A Science Fiction Classic!

If you could sum up The Man Who Sold the Moon in three words, what would they be?

Heinlein's Future History...

What did you like best about this story?

These stories have "aged" surprisingly well. I find myself just as excited by the audiobook version as I was on my first reading of the book, now many years ago.

What does Buck Schirner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The voicing made the book stand out as even more memorable than my first experience reading it.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

"Requiem" very nearly brought me to tears.

Any additional comments?

Rated PG 13 for mild profanity. (Single instance.)

The Man Who Sold The Moon

"The Man Who ..." may be RAH's most intriguing short story before he fell into the novella and adult length genres. Incredible attention to details and twists and turns. Joe 2015
