That was one of my favorite Heinlein books. Loved the ideas presented and cried at the end.

Yep. I hadn't read it in several years and figured it was time.

I really must try Heinlein again. So much of his stuff is so very techno I just can't connect to it, but goodness knows he's a superb writer. Have never read Moon is a Harsh Mistress, thanks for the recommendation folks.

Thanks to Kater for this. I'm now reading John Scalzi's Agent to the Stars and loving it. He's a very clever writer.

Finished up Neal Asher's Gridlinked and really liked it. Lots of action.
