The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Heinlein… has the ability to see technologies just around the bend. That, combined with his outstanding skill as a writer and engineer-inventor, produces books that are often years ahead of their time."
The Wall Street Journal
"One of the grand masters of science fiction."

    Greatest possible introduction into time travel!

    This was my first book on the subject of time travel, and I have been fascinated by it ever since. When compared to todays stories of such science-fiction, it is simplistic and almost childish, but I loved it, and have read it many times over the years. I enjoyed it more than any of Heinlein's other books.

    A Bit Dated But...

    Still a personal favorite. Refreshingly chauvinistic and written before writers began mixing their pronouns. Pure fantasy (a guy and a cat? come on!) but still a good read for those of us still able to suspend our disbelief.

    well written books

    I think that this was one of Heinleins better books. It kept my attention through the whole thing, and I really enjoyed it.

    Love Heinlein, but this isn't on his Hit List, try "Job" instead.

    Would have been a good read in the 70s or even the 80s, but falls flat today as a book about "the future" world of 2000. With no mention of computers, internet, or cell phones, it becomes apparent that artists, authors, and brilliant people, have no clue about the real future.

    If you'd like a really fun Heinlein read, try his 1984 book Job: A Comedy of Justice...one of the finest books I've ever read, hands down. One of the few books I ever cared to read again 20 years later...and it still rang true.

    Rikki Tikki I feel dirty

    I loved this book when I was young, but even then thought there was something wrong about it. Even with the time travel, it's still an attempt to turn Lolita into a True Love Story. Nabokov, at least, knew better. Ultimately, it's a fine introduction to Heinlein, including the peccadillos that have not served him well. But I would probably try the uninitiated young reader on Podkayne first.
