used that outline to create this novel, which reads in equal parts like the works of both authors. Robinson narrates as well, and a better choice couldn’t be made. He’s got a pleasant, inviting tone that makes his narration feel like a friend telling you the most incredible story about where he’s been the last few years. The novel is full of philosophical insight, exploding things, and space travel. It’s everything you could ask for in a visit from an old and dear friend. Spider Robinson is a top-notch narrator, and this audiobook is a whole lot of fun. S.D.D. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
