Publisher Description

Robert A. Heinlein has written some of the bestselling science fiction novels of all time, including the beloved classic Stranger in a Strange Land. Now, in The Cat Who Walks through Walls, he creates his most compelling character ever: Dr. Richard Ames, ex-military man, sometime writer, and unfortunate victim of mistaken identity.

When a stranger attempting to deliver a cryptic message is shot dead at his dinner table, Ames is thrown headfirst into danger, intrigue, and other dimensions where Lazarus Long still thrives, where Jubal Harshaw lives surrounded by beautiful women, and where a daring plot to rescue the sentient computer called Mike can change the direction of all human history.

Quotes

  • “Dialogue as witty as Oscar Wilde’s, action as rollicking as Edgar Rice Burroughs’, and satire as spicy as Jonathan Swift’s.”

    - New York Times
  • “Entertaining…plenty of fast action…vivid and believable.”

    - Chicago Sun
  • “[Heinlein] is, if possible, a greater genius than ever before…this time by giving us a thinking man’s Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.”

    - San Francisco Chronicle
  • “Irresistible…The Cat Who Walked through Walls has a force that cannot be denied.”

    - Locus
  • “While he probably can’t walk through walls, narrator Tom Weiner’s extraordinary ability is to take the dozens of distinct characters in Heinlein’s philosophical space adventure and give each a unique and instantly recognizable style. Weiner’s performance is particularly strong with the two main characters…Spoken by Weiner, their banter becomes clever enough to challenge even Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert to a literary duel.”

    " Not one of my favorite Heinlein books, but still interesting. I was really into this one until the major plot twist with about 100 pages to go. Heinlein always creates characters that I find intriguing and likable, but the ending just didn't do anything for me. "

    " Oh God! Fun story, I guess, but the most insipid damn characters ever. As much as Heinlein seems to thing about women, he certainly can't write them. On the good side, there are some interesting ideas in the book, but they are most often developed in long, preachy monologues. Meh. "

    " So powerful. Like the rest of his books, simply... mindblowing. (I use that word a lot.) "

    " Ok. Fun play on contemporary stuff and literary characters. Male-female relations typical of Heinlein.Theme of time travel and changing past events to make future better. "
