供源方式:本地
注:这个版本是标准美式发音,男声朗读,语速较快,音质很好。
说明一下,Stranger in a Strange Land一共出版过两次,1961年是redacted版,1991年original uncut版,也就是说,1961年的版本其实是1991年版本的删节版。这里提供的Audio book是1961版的,但因为我手头的4个版本的文本都是1991年uncut版的,所以不好意思只能附上1991年版的PDF。当然audiobook朗读的内容pdf上都有,只不过因为删节的关系,有明显的跳跃。。。所幸不是相反的状况。

本人ADSL上传,还希望各位下完留源支持,这样我才可以腾出带宽继续发布其他科幻有声书。谢谢。


作者介绍:罗伯特·海因莱因(about the author:Robert Heinlein)

被誉为美国现代科幻小说之父的罗伯特·海因莱因诞生于1907年7月7日,1925年进入安那波利斯海军学院学习,毕业后作为航空母舰和驱逐舰的士官到海军服役。1934年,海因莱因因病退役,重返大学,学习数学和物理学,但很快又因病辍学。在成为一名科幻作家之前,海因莱因从事过许多职业。当过银矿矿工,作过建筑商,甚至还动过从政的念头。
1939年,第二次世界大战使美国经济陷入萧条,海因莱因被债务压得抬不起头来。恰在此时,一家科幻杂志刊出了一则科幻小说征文比赛的启事,奖金是50美元。从小就是科幻迷的海因莱因决定争取这50美元的奖金,可是,当他写完他的处女作后,却觉得它应该值更多的钱,于是就把它寄给了当时最着名的科幻杂志《惊人故事》。《惊人故事》的主编——大名鼎鼎的坎贝尔——慧眼识珠,当即以70美元买下了这篇小说,它就是海因莱因的短篇杰作《生命线》(Life-Line)。
在《生命线》中,海因莱因将人生描绘成一条“粉红色虫子”,从遥远的过去一直通向未来。现时只是这条“虫子”的某个断面,人们完全可以从这个断面推测出“虫子”的首尾,也就是人的过去与未来。
海因莱因的第一篇作品就显示了与众不同的才华。对此,美国着名科幻评论家詹姆斯·冈恩这样评论道:“海因莱因在32岁时找到了自己的职业;而与此同时,坎贝尔则找到了他的明星作家。”
海因莱因开始连续发表作品,《镇魂曲》、《宇宙》、《光暴》……仅仅半年之后,海因莱因就已经是科幻小说界有声望的作家了。
二战后,海因莱因开始在美国一流文艺刊物《星期六晚邮报》上连载他的未来学系列《地球的绿色山丘》。这次连载可以算是美国科幻的一个历史性事件,它标志着科幻小说从廉价的三流读物向高级的娱乐作品的跃升。海因莱因在这段时间为青少年创作的《伽利略号火箭飞船》(1947)同样也是一部标志性作品,它的内容为1950年的科幻电影《目的地:月球》所采用,而这部电影正是20世纪50年代科幻电影开始繁荣的起点。
50年代中期到60年代中期,是海因莱因科幻创作的鼎盛期,这期间创作了一系列高水准的科幻长篇,其中《双星》(Double,1956)、《星船伞兵》(Starship Troopers,1959)、《异乡异客》(Stranger in a Strange Land,1961)以及《月亮是一个严厉的女人》(The Moon in a Harsh Mistress,1966)四部获得了着名的雨果奖。
海因莱因一生创作了十多部短篇科幻小说集、三十多部长篇科幻小说,其中《异乡异客》仅在美国就卖出了七百万册;1946年、1961年、1976年,海因莱因三次被邀为世界科幻大会的主宾;世界科幻小说协会从1974年起开始不定期颁发“科幻大师奖”,海因莱因是第一个赢得“大师”称号的科幻作家。
1988年,海因莱因因病逝世。美国华盛顿特区为表彰他的杰出贡献,特别为他颁发了“杰出公民勋章”。


内容提要:(Excerpts)

Captain van Tromp decided that it was time to throw a tantrum. "This man Smith--This 'man!' Can't you see that he is not?"
"Eh?"
"Smith . . . is . . . not . . . a . . . man."
"Huh? Explain yourself, Captain."
"Smith is an intelligent creature with the ancestry of a man, but he is more Martian than man. Until we came along he had never laid eyes on a man. He thinks like a Martian, feels like a Martian. He's been brought up by a race which has nothing in common with us--they don't even have sex. He's a man by ancestry, a Martian by environment. . . "


本书评论:(Reviews)

If any work of fiction will earn Robert Heinlein a permanent place on the collective bookshelf, it is going to be Stranger in a Strange Land, for the impact it has made on American society. If a person has not managed to read Stranger by now, then he has at least absorbed a bit of it osmotically, for it flows throughout our cultural consciousness. Perhaps least of all, it anticipated Nancy Reagan's reliance on astrology and spawned the water bed and the neologism "grok," (Heinlein's Martian verb for a thorough understanding), though "grok" would never have taken hold, had the young rebels of the 1960s not discovered Stranger as their counterculture bible. Some went even further and formed "nests" and churches based on what they found in Stranger; perhaps the most famous instance of that is the Church of All Worlds, a pagan group who lifted its name and logo intact from the book. Stranger has also begun to be included in many canonical college reading lists, and Billy Joel saw fit to mention the title in his 1989 Top-40 hit about history, "We Didn't Start the Fire."
Stranger's fire was kindled in 1948 in a brainstorming session between Robert Heinlein and his wife, Virginia. While looking for material to fit John Campbell's title, "Gulf," Mrs. Heinlein thought it would be interesting to explore the case of a human raised by Martians. Heinlein thought that the idea would make a pretty good Lettres Perses-type novel, took some notes and filed it away for later use, finally placing the completed but abridged version with Putnam's in 1961 (an uncut edition was released in 1991).
Stranger in a Strange Land tells the story of Valentine Michael Smith, orphaned progeny of the first manned expedition to Mars, who has been raised by Martians and brought back to Earth by a second human expedition. Though he is a man in his twenties, Smith looks at absolutely everything on this new planet through the ignorant eyes of a baby, and faces the job of learning how to be a human being. If the world government of Earth will let him, that is, for Smith, through a legal fluke, not only has sole survivor rights to the space drive that his mother invented, but also to the surface of Mars. In a Byzantine maneuver that makes Watergate seem minor, the government holds Smith hostage while it tries to figure out how to seize his assets. Ben Caxton, a muckraking reporter, suspects the worst and attempts to rescue Smith. The problem is, if you can't fight City Hall, how can you even begin to fight a world government?
Enter Caxton's friend, Jubal Harshaw, attorney, physician, hack writer, bon vivant, curmudgeon, anarchist. He caches Smith in Freedom Hall, his Poconos enclave, and takes on the dual chore of fighting the world federation for Smith's liberty and of educating Smith in the ways of his biological race. The youth is an apt student, a strange admixture of human infant and Martian superman, and as time goes on, he manages to win more and more people over to his own alien viewpoint. He becomes a kind of messiah--with explosive results.
Given that, I leave it to the reader to pick up Stranger in a Strange Land and revel in it. In spite of the movements and religions it has birthed, Stranger is no bible; it is a sprawling satire of human conceits, including marriage, love, sex and--most importantly--religion. Satire usually aims to inform, so if one is looking for any message in Stranger, then one take a good, long look at Heinlein's targets and think. As Heinlein himself said in a letter to an avid fan, ". . .I would never undertake to be a `Prophet,' handing out neatly packaged answers to lazy minds. [. . .] anyone who takes that book as answers is cheating himself. It is an invitation to think--not to believe."
What an invitation.
