Publisher's Summary

Don Harvey is a citizen of the Interplanetary Federation - yet no single planet can claim him as its own. His mother was born on Venus and his father on Earth, and Don himself was born on a spaceship in trajectory between planets. When his parents abruptly summon him away from school on Earth to join them on Mars, he has no idea he's about to be plunged into deadly interplanetary intrigue. But the ship Don is traveling on is unexpectedly diverted to Venus, where the colony has launched a revolution against Earth's control. What's more, Earth troops have landed on Venus and are looking for him. Flat broke and homeless, Don will have to muster all his resources to stay alive.
A riveting coming-of-age story set against a backdrop of a war between planets, this classic Heinlein novel crackles with action, adventure, politics, wit, and brilliant speculation about the world to come.

A great listen

Although the extra terrestrial life in the story is far fetched by modern standards this is still a very readable and reflects on how we treat different cultures and how we react to authoritarian governments. The main character is very likeable and his adventure leads us through interplanetary politics as easily as a pony trek in the Grand Canyon where it all starts.

Nice, but could have been better

Nice novel, though not one of Heinlein's best. It does keep the listener glued up to the last chapter, though.
The narrator did his part, but I believe he could have put more effort in voicing the accents and intonations of the various non-WASP characters, such as women or Chinese native speakers
