really liked it
Read from May 28 to June 03, 2010

This is my first attempt at Heinlein. I really liked it. I am looking forward to more. He thinks like me. Is this scary, yes! But it makes me happy. I do recommend this to anyone who enjoys science fiction. My two favorite quotes:

"It had surprised his ancestors that the transported criminals of Botany Bay should develop a high civilization in Australia. Not that Wingate found the phenomenon of Botany Bay surprising - that was history, and history is never surprising - after it happens."

"You have attributed conditions to villainy that simply result from stupidity. It is not even cupidity. It is not cussedness - simple stupidity. I can't prove it to you, but you will learn."
