Yeah Yeah, I know this seems really internet-teeny bopper, but what Heinlein book should you be in?

I liked 'Stranger in a Strange Land'. I loved 'The Moon is a Harsh Mistress'. I lost interest when Heinlien became focused on sex with one's family in 'Time Enough For Love'.

The Moon is a Harsh Mistress was great, as well as Starship Troopers... I'd also give a look at his short stories, like Waldo.

It says I belong in the Cat Who Walks Through Walls. I haven't picked up a Heinlein book in a while. My all time favorite though is Methusla's Children.

And remember, An elephant is a mouse built to goverment specifications.

It said Starship Trooper, but I feel more like it should have been:
Farnham's Freehold, since I don't know if I'm coming or going half the time.
For those that haven't read it, It's a pretty good TEOTWAWKI book with some strange twist.

"Friday" is a pretty good read too, but all of the others ones mentioned are awesome.

Starship Troopers played a significant role in my decision to enlist. Time Enough For Love helped me define my working ethics. Tunnel in the Sky got me into backpacking and survival.

Mr. Heinlein has had a huge impact on my life.

I could see my friends and I at the convention in the end of 'Number of the Beast' very easily.

The Door into Summer is a little lesser-known, but it is a GREAT story. It's short , too, zoom by the public library and see if they have it.

Mine was startship troopers.

Pretty appropriate.

You belong in Time Enough For Love. You are older than you look. Your wit and wisdom are prized by others. People throw themselves on you, begging to be with you.

You belong in Job- A Comedy of Justice. Your convictions are indomitable, even when they don't fit what's happening around you. You would travel to hell and back for true love.

I enjoyed Tunnel in the Sky and Starship Troopers

that's one of my favorite books!

You belong in Starship Troopers. Your idea of a good time is bouncing across an alien battlefield blasting the foes of humanity into extinction.

Haven't read any Heinlein before. Gonna have to pick some up now...

I liked Glory Road and Red Planet. I read all of his books I could find back when I was in High School, a long time ago in a place not too far away...........

"Farnham's Freehold" for me, please...


You belong in Farnham's Freehold. You are a survivor, ready for anything. You can keep a cool head, even in a world where hatred and bigotry are commonplace.

No surprise, Starship Troopers.

"To the everlasting glory of the Infantry, shines the name of Rodger Young...."


The Father of a friend served in Rodger Youngs untit in the Pacific. He and I drank beers one night, sang that song, and he told me about his part in the war. He was a hell of a man.

I second that. Any novel where the gorgeous wimmin are naked half the time gets my vote.
