I Believe My God Is Laughing at Me

“One man’s theology is another man’s belly laugh.”

Robert A. Heinlein, Time Enough for Love

My favourite book by Heinlein is “The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress”. “Time Enough for Love” is from the same period and has now been added to my to-be-read pile.

    1. A library should definitely have it. It’s a classic science fiction novel, often quoted and referenced in scifi literature. Heinlein was in his way a visionary but could be longwinded. His depiction of women would also not fly today. I’ve read The Moon is a Harsh Mistress (genius title!) when I was very young, in my teens. I read it in a German translation then. Since I listen more than I read these days I looked for an audio version. The one available sounds awful! Heinlein devoleped a kind of slang for Luna (a penal colony in the future) which one gets used to reading after a few pages. But listening to it is torture. I also don’t like the voice of the reader.
