Recommended for: Nobody... especially not fans of either Heinlein or Robinson
Read from August 10 to 16, 2008 — I own a copy, read count: 1

This was another "found" Heinlein manuscript that should never have seen the light of the day. I'm not sure what Robinson was thinking when he agreed to "complete" it as the story and characters had been "completed" in three other (much Much MUCH better) books by Heinlein before his death!
This is an almost pornographic look into the writing process. This was a second or third draft AT BEST... and it is fairly obvious where Spider put his two cents in... it's like a poorly PhotoShopped insert into the story.

This came out to sell on Heinlein's name and heritage... possibly to benefit his foundation. I hope so! I wasted money in purchasing it for a good read.
