Book Description
Robert A. Heinlein was the most influential science fiction writer of his era, an influence so large that, as Samuel R. Delany notes, "modern critics attempting to wrestle with that influence find themselves dealing with an object rather like the sky or an ocean." He won the Hugo Award for best novel four times, a record that still stands. The Moon is a Harsh Mistress was the last of these Hugo-winning novels, and it is widely considered his finest work.

It is a tale of revolution, of the rebellion of the former Lunar penal colony against the Lunar Authority that controls it from Earth. It is the tale of the disparate people--a computer technician, a vigorous young female agitator, and an elderly academic--who become the rebel movement's leaders. And it is the story of Mike, the supercomputer whose sentience is known only to this inner circle, and who for reasons of his own is committed to the revolution's ultimate success.

The Moon is a Harsh Mistress is one of the high points of modern science fiction, a novel bursting with politics, humanity, passion, innovative technical speculation, and a firm belief in the pursuit of human freedom.

    Ricetta per una rivoluzione a cavallo tra il classico e il futuribile. Finale dolceamaro che mi ha ricordato Wall-e. Titolo meraviglioso. Piccole cose che valgon bene 4 stelle.

    Come ti creo la rivoluzione

    Un libro piacevole. Svolgimento interessante, con buon ritmo e buone idee. Peccato per il finale, un po' sottotono rispeto al resto del libro.

    拜讀海萊茵科幻小說經典,不同於奇幻小說以幻想為主軸,這本小說其實很重實際理論, 如三人結黨,如何搞革命,如何月球與地球雙方交換貨物,如何從月球對地球發動戰爭,小說就是寫人性,所以革命中會遇到的麻煩,小說中也提到了,如習於流於空談的政客,後期也出現戰時要求人道優於國家的儒生。
