The book won a Hugo award and is one of Heinlein's best, but the narration makes the audio version required, even if you've already read the novel.
I've listened to several of Weiner's narrations before, and always considered him a competent performer. My perception of him has been greatly elevated after hearing this work. It is easily the best performance I've heard from him, and probably one of the best by any narrator.

What did you love best about Double Star?
The story is just wonderful and Perfect Heinlein. I read this what seems to be a million years ago and since then I have re-read it several times. This audiobook is perfectly done and the reader was great. This is simply creativity that none of us will ever see again. Heinlein and of course Asimov, are giants from the past. We all know now without any doubt that the Martians that are a main focus here, are never to be. But the story is more about life, politics, people struggling for the better way of life and the sacrifices that we all are ask to make in the attempt to obtain it all.
What did you like best about this story?
Heinlein is just great.
Have you listened to any of Tom Weiner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Great performance by the narrator, if anything, I feel he made the story even better.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, I basically did.
Any additional comments?
Like I said this is the end of this type of writing. Future Science Fiction writing of course will and have their own great writers, but this era is over and never to happen again, thus this is one of the best stories that I feel, represents that era! Enjoy!
