Amazon.de

Tom Clancy has said of Robert A. Heinlein, "We proceed down the path marked by his ideas. He shows us where the future is." Nowhere is this more true than in Heinlein's gripping tale of revolution on the moon in 2076, where "Loonies" are kept poor and oppressed by an Earth-based Authority that turns huge profits at their expense. A small band of dissidents, including a one-armed computer jock, a radical young woman, a past-his-prime academic and a nearly omnipotent computer named Mike, ignite the fires of revolution despite the near certainty of failure and death. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

5 von 5 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von mathilde de gardin am 10. Juni 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
I'm not a Heinlein fan. Whenever I start with a book of his, I brace myself for yet another alterego surrounded by beautiful educated females who adore him for unknown reasons, and the also inevitable stronger helper/superhuman who accompanies and teaches the protagonist.
This time there was a "line marriage", again giving the protagonist any number of women he would want, and thus the opportunity to be lofty about it. But I admit readily: the line marriage is a real good idea. I hope it will be allowed on earth real soon. And yes the superbrain was there in the story too. This time in the form of a sentient supercomputer that was interesting to meet, and gave the opportunity to explore Heinleins concepts of AI.
The most important reason I liked this book is because it matched an intelligent plot to fast paced action and considerable insights in the making of revolutions and the behavior of governments if they are confronted with one. If you're planning a revolution, do read this book as a starter. But if you're not: it's still a good read that as an extra resets your thoughts about the way we have structured our society now.

I know a lot of people fault this book for it's choppy English, but by omitting the articles and occasional prepositions, Heinlein points up the fact that those living on Luna have become a different culture, complete with its own language and idioms. And, to be fair, one of the novel's most important characters, Pfr. de la Paz, speaks flawless English. But nitpicking over the occasionally missing "a," "an," and "the" makes no sense when discussing this novel. Consider: Heinlein portrays a lunar colony so well thought out, one wonders why it hasn't been built already. And the plot's construtcion is airtight: follow the course of the revolution detailed in this book and by the end, you'll share in the characters' patriotism for their fledgling state. Nowhere else do you get such a concise picture of Heinlein's "You get what you pay for" philosophy. Definitely my favorite work of Heinlein's and one that stands up to repeated rereading. TANSTAAFL!

Having become curious by hearing its title being mentioned in some anarchist newsgroups, I decided to give it a try rather out of political curiosity, but with the background of a lover of good sci-fi literature. What can I say, both characteristics of myself were completely satisfied. The story is a kind of futuristic version of America's struggle for independance, this time America being the most ardent behind greater colonial oppressor Mother Earth; and Luna being an exploited colony and dump for convicts, ex-convicts and a growing community of ordinary inhabitants. Written in 1966, the novel still bears enough delicate political resemblance to what is happening nowadays that it could as well be quite fresh (and I could have said the same some 20 years ago). I am not familiar with the controversy about his other book ("Starship Troopers") nor interested enough to engage myself in it (quote about the film made in 1997:"...as to make fans of the novel cry in their popcorn.").
This book is beyond mere agitprop as well as beyond mere escapist sci-fi, quite humourous, and highly recommended. The characters are of an intersting mix; the concept of a computer who manages to evolve into a mentally anthropoid being you really begin to like is maybe even far more convincing nowadays, as well as the other main character, who in different situations always has to decide accordingly among a set of different artificial cyborg-arms which substitute the one he lost. And who is not the only typical male-hero character as well, while there are a lot of non-stereotype female characters to identify with for any female reader who gets bored with all those hard-boiled heros of so many sci-fi stories one gets to read.
Speaking as a non-native speaker, even 'luna-speak' becomes comprehensible and funny quite fast. Speaking as a lover of a good story-line and of a political message, 5 points. Writing as a lover of good entertainment on a high level, 5 points as well.

I came into my reading of Robert Heinlein's novel, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, with rather high expectations. Heinlein's esteemed reputation in the science fiction field is by itself justification to garner such exceedingly high expectations. Aside from this though, I've heard from many sources that this is Heinlein's masterpiece, better even than his world-famous (although I think somewhat overrated) Stranger in a Strange Land. In fact it was even voted to be the greatest of all sf books to ever win the hugo award, beating out Frank Herbert's Dune, the aforementioned Stranger, Ursula K. Le Guin's The Left Hand of Darkness, and Walter Miller's A Canticle for Leibowitz, respectively. Hmm. Seems to me that Heinlein has beat out some pretty stiff competition
After reading the novel, however, I think it fails to live up to such an honor, and is, I believe, the inferior of the works of the other author's mentioned. Not that it is a bad book, really. Heinlein has done a masterful job of showing such us how a revolution as he describes might actually take place, and on this level I think the book is thoroughly believable and works very well. His technical descriptions of life on the moon and the AI known as Mike show that Heinlein knows his stuff as far as science and, to a certain extent, sociology are concerned. All this leads to a book that is both enjoyable and thought provoking. Why, then, my disappointment? Well, if you look at those other books which Heinlein's book beat out in the ballot (disregarding Stranger), they are books that are filled with humanity. They have something to say about people, both as individuals and societies. They are, indeed, what we might call literature, or at least attempts at literature: what we might call serious fiction.
