The capstone and crowning achievement of the Future History series, from the New York Times bestselling Grand Master of Science Fiction...
Time Enough for Love follows Lazarus Long through a vast and magnificent timescape of centuries and worlds. Heinlein's longest and most ambitious work, it is the story of a man so in love with Life that he refused to stop living it; and so in love with Time that he became his own ancestor.
I've fallen in love with Heinlein again.
I've loved Heinlein since high school too many years ago and he's still just as good. I would have read twice as much about dear OLD Lazarus.
However, the editing on the ebook was poorly done. I know some of those words couldn't be what Robert wrote (but I no longer have my paperback to compare to). Spell-checker is fine for some stuff but have a competent flesh & blood read it, too.

This was awful, a waste of time and money. So much was cut from the original book that the story made little sense, and the person recording it read so fast, there was no inflection to make it sound real.HelankaScifiMimi
A sweeping saga, but alas dated and cliché
It is almost a portrait of a post-war picket-fence fantasy world, translated in endless time and space (via immortality and space travel). The mercurial Lazarus would be more interesting if he learnt a thing or two in his 2000 years of survival, and all his descendents seem to have inherited his self-serving and limited vision of women.
Then again, Heinlein is a giant of sci-fi, and worth a read if anything to understand his own background.
