Wonder where to dive into Heinlein's justly famous adventure novels This is the place!

"Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done. One could write a history of science in reverse by assembling the solemn pronouncements of highest authority about what could not be done and could never happen."
—Robert A. Heinlein, from The Rolling Stones.

    Young adult fans will get plenty of satisfaction from the reprint of Robert A. Heinlein¿s ROLLING STONES

    The Stone family of seven consists of a grandma, two parents, three sons and one daughter living on the moon. The middle kids, teen twins Castor and Pollux, are tired of their bossy older sister and their nosy younger brother. They decide to make money as independent space traders by buying a vessel and flying to the Asteroids. Dad says no insisting they go to an earth bound school and get an education; but Grandma Hazel supports their daring scheme with one annoying (at least to the twins) modification; the magnificent seven band together on this solar system venture.<BR/><BR/>The entire family leaves their moon based home for Mars and beyond. The septet continually argues and has spats, but come together when emergencies arise. For instance the twins almost fail to leave Mars as they break the law angering the Martians when they tried to skip out on the import tax after selling bikes; Grandma Hazel saves their respective butts. When they reach the Asteroid Belt, Grandmother Hazel and the youngest Lowell vanish. The remaining Stones in a frenzy search for the missing pair.<BR/><BR/>This exciting middle school science fiction focuses on the family who fly the solar system together stay together. The seven Stones are each fully developed with unique characteristics. Their escapdes at their lunar home, on Mars, and the Asteroid Belt make for a fun trip through space. Young adult fans will get plenty of satisfaction from the reprint of Robert A. Heinlein¿s ROLLING STONES.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    Classic Heinlein - Worth reading again or for the first time

    I first read this book in the late 60's. Probably 5th or 6th grade. With the Apollo missions going on still I felt that by the time I graduated from High School we would be living on the moon and I would be an going to college in space. Of course that was not the case but this story reminds me of the dream and looks back at a time when people looked out for each other and enjoyed life to its fullest. Not as dated as I would have thought but the technology is nothing like we have today. Spooling voice and sending it to the radio drama network...very early 50's not even TV.

    I enjoyed reading this again. Similar to what John Varley has done with the Red planet books...it makes you want to get up and go...into space.
