The Green Hills of Earth

The Green Hills of Earth - Robert A. Heinlein, Tom Weiner Overall, I found the collection an interesting walk down Classic SF Lane. Most were entertaining, some a bit sexist, other taking on some Big Picture items such as slavery. While this collection was a bit entertaining, I won’t be rushing out to borrow more Heinlein. The Moon is a Harsh Mistress is still my favorite Heinlein work, and superior to what is found in this collection.

Tome Weiner did a decent job of narrating the individual stories. Typically I avoid short story collections in audio format especially when there is only 1 narrator. With that said, Weiner did a pretty good job of varying the main voice from story to story so that they didn’t all run together in my head. His female voices could use a little more work, but that is true of many male narrators.
