Between Planets Author:Robert A. Heinlein ROBERT A. HEINLEIN — ____________________ — "TOPNOTCH SCIENCE FICTION." — ---Booklist — How does it feel to be living far in the future-to be a citizen of an Interplanetary Federation? Robert A. Heinlein shows us, and shows, too, what might happen under such an organization, if it should dis?regard the rights of the individual. It is Venus that rebe... more »ls and starts a revolution.
Don, the hero of this story, is a citizen of the Federation but not of any planet. His mother was born on Venus, his father on Earth, and Don himself was born on a space ship in trajectory between planets. This curious citizenship makes difficul?ties for him when the rebellion starts on Venus. Whether or not Don can resolve his future allegiance to his best advan?tage remains to be seen.
"An enthralling story, with the added de?light of some cheerfully satiric touches."
