Time Event
30 Day Book Meme - Day 21
Day 21 – Favorite book from your childhood

I don't remember when I first read it, but it goes way back: Citizen of the Galaxy by Robert Heinlein. Wonderful story, wonderful science fiction. It examines what's constant against what will change. Human nature is fixed, no matter what cultures it forms into (and we see four in this book). Evil people will do evil things when they can get away with it. Good people must keep fighting the evil ones. People want you to conform to society's rules, even when nobody's bothered mentioning what the rule is. All among newly settled worlds, alien races, spaceships, and other bits of the future.

A graphic novel version of the book is in work. I got to see the artist and some of his work in progress at Dallas Comic Con. I've ordered a copy, I hope the kids will like it as much as me.
