Description

“Narrator Tom Weiner’s extraordinary ability is to take the dozens of distinct characters in Heinlein’s philosophical space adventure and give each a unique and instantly recognizable style…Winner of an AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile

Winner of an AudioFile Earphones Award

Robert A. Heinlein has written some of the bestselling science fiction novels of all time, including the beloved classic Stranger in a Strange Land. Now, in The Cat Who Walks through Walls, he creates his most compelling character ever: Dr. Richard Ames, ex-military man, sometime writer, and unfortunate victim of mistaken identity.

When a stranger attempting to deliver a cryptic message is shot dead at his dinner table, Ames is thrown headfirst into danger, intrigue, and other dimensions where Lazarus Long still thrives, where Jubal Harshaw lives surrounded by beautiful women, and where a daring plot to rescue the sentient computer called Mike can change the direction of all human history.
