Just finished this last night. Personally I found it alright. The beginning is pretty good. Then a little over half way in there starts to be really long winded segments about religion, government, what it is to be a human, that kind of thing. Not that this is necessarily bad, but from someone that read this 50+ years after it came out, these are things I've heard many times before. The last 1/3 of the book picks up a little again but I found a lot of it kind of boring (but not bad). I'll also give Heinlein props on being slightly ahead of the times with some of this stuff. This book came out in '61 but it feels like something someone would have written during or after the hippie movement.

Reading it right now, don't really know what to think of it yet. Not much in terms of plot, and there isn't really much characterization yet.

I enjoyed The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress, and the librarian who recommended this book to me has pretty great taste, so I'll certainly finish it.
