“Stranger in a Strange Land” by Robert Heinlein

Standard

Yesterday night I finished Heinlein’s famous sci-fi work, “Stranger in a Strange Land”. That’s a classic of the genre, and I can well understand why: solid story, powerful themes, and well balanced angle positioned right between a visionary approach and a more down-to-earth critique to modern society.

To be honest though, the reading of the book took me too many weeks. The plot was not enough catchy at times, and some parts of the story did not absorbed me that much. Still, I enjoyed the kind of hippy twist that the book took in the second half, reminding how much the author was a unconventional 60s liberal, right? Sci-fi was so funny back then.

So, I hope to check more things from this author, to give a more definite opinion.
