    My introduction to Heinlien

    I found "Have SpaceSuit will travel" in my gradeschool library. The story of a young man who gets an old NASA spacesuit, and his resultant adventures.

    I remember this very fondly, and reccomend it highly.

    Good book for older child or young adult

    Written in 1958, the story is surprisingly current in many respects. An eighteen-year old boy gets involved in inter-stellar adventure by being hard-working, intelligent, brave, and lucky. It is an inspiring and fun tale.

    Top Notch Sci-Fi

    I read this book when I was 11 or 12 and now am 63 and read it again. I bought it for my 9 yo daughter. The current technology still has not caught up with the book and probably will not for many centuries. Heinlein is one of the greatest sci-fi authors IMO.

    A great classic for all ages!

    I read this when I was nine and have read it several times since. It is a timeless classic that never grows old.

    excellent Heinlein work

    One of Heinlein's juvenile SF novels, this is one of my favorites from when I was a high school teen just getting into SF. Great read, and I still have it on my shelf.

    Have Book-Will Read

    Not Heinlein's best. Not the best writing style. Not the best characters. Not the best plot. But very darn close!!!
    A great adventure book for kids, Have Spacsuit-Will Travel has both strong male and female characters. Dialouge is wonderful and seems very real, and the ending is one of those "feel-goods."
    A great read for any kid, or any adult for that matter!

    Fun book highly recommended

    This is screwball comedy. What the protagonists go through is beyond belief unless you read this with the idea it was written with tongue very firmly in Heinlein's cheek. A "Star Wars" adventure before star wars.

    A great introductory book for younger readers

    I remember reading this when I was 8 and it is what got me into Sci-fi in the first place.
