My Spouse Introduced Me...

My spouse introduced me to Heinlein's work back when we were just getting to know each other.  I've since been gobbling them down and after years have re-read many of them repeatedly.

I've never been a huge fan of science fiction writing until Heinlein's stories were shown to me.  The more science, less fantasy style of them sparked my interest in SciFi readings and I've enjoyed acquainting myself with a few other authors who lean that direction.

I enjoy his characters greatly, especially his realistic females.  So far they are the most honestly and accurately portrayed I've ever come across.

Amusing and often thought-provoking, whatever your own opinions on a subject tackled are...

<br />
the next after noon we were sitting on the boat dock as the adults put stuff away and she came out and sat beside me withher head on my lap and started to read stranger in a strange land out loud to me<br />
<br />
the next 7 days followed the rounte pretty much paper dolls in the house when adults were not talking with us or once i could take the boat out by my self we would go to an island not far behinde the cabin and beach the boat and read to each other<br />
