Hi everyone. This is for discussion of July's group book:
Double Star by Robert Heinlein

Unless it’s a very general comment make sure you use spoiler code.
< spoiler>Comment< /spoiler> Without the spaces.

As it's now fully into Summer (where I am anyway) I thought a older, slightly slimmer classic would work well.

I'm a little worried about this one. I read a few of Heinlein's novels and 'juveniles' as a teenager and I enjoyed them but I'm pretty sure many of the points that he was trying to make went over my head. I just enjoyed them as adventure stories.
Fast forward a few deca ..... umm years to earlier this year when I read a couple of his stories and didn't like them very much. They felt very dated and they weren't much fun. The introduction states that this was written before the writings that became more controversial and that this is more of a fun novel so I guess we'll see how it goes.

I know about Heinlein by reputation but haven't read much by him though own quite a few so need to really get reading. I'm quite neutral on him for now.
