Why I recommend this — 5 years ago

This is one of Heinlein’s best works. My personal favorite of his.


Wonderful! — 7 years ago


Heinlein never disappoints and this is just great stuff.

It is a “Revolt in 2010” on a much grander scale. Well thought out, throughout, as a: believable, first person, memoir, of when Earth’s Lunar prison colony starts a revolution against big-bad-brother Terra.

Love the build up, the effortless political and strategy discussion. Plus, the final confrontations, when things get hot, are simply great.

Truley a master of his craft and this has his “A” game written all over it.

The first time i tried to read this i couldn’t get into it, but this time around it was hard to put down at certain points. i don’t have much time to read during the semester but i kept picking it up every few days, eager to find out what happens next. The narrative is a little different from what one expects to find these days, but this book is still well written, discussing the theories of government and overthrowing one without sounding at all preachy, tactfully getting the point across. For a sci fi fan who loves the genre for the thought provoking issues it faces rather than the blast-it-up fly-fast mentality, this is definitely worth a read.

Nice quick read… interesting ending (though a little unbelievable).

My first sci-fi novel in a long time, it’s pretty interesting though.
