Heinlein at his Best
Classic 1950s science fiction. If you want a SF nostalgia trip, this is the book. A couple of "young adult" stories included, but in the main all work from Heinlein's classic period. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Tom Weiner's narration is also exceptional.

If the mark of a classic is timelessness, the Heinlein short stories collected in The Green Hills of Earth certainly qualify. After 70 years, these stories are still great. Like other works from Heinlein's contemporaries (Isaac Asimov, etc.) they have a markedly different feel from modern sci-fi that is heavily influenced by huge franchises like Star Wars and Star Trek.
For another criminally underrated Heinlein work, check out Orphans of the Sky.
