One of Heinleins best-loved works, The Rolling Stones follows the rollicking adventures of the Stone family as they tour the solar system. It doesnt seem likely for twins to have the same middle name. Even so, its clear that Castor and Pollux Stone both have Trouble written in that spot on their birth certificates. Of course, anyone whos met their grandmother Hazel would know they came by it honestly. Join the Stone twins as they connive, cajole, and bamboozle their way across the solar system in the company of the most high-spirited and hilarious family in all of science fiction. It all starts when the twins decide that life on the lunar colony is too dull and buy their own spaceship to go into business for themselves. Before long they are headed for the furthest reaches of the stars, with stops on Mars, some asteroids, Titan, and beyond. This lighthearted tale has some of Heinleins sassiest dialoguenot to mention the famous flatcats incident. Oddly enough, its also a true example of real family values, for when youre a Stone, your family is your highest priority.
