4 Score: 4 (From 126 Ratings)


The brilliantly shocking story of the ultimate transplant from New York Times bestselling author Robert A. Heinlein.

As startling and provocative as his famous Stranger in a Strange Land, here is Heinlein's awesome masterpiece about a man supremely talented, immensely old and obscenely wealthy who discovers that money can buy everything. Even a new life in the body of a beautiful young woman.

Once again, master storyteller Robert A. Heinlein delievers a wild and intriguing classic of science fiction.


  • Loved this book

    Read this twice and loved it. Second only to Stranger In A Strange Land among the best of Heinlein. Conceptually unique and way ahead of its time.
  • One of His *Worst*

    By dougom
    Possibly the worst Heinlein novel, and certainly not worthy of being listed by iTunes as "an essential." Overwrought, rambling, silly, absurd, poorly-edited, repetitious; truly an awful, awful book. If you can only read one Heinlein book, choose "Stranger in a Strange Land", "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress", or one of his excellent young adult books such as "Have Spacesuit, Will Travel" or "Citizen of the Galaxy". Look: I'm a huge Heinlein fan. I enjoy even his bad books, and have reread almost all of them, even such iffy offerings as "The Number of the Beast" and "The Day After Tomorrow". But this? #Epicfail. Do not buy. Seriously.
  • One of his best!

    I've read and re-read this story, as I've done all of Heinlein's works, and I would rate this one of his top five. The other four being 'Glory Road', 'Time Enough For Love', 'The Number Of The Beast' and 'The Door Into Summer'. I would include 'Starship Troopers' in that list, but the abomination of the movie by the same name soured me on that particular yarn.
