I listened to this title on audio book, and I'll admit that I chose this particular novel because Full Cast Audio recorded it. I don't read a ton of sci-fi, but FCA always produces superb audio books, and this was no exception. It has great voice actors, great production quality, and an obvious love for the source material.

As for the book itself, it was enjoyable. The story is fun, and I could see teenage boys, especially ones interested in science or engineering, really loving it. There is enough humour to keep the story from being too heavy. It's a bit dated now (I loved the bit where the main character, Kip, waxes lyrical about his slide rule while he takes space travel for granted), but most of the time it's not distracting.

All in all, it's a solid introduction to Heinlein for me. Apparently I had a misspent youth, as I never read any of his books before now!
