Description: Robert A. Heinlein was the most influential science fiction writer of his era, an influence so large that, as Samuel R. Delany notes, "modern critics attempting to wrestle with that influence find themselves dealing with an object rather like the sky or an ocean." He won the Hugo Award for best novel four times, a record that still stands. The Moon is a Harsh Mistress was the last of these Hugo-winning novels, and it is widely considered his finest work.It is a tale of revolution, of the rebellion of the former Lunar penal colony against the Lunar Authority that controls it from Earth.

"22.2. I remember putting this book down fast when I was a teenager, because I simply found it very flat and boring. Nowadays it's way easier to enjoy about this revolutionary tale when I actually get most (hopefully) of the real life references he's making.

This is my second and for all intents last reading of Heinlein, DNF Starship Troopers and this was a terrible drudge. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------"
