Double Star

Robert A. Heinlein
Double Star Cover

The Tale of the Great Lorenzo!


I think Double Star might be my favorite Heinlein novel to date. It seems to lean more towards the juvenile end of the Heinlein spectrum, but it still engages with some political issues that were likely especially relevant at the time of its publication. The story is ridiculous at times, but it is fast-paced and I found it very easy to get caught up in the excitement. Some character portrayals, such as the childish secretary Penny, are a bit tiresome, but they never seem mean-spirited. Like most novels, Double Star is a product of time period, but I think it still offers a fun experience for modern-day science fiction readers.
