And I am still too wordy in a private communication such as this, or in conversation. Stranger in a Strange Land was one of the first scifi books I ever read as a kid - and a bit over my head at the time!

An odd mix of semi-conservative morals there is some focus on homophobic concepts, though it seems less anti-gay and more pro-straight , religious iconography, strong liberal morals, anarchy, libertarianism, sex, and scifi advanced enough to fall under Clarke's Third Law. This has a very moving message, deeply engaging characters, a poignant and impactful story, good development arcs, great worldbuilding, and an alternative view of the world and of humanity.

At times it is hard to say if it's a scifi story or a fantasy one - depends on your point of view. Mike and Jubal are two of the most likeable characters ever written in my opinion and their development over the course of the story paints it as a coming of age for both of them, in some lights. Despite the tender age at which I first read it, I would not consider this a book for children in any way, not just because of the R-rated material but also because much of the book would likely go over their heads or leave them confused.

This is not a boy's adventure story like many of Heinlein's works nor does it feature incest or other strange behaviors like some of his more adult works - but it is definitely one of the most 'adult' of them all, in content but also in message and theory.

This is a book I think everyone should read, even if some of it is rather dated these days.

Stranger in a Strange Land

Changed my mind and life as a young thing and continues to entertain and move me now. If you can stomach the material - and unless you are very delicate you should be able to - this is not one to miss. I think this book over 40 years ago, the first time, I think I was abut I loved it.

It was difficult to understand in places, but if you read hard core sci-fi, you know that there are things you just aren't supposed to get yet Then I read it again when I first got married six or so years later.

The second time, it was like reading a whole new book, because I was a different person by then. So, now I am 60, and I decided to read it again, and maybe it's due to the short term memory loss that comes from growing up in the '70s, or growing old period Keep in mind that this book was written in the early '60's. There were no desktop computers, no cell phones, no handheld calculators, or digital recording devices.

There were no microwave ovens, or video games, or GPS mapping. It was a different world, but I think that made people smarter. You had to know how to access information all on your own. You had to read a paper map to get somewhere, anywhere you wanted to go. You had to look up people and businesses in the phone book and when a human being answered the phone you had to actually converse with them, not just rattle off what you wanted to say and hang up.

So all of those things affect the flavor of this novel, and the result is quite enlightening. Just read it! See all 1, reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
