Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein (unabridged) was produced by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see below for features list). In one of Heinlein’s most controversial best-sellers, a recruit in a future world is sent through the toughest boot camp in the Universe to join the Terran Mobile Infantry in battle against mankind’s most alarming enemy. Juan Rico signed up with the Federal Reserve on a lark, but despite the hardships and rigorous training, he finds himself determined to make it as a cap trooper. In boot camp he learns how to become a soldier, but it is in war that he will learn why. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the same 5-star recording that is available through other retailers for higher prices. It is unabridged and professionally recorded at Blackstone Audio by veteran narrator Lloyd James. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here. “Lloyd James is terrific as the narrator, able to infuse his voice with the wide-eyed innocence of Rico and the gruffness of Sgt. Zim. James' is a voice you can count on, and this is an absolutely fabulous audiobook—to my ears, the definitive version.” —SFFAudio.com • EXPERIENCE.
