He was a four-time winner of the Hugo Award for his novels Stranger in a Strange Land (1961), Starship Troopers (1959), Double Star (1956), and The Moon is a Harsh Mistress (1966). His Future History series, incorporating both short stories and novels, was first mapped out in 1941. The series charts the social, political, and technological changes shaping human society from the present through several centuries into the future.
Robert A. Heinlein's books were among the first works of science fiction to reach bestseller status in both hardcover and paperback. he continued to work into his eighties, and his work never ceased to amaze, to entertain, and to generate controversy. By the time hed died, in 1988, it was evident that he was one of the formative talents of science fiction: a writer whose unique vision, unflagging energy, and persistence, over the course of five decades, made a great impact on the American mind.
If you are a Heinlein fan, and have read the books I mentioned, you will enjoy this book.
This book started off great but, after a few pages things begin to go downhill fast and that was too bad becuase the potential was there.
Even the title of the book is strange because the "cat who can walk through walls" is barely mentioned!

Definitely not his best work. In fact, I would almost call it lazy. Poor ending, uninteresting plot, then tried to save it by tying it into a popular series. Read morePublished 2 months ago by John
"We need you to kill a man." This is the very first sentence of the book. The mystery guest making this assertion starts to explain, but before he can, he's shot dead. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Matthew

RAH was fully capable of telling engaging stories for many years. If he'd had more time, maybe he wouldn't have gone the way he did with so many of these 'Lazurus Long' era stories... Read morePublished 7 months ago by Amazon Customer
