Review: The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Richard A. Heinlein

The ideas put forth in this book regarding revolution, autonomy, and the law are somewhat thought provoking. It throws the trends we currently see in our global society into a reality within the context of a future off-world that is attempting to cope with the consequences of today’s problems.

My reading experience was a bit mediocre and a bit boring. The writing style is stilted and in some places hard to read. I did not feel emotionally invested in any of the characters. The characters lacked any dimension or likability. Having a supercomputer figure out everything for the characters also made the ending both unsatisfying and gave the characters no ability to figure out the revolution for themselves.
