The Moon is a Harsh Mistress
reviewed on + 70 more book reviews

In what is considered one of his most hair-raising, thought-provoking and outrageous adventures, Robert A. Heinlein tells the strange story of an even stranger world--21st century Luna, a harsh penal colony where a revolt is plotted between a bashful computer and a ragtag collection of maverick humans. A revolt that goes beautifully until the inevitable happens. But the problem with the inevitable is that it always happens.
