Heinlein It's time to prepare for the 1943 retro Hugo awards that will be presented in 2018 Why? Why not? Some books deserve love even if they're before the Hugos even beganIn this case novels published in 1942 are eligible Books like CS Lewis's Screwtape Letters are technically eligible but really shouldn't be There's nothing much SF about the religi

Read Beyond This Horizon review Å PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Robert A. Heinlein Robert A. Heinlein ↠ 4 Summary In a world that has long since banished disease hunger and war But no one counted on w. Yeah it s kind of a mess And remember Heinlein has a certain sort of disturbingly sexist attitude doesn t understand women at all certainly the only armed one is seen as erm eccentric to put it mildlyFemales don t need guns because men aka people are all about being protective and chivalrous except when they re spanking the girls or otherwise dominating them that is I did like Women will forgive anything Otherwise the race would have died out long ago And he gets a few other things right like how to read that resource which replaces newspapers And I appreciate his view of amiable eugenics as it seems carefully thought out given the context of the times For example this was written a few years before it was figured out that genes are made of DNA and well before the structure of DNA was determined to be the double helix And so the methods of genetic selection described are erm interestingHeinlein is well read and clever It could be argued that he s smart He s not wise thoughAnd finance is not his forte is description of the Utopia in which nobody goes hungry and the government prints money when statisticians tell it to is implausible A polite society is an armed society is nonsense The low incidence of atheism is uaintBut mostly it s both BS and lame I guess I ll keep working through the stack of Heinlein books I own but without high hopes for the enjoyment I d expect given his popularity and given the fact that I do remember liking him when I was a teen

Read Beyond This Horizon review Å PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Robert A. Heinlein Robert A. Heinlein ↠ 4 Summary Hat might happen if this superman got recruited by a cabal of dissident revolutionarie. It was a delightful surprise to find that there are still Heinlein stories that I hadn t read in 2010 I would have bet against it It makes me really appreciative that Audible Frontiers is releasing some of the oldest and less popular books in audioThat said this was one of my least favorite Heinlein novels I m such a huge fan that this is sort of a bad sex conclusion in that it just can t be that bad but still it suffers by comparison It feels like an early groping toward characteristics in which he would ultimately become a nearly unparalleled masterTake the character development This is usually the best aspect of a Heinlein novel The characters in this novel have some remarkable aspects of development but are still flatter and less sympathetic than what I expect from HeinleinSimilarly Heinlein typically creates startling vivid worlds extending in plausible ways from his own generally colored by his own startling benevolence and sense of hope There are interesting aspects of this world from his early occupation with social credit explained thoroughly in his posthumously published first work For Us the Living A Comedy of Customs He also creates an extremely mannered society typical of many of his works and backed up by a well armed citizenry It also presents a eugenic society that is rather utopian rather than disaster because of the high virtue of the society While ideas like this are perfectly integrated into plots and the lives of the characters in later works here the ideas hang like window dressing There are spectacles such as some nasties wanting to grab hold of control of the genetic program and destroy as side effect the liberty of the society which could become a major theme of the novel and highlight the dangers of such practices in the hands of a realistic citizenry Instead the rebellion is uietly put down and the story moves along forgetting the incidentSome of his early and limited books are explicitly aimed at juveniles and the limitations aren t weaknesses but rather intentionally aiming at a limited audience Also early works are mostly limited by the censorship of his day both explicit and market but both real Neither seems to fit here Instead this seems like groping toward the future talent Heinlein demonstrates Hardened fans will see glimmers of what future work will come to hold but ultimately this work fails to deliver2014 I decided to revisit this and while my comments above all apply I felt a bit warmer toward it I can t really explain why The characters seemed a bit stronger this time and I was caught up in the story It had been long enough I had pretty much forgotten most everything so I got to experience anew in a sense2016 This really holds up with rereading

Read Beyond This Horizon review Å PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Robert A. Heinlein Robert A. Heinlein ↠ 4 Summary Hamilton Felix is the ultimate man the end product of highly refined applied genetics. Beyond this Horizon by Robert A Heinlein was written ten years after Huxley s Brave New World and the influence from this genetic and sociological masterpiece is evident Also noteworthy is that the book was published during WWII and this may comprise Heinlein s response to Hitler s Nietzschian policies especially ideas about elitist racism and possible supermen Cannot help wonder if Woody Allen thought of this book while producing Sleeper as at least a couple of scenes reminded me of the 1970s film though the film was apparently loosely based upon Wells The Sleeper Awakes Heinlein would come back to this theme several times most notably in Methuselah s Children and Time Enough for Love This is one of his earlier works and the reader can also see glimpses of his strong libertarian principles taking shape in the narrative Being one of his earlier works though RAH had yet to come into his own in terms of characterization flat here but will blossom into masterpieces The Moon is a Harsh Mistress and Stranger in a Strange Land about twenty years later The plot is also disjointed and incomplete but all in all this is a good entry in the RAH pantheon and a fan will enjoy
