I am currently trying to get through Robert Heinlein’s The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, but I am having a hard time considering how sexist it is and the fact that he really, REALLY wants me to be a libertarian. And I am just not feeling it. I don’t mind books that are political in nature (see my review of Iron Council below) as long as the views aren’t set up in a “So, main character, tell me exactly what your political views are for three pages” manner.

I had to throw the book away after reading a line praising the main character’s “mature male drive.” He’s a good candidate for a leader because he is what, full of magic semen? Ughhhhhhhhghhghg.
