Another excellent Heinlein novel that I finally got around to reading. This book crosses "Time Enough for Love" in many places. So, I would advise them as a pair. The narrator was excellent. Production quality was excellent. Enjoy!

Time Enough for Love is the capstone and crowning achievement of Heinlein's famous Future History series. Lazarus Long is so in love with life that he simply refuses to die. Born in the early 1900s, he lives through multiple centuries, his love for time ultimately causing him to become his own ancestor. Time Enough for Loveis his lovingly detailed account of his journey through a vast and magnificent timescape of centuries and worlds. Using the voice of Lazarus, Heinlein expounds his own philosophies, including his radical ideas on sexual freedom.

Loved this book. Narrator was excellent. The writing is amazing, as is typical of Heinlein. Presents several periods in the 2000+ year life of Lazarus Long, so beware that it has a fragmented feeling to it.

Great near-future science fiction. Listen to Fire Star first to meet the characters. Cliff hanger ending, so plan on getting the next book in the series.
