Engineered from the finest genes and trained to be a secret courier in a future world, Friday operates over a near-future Earth, where chaos reigns. North America has become Balkanized into dozens of independent states, sharing only a bizarrely vulgarized culture. Now, Friday finds herself on shuttlecock assignment at the seemingly whimsical behest of her secret employer, known to her only as “Boss.” Traveling from New Zealand to Canada, from one new state of America’s disunion to the next, she is confronted with a series of professional as well as personal crises that put her to the test. She must find quick, expeditious solutions as one calamity after another threatens to explode in her face.

Not since Valentine Michael Smith, hero of Stranger in a Strange Land, has Heinlein created a more captivating protagonist. Friday proves once again why Henlein’s novels have sold millions of copies, won countless awards, and earned him the title of Grand Master of Science Fiction.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Pranaguy | 2/8/2014

    " Very well written and entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Robin | 1/27/2014

    " One of my favorite novels. Heinlein casually tosses in more sci-fi ideas in the opening scene than many authors do in an entire novel but they are just background settings for the central story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Jeff Warden | 1/25/2014

    " Heinlen was the reason I relished sci-fi.And for the 80's he was a kinky writer.This is one that I reread through the years.It doesn't wander off into techno babble and makes you love the character.Well worth the time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Sylvie | 1/22/2014

    " It's not a great book, but it's a really engaging book, and one of the first female superhero sci fi books i ever read, so it has a place in my heart forever. "
