The Moon is indeed a Harsh Mistress ! I realize that now, after having finished this book. I'm sorry to say it was a little too predictable. Hopefully without spoiling the fun for future readers - everything went so easily - this future "American Revolution" as it actually was - like changing channels on the TV. However, I've got to hand it to Mr. Heinlein, he's was a very good sci-fi author. Probably the best . The Books about Lazarus Long are more than just books, they're ...You Name It !!!!
