Time Enough for Love is the capstone and crowning achievement of Heinlein’s famous Future History series. 

Lazarus Long is so in love with life that he simply refuses to die. Born in the early 1900s, he lives through multiple centuries, his love for time ultimately causing him to become his own ancestor. Time Enough for Love is his lovingly detailed account of his journey through a vast and magnificent timescape of centuries and worlds. Using the voice of Lazarus, Heinlein expounds his own philosophies, including his radical ideas on sexual freedom. His use of slang, technical jargon, sharp wit, and clever understatement lend this story a texture and authority that seems the very tone of things to come.

    " Good story but the content made it hard to read at times.

    " My previous favorite SF book (before I read Ender's Game), and the single novel that has had the most profound impact on me. For some reason old Lazarus Long really spoke to me as a teenager. I have read this book a couple of times since, and love coming back to it each time. "

    " THIS is how one begins an intelligent conversation. Heinlein pushes a lot of buttons... delightfully, deliciously. The book itself reads clumsily at times, but who cares: it's the ideas, the morality, the epic vision of what we can be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Stel | 3/23/2011

    " In his later years Robert Heinlein's work was the sex obsessed musings of an old perv. Good stuff. "
