    "The Star Beast has aged better than virtually any other sci-fi novel I've ready. My father gave me the book as a kid, and I intend to give it to my children. As long as matters of human emotion are relevant, so will this book."

    "I'm not sure if this would be considered the best science fiction book for kids, but it is a pretty solid book. I'd recommend it to anyone that has kids in their life that enjoy science fiction. "

    "The Star Beast, written by Robert Heinlein is about a pet beast named Lummox. He's been part of a human family for generations and loved endlessly by his owner, John Stuart XI. All things are well until he eats a neighbor's car and start to grow again making him a threat to objects and possibly humanity but Stuart and his best friend Betty will fight tooth and nail for Lummox not to be captured by the Feds, who is searching for him to remove from his home he knew so long for good."

    "Setup could have been explained better, but finally everything is working. The cameras need a longer power supply cord and would prefer black cord also because white is easy for someone to see and disconnect. The company emailed back and was very helpful and sent another camera to replace the one that didn't work properly and of course that was the first one I tried to start and it made the setup hard to understand and follow.."

    "I admit I abandoned this book twice before continuing, it began so slowly. Then it picked up the pace and became interesting and fun. I can't say that I'm rooting for the hero, he has no real back story so he feels 2 dimensional. But it was entertaining and I ordered the sequel."

    "Science fiction books is a huge category to determine the best out of it but definitely The Star Beast is not even one of the best ones. Although the author is very successful in writing science fiction books, the Star Beast is not his top product."

    "To search for best Science fiction novels this recommendation would be a good result. The Star Beast has 4.5 stars with 115 reviews and meets my search criteria and is at a decent price point with several ordering options."
