Methuselah's Children (Future History, Bk 4)
Methuselah's Children - Future History, Bk 4 Author:Robert A. Heinlein A near-immortal group of humans is driven off of Earth by those who fear them, only to find themselves subjected to even more terrors on the alien worlds that they visit.
Against all odds, I rather liked this book. The problems: There were too many loose ends, Lazarus felt like a cardboard cutout of a Heinlein character rather than a real Heinlein character, the ending felt like a spin of the Animanicas' wheel of morality, and dammit, it was too short. The good stuff: Heinlein's writing style has a way of drawing me in and getting me excited about his story even when there are problems and I really wish that he had taken more time and written this to novel length.
