This is such a fantastic story. I am so glad that you found it to be so as well. Interesting point about how female readers would view it. I saw the protagonist in a strong light, but irregardless of any open mindedness I am still looking at it from a male perspective! Ha! Reading it certainly made me want to check out more of Heinlein’s short stories and juvenile fiction.

Thanks Carl!

It really was a fantastic story – probably my favorite Heinlein one so far. And while I agree that the protagonist was a very strong female character, I would still like to hear what female readers thought of her.

Yeah, it is stuff like this that makes me want to read more Heinlein stories – any other suggestions?
