A solid enjoyable read. A little slow in a couple spots. I wish Heinlein would have spent more time on the character's relationships and motives. Even now I'm not sure exactly why the protagonist, Davis, did everything he did, but I sure enjoyed the ride.

It also had a really fun happy postmillenial, and almost ethical-judicial end to it. It's good to have some hope for the future. Never stop looking for that door to summer. ( )

This story is definitely amusing fluff, which seems right for a short sci-fi novel written in the 1950's. I best liked Pete the cat and that the story does not take itself too seriously. Its attitude toward its female characters is pretty awful, though, even taking into account that was written in the 50's. I have the uncomfortable feeling that RAH was a founding member of the MRA society. The ladies are all evaluated first on their physical attractiveness, and I say "ladies" loosely because this also applies to an 11 year old girl. The only smart woman is a "man-eater" caricature, who gets her just desserts as she ends up old, ugly, man-less, and poor, but still desperately trying to work her wiles on the main character, so that he can give her the full rejection. And the attitude toward the little girl is just creepy, as she is primarily described in terms of her future desirability as a sexual companion. She and the main character (a man in his 30's), get "engaged" just before he goes into suspended animation, and he gives her instructions to also put herself into suspended animation when she's 21 so they can wake up together and get married. Which they both do. And even then, she's treated as though she's still that little girl, only with a sexy adult body. Gross.

Audiobook, borrowed from my public library via Overdrive. The performance by Patrick Lawlor is excellent - he reads with just the right amount of self-aware amusement - and dragged this book back up to 3 stars to redeem it from its miserable female characters. ( )

Creative exploration of engineering, Time Travel and Cold Sleep in Fiction, but marred by patriarchal roles and misogyny as essential parts of societal customs. Typical Heinlein

The cat is the only character I remember, but not the plot. ( )

Le suicide est une expérience trop définitive, même en des circonstances mathématiquement intrigantes.
Despite the crepehangers, romanticists, and anti-intellectuals, the world steadily grows better because the human mind, applying itself to environment, makes it better. With hands...with tools...with horse sense and science and engineering.
