    Double Star PDF ↠ Mass Market Paperback double download, star free, Double Star PDFEPUBReview also posted at Fantasy Literature In Double Star a 1956 Robert Heinlein novella Lawrence Smith aka Lorenzo Smythe or Lorenzo the Great an out of work actor accepts a job to impersonate a man for a few days without perhaps asking as many uestions about the job as he should have He promptly finds himself whisked off to the planet Mars standing in for one of the most important political figures in the solar system who has been kidnapped Larry's first task fool the Martians during a vitally important Martian adoption ceremony But somehow one appearance as a double leads to another and anotherMy self imposed mission was to find a Robert Heinlein story where the enjoyment of the tale isn't swamped by the offensive content for which Heinlein is unfortunately well known Double Star I think does the job pretty well There are a couple of instances of eyebrow raising dialogue and the women mostly have secretarial type jobs but it's par for what you'd normally e

    Double Star PDF ↠ Mass Market Paperback double download, star free, Double Star PDFEPUBReally enjoyed this Heinlein's first but least recognized Hugo Award winner Like many of his better works this is a science fiction vehicle that he uses to discuss other issues here he spends time with politics maybe even adding some subtle and not too subtle ideas about what he thinks is right and wrong in politics Not consistent with other novels about Martians or his future fiction in other books but excellent characterization and a fun story Borrows heavily from the Prisoner of Zenda theme

    Double Star PDF ↠ Mass Market Paperback double download, star free, Double Star PDFEPUBI read this book growing up and I can’t tell you exactly why I remembered liking it but a friend was recently reading it and I decided to add it to my listThere is a lot of hit or miss on the Heinlein bookshelf and I can respect those who don’t find this one interesting First it really isn’t focused on the science fiction though we get a lot of what RAH imagines about humans spreading out in the solar system Second the lead character isn’t in Heinlein’s terms “a spaceman” He is a somewhat narcissistic actor who i

    Double Star PDF ↠ Mass Market Paperback double download, star free, Double Star PDFEPUBWashed up actor Lorenzo Smythe accepts the role of his lifetime to impersonate a politician who has been kidnapped right before both an important meeting meant to unite Humans and Martians Failure to show up could result in a war between planetsThis book was originally published in 1956 and it certainly felt dated to me Despite human existence now being on an interplanetary level this is very much an American story with a limited scope Lorenzo often doesn't refer to Humankind as being from Earth but simply as America Along with the anti Br

    Double Star PDF ↠ Mass Market Paperback double download, star free, Double Star PDFEPUBThis is one of Heinlein's early novels which you can tell by the brevity and the lack of wankery Also the fact that he just jumps straight into the story and never wastes much time on expositionThis is in fact one of Heinlein's greatest strengths and I think a major reason for his grandmaster status — he may be a bit out of fashion nowadays and he often lost the plot in his later works but he was first and foremost a storyteller A spinner of yarns a teller of tales and if readers freuently read too much into the author's id because of what his characters did that was their own lookout Double Star is typical of Heinlein SF We get a fully sketched out but barely described interplanetary society in which the United States still exists as a sovereign state in cooperation with an Empire that governs across the solar system Mars is its own planet and the alien Martians coexist with humanity with some on both sides wanti
