Peter Tillman I loved this book as a kid. Now, not so much. Movie was just OK.

This one, even after so many years, still pushes some of my buttons.

William The book was a great Heinlein for me as a teen.

The movie was a terrible misfire. I understand what Verhoven was trying to do, but he missed his mark.

Thank you for the review!

It's still quite readable today. But I'm an Heinlein fan. What do I know...?

William I noticed! Such a large part of who I am is due to Heinlein!

Yep. Me too. I was hooked for life at a very young age...
