Maureen Johnson, the somewhat irregular mother of Lazarus Long, wakes up in bed with a man and a cat. The cat is Pixel, well-known to fans of the New York Times best seller The Cat Who Walks through Walls. The man is a stranger to her, and besides that, he is dead.
So begins Robert A. Heinlein’s To Sail Beyond the Sunset. Filled with the master’s most beloved characters, this compelling work broadens and enriches his epic vision of time and space, life and death, love and desire. It is also an autobiographical masterpiece—and a wondrous return to the alternate universes that all Heinlein fans have come to know and love.
“Thoughtprovoking…. Considerable wit and energy!” (Newsday)

Perhaps it rates in x's and not stars.

Oh loved the change of perspective to hear from Lazarus's mother. This was a great change from the Methuselah's series.
A talented reader who can change voice tones on a dime to meet new characters coming in to the story.
This book is extreme and rubs against social norms of present society. Its content may not be new for long time readers of Heinlein work, but new readers may be shocked by the content. This read is not for children or Harry Potter readers.
It was great to have this in audio version as I have commute time and little time for sitting and reading paper copies at present.
