Stranger in a Strange Land - Robert A. Heinlein - Audio Book

Brand New : (still shrink wrapped)  Unabridged 16 hours   13 CDs

The many distinguished research fiction novel created, Stranger in a Strange Land is the epic saga of an earthling, born and educated on Mars, who arrives on our world with superhuman powers along with a total ignorance of the mores of guy. His name is Valentine Michael Smith, and he is destined to become a freak, a media commodity, a con artist, a searcher, a intimate pioneer, a neon evangelist, a martyr, and finally, a messiah.audiobooks
This novel became not just the bible of the "love generation," it managed to transcend the research fiction genre to achieve the status of the contemporary classic; or, as others place it, Heinlein's earthly "divine comedy."

About the Author Robert Heinlein

(from Wikipedia) Robert Anson Heinlein (July 7, 1907 - May 8, 1988) was the most common, influential, and controversial authors of "hard" research fiction. He set a excellent standard for research and technology plausibility that limited have equaled, and helped to raise the genre's practices of literary standard. He was the initially author to break into mainstream general publications including The Saturday Evening Post in the late 1940s with unvarnished research fiction. He was among the initial authors of bestselling novel-length research fiction in the contemporary mass-market era. For years Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, and Arthur C. Clarke were termed as the "Big Three" of research fiction.
The main themes of his function were social: radical individualism, libertarianism, religion, the relationship between bodily and psychological love, and speculation about unorthodox family relationships. His iconoclastic approach to these themes led to wildly divergent perceptions of his functions. His 1959 novel Starship Troopers was excoriated by some as being fascist. His 1961 novel Stranger in a Strange Land, found on the different hand, place him in the unexpected character of pied piper to the intimate revolution and counterculture.

Heinlein won 4 Hugo Awards for his novels. Additionally, fifty years after publication, 3 of his functions were granted "Retro Hugos" - awards provided retrospectively for a long time in which no Hugos had been granted. He also won the initial Grand Master Award provided by the Science Fiction Writers of America for life achievement.

In his fiction, Heinlein coined words that have become piece of the English code, including "grok", "TANSTAAFL" and "waldo."
