Heinlein is a science fiction Grand Master, and this book is considered something of breakthrough to posthumous fame. He/it are not favorites of mine, but a librarian wondered whether I had a copy to lend to the library. (It's a poor library. The arts are in trouble.) So I said I'd check, bought this, and told her she could shelve it if she accepted into the system a couple of my favorites. Outcome still to be resolved, but she was impressed with my polite maneuvering. Must add: I am SO GLAD that Overstock is stocking books and films.
Required reading for those who've read the two previous MaddAddam novels, but while some essential questions are finally answered, the story concludes abruptly. I got the feeling while reading that Margaret Atwood was tired of the storyline and its characters and just wanted to wrap up everything quickly. Oryx & Crake and The Year of the Flood were much better.
This is a great book to read after reading Ender's Game. Its very different from Ender's Game but still a great read. Ender is an adult in this story but his work to restore the Buggers has just begun. He goes to a planet where a new alien race has been found. The new race is being studied although they still understand very little about them. I did find the family names to be confusing at times. There are two main families involved in the story and I mixed up the kids all the time but I don't think it really took much away from the story.
