What the community says about Stranger in a Strange Land

    "After reading this novel I understand why it is considered one of the best classic science fiction novels of the 1960's. It touches on the human spirit and definitely gives one an alternate view of life in general, especially religion, cults and sex. I feel this is more of an adult book than a children's book due to the mature story lines. "

    "Science fiction novels are some of the more interesting ones. Stranger in a strange land is good at keeping the reader's interest."

    "Stranger in a Strange Land was written back in 1961 but has acquired a cult following and is presumably the best science fiction book of the 20th Century. It has some religious aspects but with a sci-fi flair to it. I have read the book twice now, once as a young adult, and now as an older adult. I enjoyed the writing style and the moral lessons taught in this book."

    "What a cool book! I couldn't put it down because it's just too engrossing. The book was written a few decades ago so it's kind of dated, but it doesn't take away from the book. I liked the character development and found the plot intriguing! I recommend others read this as long as they're not sensitive or easily offended."

    "Stranger in a Strange Land tells a powerful story of a human male raised by Martians. Main character, Valentine Smith settles into Earth and tries to self teach himself how to conduct as a average human male. However, his abilities surpasses human's capability and because of his extraordinary gifts, he teaches fellow humans of superhuman skills, which is never done before."

    "I wouldn't really consider this a LGBT book very strongly. It is more accepting of openness and the story is good. It could be considered LGBT friendly in that it isn't homophobic."

    "This is my favorite Heinlein book and it's just awesome. Very cool imaginative story. Lots of themes in the book that apply even today, if not more so today, to our society. Very philosophical and thoughtful. A must read."

    "I really enjoyed going through this book as it is such a different type of plot and concept. It is about a boy who is raised by Martians and then arrives to Earth leaving his mark. I really liked the writing and the characters and was very enthralled by the scene. "

    "Stranger in a Strange Land is one of the best novels out there. It has even won a Hugo Award for it's greatness."

    "I'm not totally sure if NPR has definitely recommended this book specifically, though it does look as if they have had at least some kind of feature or discussion regarding it. I would personally recommend every book by this author, who I think is exceptional in a number of ways, though I have to mention that perhaps this is not the best edition of this book. I think only a huge fan would really be that concerned about that kind of thing though. I personally recommend this author quite a bit, and this specific book as well, though perhaps slightly less strongly. "

    "This is a re-read for me. I am a big science fiction fan, but old ones, mostly. No fantasy. Just not my thing. Read this first at 19. It reads differently now that I am nearly 64 ( will you still need me, will you still feed me...) This is a classic. No sci-fi fan can claim to be well-read without this book under her belt. It’s pretty good, and stands the test of time. I recommend it. Not the BEST sci-fi novel, but pretty damn good. "

    "I read this 25 years ago while I was in High School. This is and always has been one of my favorite works of Scifi in many years. I first read this over 20 years ago and at least twice since then. When it became available on Kindle I knew I had to have it in that venue. If you hav need read it DO SO! You will never forget the story."
