Matt Dodson arrives at Space Academy little prepared for the rigorous program he is about to enter. But that’s the point of the academy: to take young men and steep them in a demanding tradition of honor, courage, and sacrifice until they have earned the right to join the Patrol as guardians of the solar peace.
Unfortunately, even the academy’s high power training can’t completely prepare Matt and his friends Tex and Oscar for the harrowing test of both survival and diplomatic skills they will face when a mission goes disastrously wrong.
A classic coming-of-age tale, and one of the most influential books in the history of science fiction, Space Cadet features the compelling mix of wit, action, and a clear vision of the future that are the hallmarks of Heinlein at his best.

Listen to see how far Heinlein came in his writing
Only if my friend was a huge fan of Heinlein and they wanted to hear one of his earliest works.
Well, ANY kind of plot before the last 1/8th of the book
Yes, but that isn't really a good thing. The story was slowly paced with little actually going on. The voice actors often came off as bored.
Only from a historical perspective.
I wouldn't recommend this as an example of Heinlein's or Full Cast Audio's work. It is flat and relatively lifeless.
Nothing better than Heinlein performed by a cast!
