What did you think of them?

(Musta liked at least one of em, since you read a second.)


I've been recovering from knee surgery so I ordered a nice big box from Amazon :). I liked The Door Into Summer in terms of the idea, and the beginning, and Pete the cat being cool. But I kept thinking that if he already went back in time then when he went back in time he would run into himself back in time. See? It didn't seem to fit together, and the end was pat. But not a bad 2 hour read.

The Moon is a Harsh Mistress was pretty good. Some of the military stuff glossed me over, and I kept hoping that Mike the computer would pull something funny at the end (maybe he did), but overall I found it engrossing - I always give major points for originality and so reading Heinlein's works is overdue for me. I liked the way he got really into the social structure, even the little things about how people act and how quickly, like just 2 or 3 generations, customs and language can change. That made it very real for me. And the computer really is a wonderful character. I was bummed when I saw in this thread that Mike doesn't get his own sequel!
