Amazon continues to offer classic Sci-Fi titles on Kindle at slick prices. This time they have Double Star by Robert Heinlein on sale for $2.99 - sold by Amazon so No Rush Shipping credits WILL apply Applause


This was his first Hugo award winning novel and great for both old and new readers alike

Many of Heinlein's fans consider the novels he wrote in the fifties amongst the author's strongest work; when he was at the peak of his talents. Double Star is considered by many to be the finest of his titles. Brian Aldiss called it his "most enjoyable novel."

Whether it is the simplicity of a lively tale, the complexity of the situation, or the depth of characterization, the book has developed a loyal following. It also won Heinlein his first Hugo.

The story revolves around Lawrence Smith—also known as "Lorenzo the Great"—a down-and-out actor wasting the remainder of his life in bars.

When he encounters a space-pilot who offers him a drink, before he knows what is going on, he is on Mars involved in a deep conspiracy with global consequences. He is given a mission where failure would not only mean his own death, it would almost certainly mean an all-out planetary war.

"Heinlein's novels of the 1940s and 50s shaped every single science fiction writer of my generation and everyone currently writing science fiction. Or making science fiction movies ... and Double Star is an excellent example of all the reasons why."—Connie Willis

This is a truly classic sci-fi novel, one of Robert Heinlein's greatest early novels, and one of my favorites. TU!

This is a good read, but your public library probably has a few copies and there is always the ebook checkout through your library as well. Let me check mine now ... we use Overdrive ... so they don't have this book, but they do have the audiobook. They have a few other Heinlein books, including Stranger In A Strange Land - Hugo winner.

Turns out I have a paperback version on the shelf. I'm a huge Heinlein fan.

Check your library first.

Wow. I'm watching Everybody Loves Raymond and a character just mentioned this book. Then I look down and see this deal. Is that a sign or something?
