Tim B

A sixties classic

by Tim B on Aug 22, 2013

Though dated in some ways when it came out, Heinlein's classic still resonates with existential and cosmic wit, pungent satire and thoughtful but humorous sallies into the worlds of sex, politics and religion. If you haven't sampled Heinlein's classic yet, try it and be prepared for a thoughtful and entertaining experience.

Martian Travel Anyone???

by Beverly on Nov 18, 2010

This is a book where you wonder what is on the next page. It makes you think about religion and what we consider to be normal behavior. Young and old alike will find this an interesting read.

Old Classic Just as good second time around

by catlady11 on Sep 30, 2010

I reread this for the first time since I was 19 and thoroughly enjoyed it all over again.

Stranger gets less strange with age

by Carol B on Sep 3, 2010

I remember this book from my youth, when it was thought slightly shocking, if ok because only science fiction. Now we've heard it before, but the book is still a great classic of science fiction. Some of the discs were slightly defective, so I had to skip a bit, but not too bad.

Still great after 30 years!!!

by KathyS on Apr 30, 2009

I read this book at least thirty years ago. I don't know what triggered my urge to read Heinlein again but I bought 3 of his books from Albris! However, Stranger in a Strange Land will always be one of my favorite S/F stories. It has it all - Martians, space travel, mystery, murder, intrigue, angels, magic! Add a sly slam to organized religion and a beautiful love story and there you have it - something for all ages, gender, reading level...
