Scott's Review:
4.5 out of 5 stars on March 30, 2000

Fullness will come. Having dealt for much of my life online, I recognized many of the phrases and vocabulary that I see online in this book. I now know what "Grok" is. The story itself is very well told. Basically, it's about a man, who was born on Mars, and raised by Martians, who comes back to earth. When he returns, he finds his culture, that of the Martians, radically different from terrain culture. In the end, he tries to reconcile the difference, for the betterment of all of mankind. Heinlein uses this basic premise as a very good method to delve into many of our society's issues, including such issues as sexuality, religion, and science. A very good read, and in my opinion, the ending was nearly perfect.
