Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Admirably successful…The autobiographical material is consistently superb. The alternate universes are equally well done…The sexuality shows the lusty pleasure in smashing taboos familiar to readers of Stranger in a Strange Land.” Chicago Sun-Times
“A family reunion for Heinlein’s characters…a well-attended gathering.” Houston Post
“A tour de force…In a strange and moving way, To Sail beyond the Sunset may be the finest work in the dean’s lengthy career!” Kansas City Star
“Exuberant and spirited…unquestionably one of the major, defining works of Robert A. Heinlein’s long and successful career.” San Jose Mercury News
“Thought-provoking…Considerable wit and energy!” Newsday
“Absorbing and involving!” Kirkus Reviews
“In To Sail beyond the Sunset, Heinlein continues to assemble most, if not all, the characters he has ever created…Heinlein’s voice and his prose are stronger and fresher than they have been in some time…He remains the master!” Locus
