Starman JonesGolden Age of Heinlein this is the so called juvenile written Heinlein always claims just as much for adults that started them all and made Heinlein a legend for multiple generations of reader. While I'm tooling around the world and history of writers I tripped upon Robert Heinlein I decided I had to read at least one so I picked Starman Jones I have to say during the first two chapters I almost stopped reading because I felt like I was back in high school and it just wasn't sitting well with me Then we finally got to space I got it I really enjoyed it The main character a few extra characters and of course space were interesting What didn't work was it feel very old The book it was written in 1951 and I have to say it was very sexist and for someone like me who rarely notices things like that it really bugged me I don't know if I'll read any of his books but I will say I'm really glad I did Robert Heinlein is an amazing writer puts together a beautiful sentence

An SF Juvenile originally published 60 years ago 1953 it shows its age in a few places but was still a wonderful yarn with one of my favorite characters in it Sam Hardly the perfect hero or role model he was a lot of fun showed the main character Max the ropesThe age of the story was most apparent in the technology Max has to study a computer by opening a panel tracing circuits Logs were pulled out of the tables in books Anyone else remember those problems were mostly worked by humans input to the computer in binary Exactly what the poor machine actually did isn't readily apparent but it wasn't much Still it didn't really harm the story even though it was one of the major points that everything revolved around It was interesting because of it Kind of a blast from the past a reminder of how far we've come in such a short timeThe way star commuter ships moved held up pretty well as did the almost military discipline of the ship No women in the ranks but Heinlein does manage to strike a great blow for sexual euality at one point It was masterfully delivered too Unfortunately there was just the oneThere are a lot of good morals running through the story too Kind of hoaky in some ways but I liked it I originally read these stories as a kid aspired to be like Heinlein's boy heroes I think there are far worse role models He addresses systems injustice how a boy with few choices lies cheats his way into his dream He also pays the price for doing so but gets his dream Rather neat IMO Great book I plan on listening to a few of these I read The Star Beast within the last year or two felt about the same These books have stood the test of time far better than his later books IMO
