Without spoiling anything, this book reads like an agnostic's love letter to spiritualists and humanity. Its also abit of a cautionary tale that warns against the power of dominant religion and deceit.
I enjoyed this both in print and in audio version. The book and the story are the same but I enjoyed them 40 years apart so I have changed.
He really brings the story and the characters to life. A wonderful job!
This is a book that I have carried with me in my mind, referring back to some of the ideas over the years. I have quoted lines out of this book. It had a big impact on me.
Misogynists, swingers, people who like awful smug characters.
Eh, he was okay. He had some vocal fry, but nothing that would have killed a book that was actually good.
No. Well, the first hour of it *seemed* like it would have some kind of plot. So if you want to listen to just that and then just make the rest up on your own, you'll be happier.
No, I've spent enough time on this(and I use the term loosely) book.
The author literally writes himself into the story as Hugh Hefner mixed with Tony Stark as the world's creepiest Mary Sue. The whole thing is the self-important swinger's communist manifesto with a THIN layer of plot casually sprayed on top.
this book was fantastic. some of those old Sci fi authors were like prophets. they really had a deep insight into human nature, human potential, and how society would evolve.
Heinlen, man you could spin a tale. Thou art God, thank you water brother, good story. Some reviews say the female characters are, sexistly formed. Heinlen knew, more about the human condition than amazon reviewer. If you ever served listen to starship troopers, the book not the movie.
