I legitimately enjoyed The Moon is a Harsh Mistress when I read it early this year. It's an exciting story about revolution on the Moon-- a young man, a sexy tall blonde, and an AI liberate Luna from the Earth's tyrannical reign of essentially slave labor. It is hilarious how much Heinlein hates women, though.
Oh, I read that one in late middle school/early high school and I remember liking it. Maybe I’ll read it again, though SciFi Summer 2014 is gonna start winding down as school approaches, and I have a lot more I want to tackle. Dhalgren, I hear, is especially monstrous and time-consuming.
I really liked his juvenile/YA books when I was a kid. They really did it for me. They’re all about children who stowaway on rocketships and hitchhike across the stars.
In addition to being a misogynist in his books Heinlein in real life was a big fan of giant sex orgies (but who isn’t), which leads me to believe that he viewed women merely as objects. Woof.
