Just finished reading the Moon is a Harsh Mistress. This is part of my continuing quest to read all of Heinlein's works. This is the first one I am readings from the Virginia Edition series. I would like to read them all someday, and I will.
This novel is one of the three that Heinlein is most known for; the other two being Starship Troopers and Stranger in a Strange Land. Stranger is next I think for me.

My rating: <a href="https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/5286873368">4 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
My first Virginia Edition novel from Heinlein. I want to read them all. This is good, classic Heinlein. Excellent science fiction with a heavy dose of politics and philosophy. Not sure that I liked it as well as Starship Troopers, but it was solid. It has been a while since I have read ST too, so my opinion may have changed on that one. What is interesting is that a lot of the events that I am sure felt fantastical in the novel from 1966, have already come true or are well on their way. <br /><br />Bottom line. Highly recommended. One if the three cornerstone Heinlein novels, I plan to read Stranger in a Strange Land next.
