Science Fiction • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1955

To a teenage boy on an overcrowded, doomed Earth, the colony on the Jupiter moon Ganymede seems like a place where he can make his own destiny. But young Bill Lermer soon learns that his new home is a dark and dangerous place where he must quickly learn to be a man if he’s to survive. Robert Heinlein's novel is more science than fiction and offers a view of a very possible future with realism and more than a bit of optimism for the human race. Narrator Nick Podehl joyously performs the work, adding touches with dialects and mannerisms that brings the large cast of characters to life. His performance enhances a superb novel and makes the audiobook a treasure. M.S. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2012]
