  • A classic of 1960's science fiction

    An exploration of a future authoritarian world as seen through alien eyes. Although written 50 years ago the future seen has many parallels with today and the issues and conflicts are still relevant. The themes in this book found a home in the works of many later writers but few had such vision and this really is a classic that should be read by anyone who wants to know how modern science fiction evolved. This is a large book but the plot keeps you involved and despite it's length it is over too soon.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • The past is another country

    Perhaps I haven't grokked the book in fullness yet, but I prefered this as a collection of inspiring ideas and a perspective on the human condition than as a narrative. Heinlein seems mostly concerned with shoving in as many of his musings as he can, with plot as a bit of a neccessary evil

  • Super men and holy men

    Takes a while to build up. Sections that are lewd, lascivious and confront many of your basic assumptions of being human and human sexuality. It's also quasi religious in nature ..and that can get a bit annoying. Some quotes really give away the books age (i.e. a main female character claiming 9/10 rapes are provoked!) Its deep, but not greatly so.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Stranger in a strange land

    Still as thought provoking as it was the first time back in the eighties. Such a great pace kept up throughout and characters you care about.
