4.0 out of 5 stars A Long Story, 2 Feb 2007
This review is from: Time Enough for Love: The Lives of Lazarus Long : A Novel (Hardcover)
This is the story of Lazarus Long, the Eternal Man. In return for finding things that he has never done before, Long perhaps an amalgam of all the characters in Heinlein's novels agrees to tell the story of his lives. As is usual in Heinlein's novels there is quite a bit of the iconoclast himself in the major character. Certainly enough of his views that interupt the storyline periodically in the shape of the thoughts of Lazarus Long.

For all this and a certain amount of pushing the boundaries this is a novel you will either love or hate. It is a strange mixture of ultra conservative and liberal. It is not the most accessable of Heinleins books but it does reward pursuit to the end. There is intelligence, romance, adventure, pathos and a fair dollop of moralising but it can be read on many levels even if a certain elastic morality is required on the part of the reader. Worth it in the long run.
