Publisher's Summary

Time Enough for Love is the capstone and crowning achievement of Heinlein's famous Future History series.
Lazarus Long is so in love with life that he simply refuses to die. Born in the early 1900s, he lives through multiple centuries, his love for time ultimately causing him to become his own ancestor. Time Enough for Loveis his lovingly detailed account of his journey through a vast and magnificent timescape of centuries and worlds. Using the voice of Lazarus, Heinlein expounds his own philosophies, including his radical ideas on sexual freedom. His use of slang, technical jargon, sharp wit, and clever understatement lend this story a texture and authority that seems the very tone of things to come.

Classic Heinlein!

I read this story as a young woman during my first Science Fiction phase. Robert Heinlein's books are readable always, with a strong plot line. This particular book tells the story of a near-immortal family and its members as they march through a history that can only be created by Heinlein.

Loved it the umpteenth time around.

Wonderful yarn

Terrific story about a 4,000 year old man. Fascinating, bawdy, funny, the tale focuses on Lazarus Long, a crusty guy who, due to genetic luck, has lived a long long life. He's had countless wives, children, and lovers. He's fought wars, been an intergalactic businessman, and a time traveler. His morals are modern 61st century- quite more liberal than 20th century. He is surrounded by beautiful women, a few handsome men, and universally strong libidos.

I read the book about forty years ago. I appreciate the tale more now than I did before my decades of life experiences.

Tom Weiner is a sensational narrator. Kudos to him to bringing all the characters- male and female- to life.
