30 Day Book Meme - Day 30
Day 30 – Your favorite book of all time

This probably isn't a surprise to anyone who's been following along: The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress by Robert Heinlein. My username is the remnant of my dream of working in a lunar base. TMIaHM is probably the seed of that obsession. What makes it my favorite: humans expanding off Earth to stay. A struggle for freedom from oppression. Contemplating what the start of true artificial intelligence would be like. Finding a political structure that will maximize people's freedom (I love Prof's speech brainstorming alternatives). Exploring love in different family structures. Friendship and loss, even for a non-human. Exploding spaceships. Striking sparks.

Yep, I need to read that again soon. Wish they'd put out a Kindle version.
