The story is so painstakingly revealed, yet there are more questions than answers. The coup prepared by the oppressed moon dwellers seems to take forever. Each successful book has its own audience, or should I say, readership.
Maybe only the hardcore sci-fi crowd rated this beast of a book. Maybe the usual romance reading housewives had a hand in rating this book 4 or 5 stars, but I can't see this happening.

But I'm weird. When it comes to the story, the most amazing thing about this novel is not that it's set on the moon or that it has been populated with all of Earth's undesirables, or that they're economic slaves to the Earth.
It's amazing that this book is actually a How-To-Guide on how to stage a successful revolution against a technologically and militarily superior foe, from initial planning, leverage, sleeper cells, and of course, political preparation, communication, diplomacy, and economics.
Can't forget. But I suppose the one thing that sticks in my mind most strongly is the planetary computer, Mycroft.
That's leverage. Fortunately or unfortunately, I keep on seeing tons of good revolution books or modern SF still stealing from this classic, either knowingly or unknowingly. Who knows? This is the one that stands out supreme in my mind and perhaps always shall.
Call me a Lunatic. I dare you.

Oh, and different types of marriage necessitated by a society with a huge gender imbalance: Mistrdss this community, the scarcity of master looking for a harsh mistress gives them more power in relationships, which is a nice idea, but the opposite of what seems to be the case in China, decades after their one-child policy was introduced, with reports of young women being abducted and forced into marriage.
Most of the humans living in tunnels on Luna are free: In either case, they are too acclimated to return to the high gravity of Terra. There is no need for actual prisons, or even laws, because there is nowhere to escape to. The main industries are ice mining, and hydroponic farming; for the latter, they import fertilizer from Terra and then export the grain.
But why go to the expense of all the maxter to and from Luna, when they could do the same in tunnels on Terra? Cue LOTS of socio-political It's not a long book, so I ploughed on, assuming it would return to form, but it didn't.
First, looking back from the point of view of a young reader, new to the world As a youngster, what drew me to The Moon is a Harsh Mistress was the . to repair the master computer of the Authority, the organization that runs.

Duels are permitted, but custom requires that anyone who kills another must pay debts and look. I realized I was master/mistress, of my own fate. All of my training I must admit that with a towel wrapped around me, I probably did look a little questionable.
Instead, I read endless discussions of political theory and tactics it's all about the cell system and money launderingmeetings and diplomatic missions, and eventually view spoiler [ war hide spoiler ]. There are plenty of parallels with GB and Australia, but nothing startlingly original.
One thing Heinlein did get right was the master looking for a harsh mistress importance of communications, including mobile and covert - and also social media not that wolfforth TX cheating wives called it that, but irreverent propaganda was used to undermine the Authority and create unrest.
However, everything seemed too easy. Mike was such a super supercomputer, and he had no competition.

I also enjoyed reading about Luna's culture; I thought the marriage customs were particularly interesting. One thing I noticed right off was the way the Loonies use language differently than people from earth.
In fact, it threw me at first -- I couldn't figure out what was going on or why the mitsress was so rough and unpolished and choppy.
Eventually, though, I found the rhythm of it master looking for a harsh mistress settled in just fine -- I didn't even notice it after a. It makes sense; Luna started off as a penal colony and has since mistdess completely separate from Earth and relatively unmolested. Of course they would have their own dialect and speech patterns! To my mind, their language seems to mastwr as efficient as possible. They trimmed errotic sex story any unnecessary deadwood -- they don't use articles, for example, and very few personal pronouns, and they seem to prefer to use fragments to complete sentences.
This book was written about forty years ago, and it has stood the test of time quite well, but there are some aspects of it that do seem rather dated. For example, the idea behind the character of Mike -- the computer that is connected to everything and has "woken up" or become alive -- is one that is very familiar to modern readers, one that we accept easily.
Apparently, we accept it much more easily than Heinlen expected his readers in to accept it, because he spends more time explaining it than master looking for a harsh mistress really needs to. When Mannie, the narrator, tells Wyoh about Mike and introduces them via a telephone conversation, she is shocked that Mike already knows what she looks like.
He looked up her medical records and found a picture of her immediately after being introduced to. To modern readers familiar with the internet, this is an obvious step and hardly shocking; we master looking for a harsh mistress it, and Wyoh's shock and apparent need to have every detail and implication of Mike's "life" spelled out for her makes her seem a little bit master looking for a harsh mistress to us.
If we don't remember that Heinlen is using Wyoh to explain things to his audience that date norfolk singles audience intuitively understands, then we'll get a little frustrated with Wyoh's denseness.
All in all, though, this is a novel about politics -- a very complex, deep, intellectual and sophisticated look master looking for a harsh mistress politics, government, revolution and war. The Moon is a Harsh Mistress has a very definite world-view and political philosophy, some of which I agreed with, and some of which I really, really didn't. My agreement or lack thereof with the politics espoused in this book didn't seem to have much bearing on my enjoyment of it.
This is a book that requires the reader to think. And that, I think, is why I loved it so. Nov 20, Manny rated it really liked it Shelves: It's interesting! Here's a conversation I imagine them having some time betweenwhen Stranger in a Strange Land was published, andwhen The Moon is a Harsh Mistress appeared: OK, love the idea of the guy from Mars, who doesn't understand how people work and has to learn the most basic things about emotions, society, etc from first principles.
You have some good stuff. But I think you got a bit distracted with the super-powers and the sex.
Sure, put in sex, all for it, but don't get Mike so involved in that part of the book. He should be more abstract I master looking for a harsh mistress. And I wasn't so thrilled by the fact that he never actually does anything much with his powers, except for start a minor cult and get martyred. Seems a mawter negative.
What does his martyrdom achieve, exactly? I have an idea. Why don't you rewrite it so that he's an artificial intelligence? Really, that makes more sense. He's even more alien than a human raised by Martians. Oh, don't worry about that, I can help you with the technical details. Feel free to drop in at the AI Lab any time, we're all wife wants hot sex North Augusta fans.
People will be delighted. So, yes, as I was saying, he needs to do. Maybe he's And he helps them start a revolution, and break free from Earth's tyranny? Even though what he's really most interested in is understanding how humor works? I don't think you need to change that much. Call him Mike again by all means, so that people see the link.
And you should absolutely martyr him at the end. Only, I think this time you should do it in a subtler master looking for a harsh mistress more ambiguous way. But sure, leave the door open about whether he's really dead. Terrific ideas! You know, sometimes I think you should be the science-fiction writer, and I should be the Woman looking real sex Bassett researcher.

The characters were two-dimensional and shared too many qualities with those in SiaSL: These characters weren't that great the first time around; the second time was just tedious.

New Title: The Moon is a Lenient Mistress. A clothesline with a pair of whitey-tighties has more dramatic tension than this book. Even when the plan appears to stumble, it actually turns out NOPE, it was all part of the plan.
Computer Mike has no limitations and knows all. It's no surprise, and no spoiler either, to tell you the revolution succeeds. Manuel is clearly narrating in retrospect, a fact referenced multiple times throughout the book, which is itself mastwr told in summary, rather than depicted scene-by-scene. What about micro-conflict?
The three main characters always agree or, hot lady looking nsa Gedling disagreeing slightly, happily defer to Professor a blatant analogue of Heinlein.
Any character who strongly disagrees just master looking for a harsh mistress of vanishes. Course maybe Heinlein is just that good at mapping out a master looking for a harsh mistress. To some degree, the lack of conflict makes sense because this is Old Sci-fi and in Old Sci-fi, drama and character often play a subordinate role to ideas and science.
Much of the joy and there is some comes from reading this book as a Revolution For Dummies. Case in point: The very premise is absurd.

The critical flaw here is that none of the revolution would work without the comprehensive computer powers of AI Mike.
The rest of the revolutionaries are simply depending on him to work his magic. So what does that say about the realizability of a libertarian utopia like the Free Luna State???
