Scott's Review:
4 out of 5 stars on February 7, 2003

This is in many regards what I think of when I think a science fiction book should be. At its core, a science fiction story should take some element dreamed up by scientists and put it in the middle of a fictional story. That and the story as a whole should be good.

This is a really well done story. As I've found with much of Heinlein's other works, it's very easy to understand the main characters, and the science element isn't overdone. It's still a story about human emotions and struggles.

I don't want to spoil the story for the sake of my review, but suffice it to say, it's a very engaging story about a brilliant inventor who goes on to find his door into summer after looking in all of the wrong places. It's one of a very few books I've read that when I'm done, I feel I've read a good complete story, yet I want to read more just because I feel cheated that the book had to end sooner or later. I highly recommend this book for science fiction fans.
