Besides this being very political, the main character is a teenage wise A ss. Heinlein who was married three times, never had any children of his own, but seems to think he is an expert in how to raise our children. This character shows very little respect for his parents or any authority. In the book they take it to the extreme, but leading up to the extreme this kid is constantly bucking the system. Heinlein believes you must have guns to have freedom and thanks it is okay for teenagers to have guns. There are than several times when the kid comes close to killing someone over the smallest slight. I did not like the main character and I thought the story was weak. I normally love Heinlein's juvenile books were he shows hard work and a "I can do it" attitude gets great things accomplished. This is not one of those.

- Jim "The Impatient" "My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books."

I love Heinlein. this is a classic that I can listen to with my kids and enjoy over and over. The narrator performed very well and brought the story to life.
