I was unsure how I would like it. Heinlein's masterpieces like stranger in a strange land, the moon is harsh mistress, and starship troopers are some of my favorite books. The idea of someone else writing for him, even if following an extensive outline, filled me with trepidation.

I am pleased to say that I was pleasantly and deeply surprised. In fact, I would say that it was better than Heinlein in his latest years would have been. This work feels like the Heinlein in his prime.

And for the audio book it is the author who actually provides the narration. This is a nice touch that you don't see often enough. It ensures the intended effect of punctuation and emphasis. Worth the listen. Good sci fi, from the recent past, I was all but convinced such a thing was an urban myth.
