I mean, it's pretty easy to pick out and recommend Asimov, Bradbury and Clarke books for new young readers, but Heinlein has always seemed a little harder to figure out. Once you've narrowed down the choices to his early "juvenile" novels, I guess it turns on personal taste. What's particularly fun is that for most reviewers that choice turns on which novel they most remember from their own youth. I would pick "Tunnel in the Sky". Some go for "Have Spacesuit - Will Travel". Others are partial to "Podkayne of Mars". Then you have "Space Cadet" and "Farmer in the Sky".
Whichever one you pick, I think you have a good chance of pleasing your young reader, and maybe you'll get him or her interested in "old-fashioned" science based sci fi.

This quite short book is actually a little beauty. Wonderful characters, brilliant scenery and a story line that leaves you hanging!Published on 12 Sept. 2002
I love Heinlein's fiction. He is the great author. But this book is not the one of his best ones. There is action, there is story, it's nice to read, and it's not bad if you have... Read morePublished on 24 Aug. 1998
