Winner of the 1967 Hugo award, this novel marked Heinlein's partial return to his best form. He draws many historical parallels with the War of Independence, and clearly shows his own libertarian political views. In what is considered one of his most hair-raising, thought-provoking, and outrageous adventures, the master of modern Sci-Fi tells the strange story of an even stranger world--twenty-first century Luna, a harsh penal colony where a revolt is plotted between a bashful computer and a ragtag collection of maverick humans--a revolt that goes beautifully until the inevitable happens. But the problem with the inevitable is that it always happens.

A brilliant exploration of a libertarian utopia created by the harsh environment of the Moon.

The reader's Russian accent is annoying at first, but you get used to it. Don't give up. This is a great book.

This story makes me grin every time I read it, and this audiobook recording really adds something. The accents are delicious, the characters distinct. There's a good reason why this one's a classic. Enjoyed it fully.
