This is akin to ... being lectured on a topic you’re peripherally acquainted with and completely bored by ... ugh, the 1950s. Really, Heinlein, let’s recount OCS lectures on morality and duty. Awesome. What a thrilling read.

I was skeptical at first, but I'm enjoying this more than I anticipated!

There is quite a few things that could have been removed. Authors of these times would do less telling, more showing.
I do understand that this is one of the first times science fiction started to explore politics and deeper social questions that make the best science fiction of today.

Teilweise schon harter Tobak, der Verhoevens parodierender Umgang mit der Materie für die Filmadaption nachvollziehbar macht.

"Ich kann nur vermuten, dass die in der Evolution bewährte Methode, dem Bewusstsein der Jugend soziale Tugend und Respekt vor dem Gesetz einzuflößen, einer vorwissenschaftlichen, pseudo-professionellen Klasse, die sich "Sozialarbeiter" oder manchmal "Kinderpsychologe" nannte, nicht behagte."

Loving it so far, it's definitely aged well! I'll have a more complete book review as I finish this novel. I'm reading it on my Kindle and listening to the companion audiobook, for whatever that's worth. I'm glad that some friends insisted that I read this seminal work of science fiction.

The last 25% is going to have to be pretty spectacular for me to give this book more than one star.

At long last there seems to be some SF and action ahead. By now I am pretty fed up with military theory and obscure thoughts on society and politics. In my memory this book was way better. Lets see how much can be saved by the finish.

Wow!
"Never mind, they paid for their folly." - The words of a teacher of History and Moral Philosophy. What about? Democracy.
This Heinlein guy really was something. I think he actually expected democracy to fail when he wrote this book in 1959, seemed to even hope it. Pretty bad.
I wonder if he ever thought about the similarities of the military he describes and the (so-called) communist systems of Eastern Europe.

Rereading this for the first time in english. First class military SF, just as I remembered it. Of course, the opinions of RAH are pretty laughable, and probably not only by todays view, but that you just have to ignore or shrug off. (Children need to be beaten, otherwise they can't learn; soldiers are morally superior; violence solves problems; ...)

Zim felt depressed because Ted was flogged. Zim thought it was all his fault that he didn't beat Ted down before he assaulting Him.
It made me suprised why Zim will blame the responsibility to himself.
He appears severe but mercy in his heart.

Might be the worst book I have ever read and not wanted to stop reading. I want to hate it. I want to be embarrassed by posting that I'm reading this. But I don't hate it and I don't care. It's either terrible or great.

“The rifles used to simulate aimed weapons were loaded with blanks except one in five hundred rounds at random." This excerpt show me how dangerous the practice was. No one can predict whether the bullet will hit you in the next second.

Very enjoyable. I heard this book was controversial when published, because of the possible fascist tilt. Either way, politics aside as they should be, the book was a great sci-if book. Ahead of its time.

Now, the protagonist is describing the process of training. I like the sensitive details. Author used a lot of sentences to describe the feeling of protagonist.

I can't decide if this book is terrible or great... but I also can't stop reading it.

I don't understand why there is so much non-sci-fi stuff in this book. It's so boring. Just a guy rambling about being in military training. Tons of exposition.
