By Robert Heinlein
I read this book because it was recommended to me, but it is not a book that I would recommend to anyone else in return. It is not amusing, which I was hoping it would be, and as far as the adventure goes, it doesn't stack up to other books in the genre. I also found the premise that E.C. was the only guy in all the known universes who could accomplish the mission to be rather unbelievable. And finally, I didn't care for Heinlein's hero beating his lover's butt when she does something he didn't like. I found it dismaying, condescending and stupid. I know the author was a creature of his time, but that kind of sexism in a novel is just off-putting.
