Recommended for: People familiar with Robert Heinlein, people willing to accept broadly impossible sci-fi plots
Read in June, 2008

This is kind of two separate books smooshed together. The first half is pretty straight-forward space adventures, and then everything gets weird after that. Not bad, just weird and very separate-feeling from the first half. This is not uncommon with Heinlein, and it didn't ruin the book or anything, but I did kind of feel betrayed that the first half was somewhat meaningless. Also, the ending left me hanging more than I would have liked. I plan on reading the rest of this "series" (having already read Time Enough for Love a year or two ago) so perhaps that will complete the picture for me.

Overall: enjoyable read, but somewhat unsatisfying.
