I'd value recommendations for great sci-fi novels with happy endings in The Library Posted May 9, 2007 If anybody else would like to share their favourite books, I would enjoy hearing them (I'm hoping to live for a long time... Don't be too disappointed if you DON'T like Heinlein. Some people actually don't, I being one of them. His fans tend to be men and his detractors tend to be women. Personally, I think he hadn't a clue what goes on inside the female brain, and that his women are all examples of what men WISH women were like. That said, "Moon" is one of his better books. Don't even consider "The Number of the Beast"....Heck, I didn't even like "Number of the Beast." Actually I think Heinlein pretty much "lost it" after the late 60s.Have to agree. Heinlein is one of a dozen or so authors I *really* got into and read just about everything he wrote. I couldn't get into NOTB or most of his later works.His 'juvenile sf' series are some great reads, btw."Moon" is a great work as well.
