About the Author
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 he 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.

Eunice = you nice!
Johann Sebastian Bach ドイツ語風、つまりヨハン・セバスチャン。ひょっとして、この話はフーガの技法を使って、何度も元にもどるなんてオチじゃないんでしょうね？？
He writes of a time in the future when all the computers are connected and talk to each other--an idea that would have been laughable by all but the most brilliant people in 1970. But then he explores the very idea of sexuality. A time when homosexuality would be considered normal. A time when illegitimacy is a dead word, and gender is nothing more than a social construct. And the concept of trans-sexuality is at the heart of the entire tome. But while the entire story unfolds, there is a suggestion of a dsytopian society looming outside. Does any of this sound familiar. He doesn't appear to take position on any of these matters, he just presents it from the view of those who live it.
If you're looking for deep sci-fi, it's probably not your book, but if your a fan of Heinlein and his political slant, you'll enjoy this book.
worth reading for the futurology, (pretty accurate) and cynical social comment. And for those magical moments at the end. The old master could never be dull.
A product of his time, but also reveals what Heinlein believed women were thinking about (sex). If you're looking for a better Heinlein novel, go with Stranger in a Strange Land or Starship Troopers.
He was pilloried by many critics for the controversial content in this book. But, he also opened up the whole field of Sci-Phi for other authors to explore the full gamut of sexuality and the family.
What does having a brain transplant mean for the recipient of a new body and the donor. How does a male react to being a beautiful 20+ female? What are the legal consequences for the first recipient of a new body? These and other important questions are asked in this book. Between 'Stranger In A Strange Land', 'I Will Fear no Evil', and 'Time Enough For Love', Heinlein thoroughly severed his ties to his Mid-West Bible Belt upbringing. Enjoy this masterpiece from the Grandfather of Sci-Phi.
