Anyone that thinks they would like to start reading science fiction...this is the writer to read...I have everyone of Robert Heinlein's books, including the one that his wife put together for him after he died (nonfiction)...Citizen of the Galaxy is one of his early books...it is good, but then I have never read a bad book by Heinlein....I will not trade my Heinlein books...his books I have collected for over 30 years...I Will Fear No Evil is one of his best....

I do not know if this is a true account or just a novel...but it was so detailed, I have had a hard time reading it...you see the story of the bad Germans and the Jews just trying to survive...it makes you want answers as to how the Holocaust happened and NO ONE stopped it...
