The Rolling Stones: aka Space Family Stone


One of the best of the Heinlein juveniles. The plot to the novel is fairly straight forward, but where it really excels is in the characterization. Wonderful, humorous family interactions set this novel above most of Heinlein's early works. The first third of the novel does a fantastic job of setting up the characters and has some of Heinlein's best dialogue. Highly recommended. On par with Have Spacesuit, Will Travel and Time for the Stars.
