Winner of the 1967 Hugo award, this novel marked Heinlein's partial return to his best form. He draws many historical parallels with the War of Independence, and clearly shows his own libertarian political views. In what is considered one of his most hair-raising, thought-provoking, and outrageous adventures, the master of modern Sci-Fi tells the strange story of an even stranger world--twenty-first century Luna, a harsh penal colony where a revolt is plotted between a bashful computer and a ragtag collection of maverick humans--a revolt that goes beautifully until the inevitable happens. But the problem with the inevitable is that it always happens.… (más)

There is so much I hated about this book. But it was quite well written and kind of entertaining in its awfulness. ( )

This book felt like reading the minutes of every planning meeting I've ever been to, but with nastier tactics behind the scenes. I was also annoyed by the seeming inconsistencies in Mannie's "bad" grammar, but that might be due to my English teacher brain being unable to switch off. I also feel really uncomfortable with Heinlein's portrayals of women; even when they're supposed to be smart and capable and powerful, they don't know that much and they have to stay home. At one point he even goes on and on about "Loonies" and women, as if the latter are not considered citizens of Luna. Also, the lack of queerness in his group marriages is glaring. Not even a coded reference or a vague allusion, unless it was so oblique that I missed it. Still, I enjoyed the meditations on computers and humanity, and of course I'm all for a free Luna. ( )

I had geared myself up to read a book by one of the masters, but I did not expect what I found. I did not expect to find an altered English for a future lunar colony. Nor did I expect to find polyamory, group marriages, and a culture without rape in a penal colony. I really, really, REALLY did not expect the main character of a novel published in 1966 to be a computer technician.

I related to Manuel immediately. It didn't take Mike much longer to have me rooting for him.

The story took its time to build up. The leisurely pace, instead of boring me, gave me the time to get to know the main characters. I had the time to come to care for them, and their cause. The tension built slowly, and then exploded into action and ballsy diplomatic shenanigans. I have to admit that I was surprised by who joined Manuel's group marriage. I had hoped she had interest in him, but had dismissed it early on. Well played, Mr. Heinlein.

There's a reason that this book is a classic. If you're into SciFi, my advice would be to read it. Take your time getting used to the language and the first person narrative. It'll be worth it.

I picked this one up at a used bookstore in Caseville, MI. It's old enough not to have an ISBN, but a SBN instead. ( )

My All Time Fav science fiction novel. Loved everything about it! Have read it several times and given many people copies. From Heinlein's best writing period, in my opinion ( )
  HealthSeeker | Mar 20, 2022 |
I have read and enjoyed several Heinlein books but this one was a difficult read. I did manage to finish it but I had to fight it the whole way. The language was just too disjointed and choppy and it kept setting off my OCD alarm. The story was decent but even though the language was supposed to tie in with the whole setting, I just couldn't get past it. ( )

None of these complaints are to say that Harsh Mistress is a straight-up bad book. As with any Heinlein book, it offers a lot of food for thought and fodder for argument.
