This genre seems to be dominated by a need to emphasis and exaggerate the sex..
The reader didn't capture the people involved in a believable way.

I really enjoyed this typically sound work by Heinlein.. The four parts fit together nicely and carry the story line over four periods of time quite brilliantly..

Somewhat violent and unusual storyline..
The basic storyline lends itself to the violence and the seeming disinterest towards human life..
Worth a listen..

As a descriptive narrative of the human tragedy and the utter futility of war, this book succeeds - but at what a cost to the reader.!!

A book written and recited by a person who has little aptitude in either ..
No doubt a good documentary producer the authors' style is akin to a soundbite quoter on early bird news..

Generally a good yarn with the author colourfully describing life in "grandeous" society where status is historic..

A fine read, well read by Timothy West..
Trollopes perennial questioning of self - whist surrounded by life of that time..

A very good read of a yarn that reflects the basic fears of humans, the fears of "difference", "being socially shunned" and "injustice" - unless it happens to others..
