Another classic that I can live without. I read this book because it was recommended (by every science fiction source out there). This was one of Heinlein's weakest (in my opinion) and in spite of all these kudos...I "greatly dislike" this one.
Why? I really didn't get into it from the word go. It's not really representative of (at least most of) Heinlein's work. It's slow moving, preachy, and for me just flat annoying. I didn't like the "Oh so loved" main character, and didn't get into the story.
My opinion...didn't like it, can't recommend it. Decide for yourself I suppose.
