Only 8 left in stock (more on the way). As with many of his books, Heinlein cloaks the observations of major topics like death and immortality and organized government and civil liberty within an exciting and entertaining journey throughout the universe.

I quite enjoyed the dialogue between Long and his fellow travelers.

He has a really nice voice and, judging by his photo on the back of the audiobook (which I enjoyed looking at much more than I liked looking at the cheesy cover art for Methuselah’s Children) I thought he looked too young to pull off a convincing 200 year old Lazarus Long.
