    Astrogators in space One of Heinlein s earlier juvenile novels, this is one where RAH describes in great detail the machinations of the astrogators, quite a bit dated now with computers and it is amusing to imagine as he did a trio of math geniuses sitting in chairs with slide rules charting out a space ship s course, but that was part of his charm Some thin ch

    I like this dated novel A human civilization that was pictured or imagined before our present level of computer and electronic technology was even imagined A young man inherits somewhat informally a set of astrogator s texts and then sets out to get sponsored to get into the Astrogator s guild , the only way to become an astrogator, someone who plots the course of st

    Another typical great Heinlein YA novel about a farm boy who makes good The main characters in this book aren t angels They break the law bad ones mostly for reasons they think are sufficient I always thought so reap the consequences afterward, but still come out ahead Max is a hillbilly has an impossible situation at home He runs away, gets fake ID with the help of a roug

    An SF Juvenile originally published 60 years ago, 1953, it shows its age in a few places, but was still a wonderful yarn with one of my favorite characters in it, Sam Hardly the perfect hero or role model, he was a lot of fun showed the main character, Max, the ropes.The age of the story was most apparent in the technology Max has to study a computer by opening a panel tracing c

    I read a lot of Heinlein s juveniles when I was younger, but I missed this one and it was on sale from Audible, so it was nice to enjoy one of his earlier works, before he started getting old and wanky Everything from Friday on was pretty much Heinlein getting his freak on, but his earlier novels are still sci fi classics for good reason Starman Jones is your basic boys adventure stor

    Heinlein s anachronistic elements are often recognized when dealing with technical issues Other aspects are less obvious I ve lived in the Ozarks area the boundaries between mountain ranges are necessarily nebulous I was once lost in a state park I made my way out by following excessively bright lights to a prison That was some years ago, but things have gotten worse everywhere There are no

    While I m tooling around the world and history of writers I tripped upon Robert Heinlein I decided I had to read at least one, so I picked Starman Jones I have to say during the first two chapters I almost stopped reading because I felt like I was back in high school and it just wasn t sitting well with me Then we finally got to space I got it, I really enjoyed it The main character, a few extra

    This Heinlein guy was pretty good at telling a story.Max Jones is a young farmer, working hard to support his unlovable stepmother after his father s death, but he dreams of the life his Uncle Chet lived, as a member of the Astrogators Guild Chet had promised him that he d nominate him for membership, but died while Max was still too young to join, and then Max s father, before he died also, made him p

    I enjoyed reading this several times on my own, but really enjoyed reading it in small bits with the kids in 2013 It is the second Heinlein novel I went through with them, after The Star Beast and they loved them both Come to think of it, it has been over the time that we ve been reading this that Lily first declared her intention to become an astronaut when she grows up with the proviso that it might be too
