Time Enough for Love

Postby Goodwolf » Sun Jun 07, 2009 12:18 am

By Robert Heinlein.

Read. This. Book.

You like Firefly? This book has just about everything you could ask for, except the Chinese.

Semi Western frontier planets? Check
HiTech "central" planets? Check
Big Damn Hero? Big Damn Check.
Reavers? Check (though not called as such)
Powerful Courtesan class? Check
Space Travel? Check
Ship as Character? Check

It's worth noting that in the Official Map of the Verse, there is a Heinlein star with a few planets named after characters from this book.

I don't think you'll waste your time reading this.

No local libraries had it, so I got a copy through interlibrary loan. Just read the first few pages yesterday.

It starts off kinda slow, I'll admit, but when you get to the story of Happy Valley, you'll swear it's Mal you're reading about.

Cool. I'm looking forward to it. I don't mind if books start of slow, especially if there might actually be some sort of payoff later.
