Cool Robert A. Heinlein

Now a short break in The Dresden Files to read a 1964 novel by Robert A. Heinlein, Farnham's Freehold, an apocalyptic and mostly post-apocalyptic tale starting in the early 60's. It's actually a re-read for me as I've previously read pretty much eveything that Heinlein wrote. But I don't normally call anything I read pre-Kindle a re-read.

Assuming you were referring to Farnham's Freehold, I also first (and last, till now) read it in that era (actually more like 48 years ago)! I discussed it with a friend 15 years later, but didn't re-read it then. He disliked it and I, of course didn't agree. He claimed that the book was an excuse for the affair that led to his second divorce and third marraige. I disagreed.
