Once again, the author of Stranger in a Strange Land and Starship Troopers displays his genius. The Door into Summer proves why Robert Heinlein's books have sold more than 50 million copies, winning countless awards, and earning him the title of Grand Master of Science Fiction.
Absolutely brilliantly written! Entertaining from track 1 to the very last sentence. This is one of those books that you look forward to encountering traffic while listening to it, just so you can get in one more track. My only regret after discovering this author is that Door Into Summer is the only book by this author carried in the MP3 section of Booksfree.com.
I am a fan of the time-travel genre and I really enjoyed this one. A fun story that's well-written and easy to follow with an ending that wraps everything up nicely. The technical explanations of robotics was a bit over my head, but it did not cloud the story. This is one of those books you have to read a second time because things are going on in the background you don't find out about until later! It's fun to see a story from two different points of view...you'll see what I mean!
