I was actually really excited when I found this book in the library’s ‘for sale’ rack. I’d got it out of the library when I was in high school but a friend of mine ended up reading it instead of me and I’ve always meant to go back and rectify that situation. And here was my chance! But, well, you’ll see. Honestly, I was willing to give it a chance until one of the characters said (more or less) “Well, nine times out of ten, when a girl gets raped, she was asking for it.” And then I threw it across the room.
Hopefully no science fiction aficionados will hate me for this.
25¢ Review #4 – Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein
Reads like the shallow sci-fi sexual fantasy of some cleverer-than-thou “alternative” guru who, in his pimply youth, was misunderstood by all us lesser mortals.
