A very interesting story. It is dated but still riveting!

A classic Heinlein, take one 1950's leave it to beaver family of four, a dinner guest and the kitchen help, add an atomic war and a well stocked bomb shelter. Shake well and displace a thousand years into the future. Good stuff. A bit odd at times but thats what you get when you stir in social commentary with a good survival/adventure/apocalypse theme.

More Libertarian commentary on race and gender in the 1960s US, but a fun read, nonetheless.

This was a great book. Full of surprises. If you liked Stranger is a Strange Land, you will like this book.

Wow. So many controversial topics touched on, it's hard to remember them all. This book reminded me of how much of a free-reign Sci Fi authors (and other authors) have. And the implications for 'thought' are huge. Thanks Robert Heinlein!

This may be the most unbelieveable book ever. Bored from the start and never got past how it just never made sense. Stilted conversations and a boring scenario.
