The Book Shelf: Methuselah's Children by Robert A. Heinlein
Continuing my new found love of Robert A. Heinlein I finished Methuselah's Children this week and found it just a fantastic read. While this tale isn't anywhere near as quotable as The Cat Who Walks Through Walls it is still a strong book. The story beings slowly for a Heinlein book but quickly picks up the pace and from there never stops.
As is usually the case with Heinlein's incredibly interconnected works I find that I have to read another one of his books, Stranger in a Strange Land, to fully appreciate it - which is fine by me as I've yet to be disappointed.
If you're interested in this book then you'll find a lot of the foundational elements for his final series of books that culminates with To Sail Beyond the Sunset (which is also in my reading queue). Here you find the first appearance of the Howard Families, Lazarus Long, and the groundwork for many of his ideas of the World as Myth.
Well worth reading.
