it was amazing

After I Will Fear No Evil I was hesitant to pick up another Heinlein book, but we have so many on our shelves. Heinlein spends too much time emphasizing Star’s inherent femininity, making her cloying and obnoxiously obsequious. However there’s never a point where she seems to need saving and she puts a great deal of energy into broadening her hero’s horizons, expanding his mind. The twist at the end is quite suitably pulled off and definitely worth sticking around for if only because it reveals a refreshingly intelligent reason for Star’s temperament. It’s also worth sticking around for because in the end this is not a story about men and women but a clever, cutting critique of accepted moral and social conventions.
