Review of 'Double Star' on 'Goodreads'
Fair warning: I'm a huge Heinlein fan, so my reviews of his work aren't exactly impartial. Having said that this is one of my favorite novels of his. It is also one of his more unHeinlein-like stories. His main characters are often rugged individuals with strong dominant personalities but in this story the protagonist needs to subsume himself into another identity in order to succeed. I graduated from UC Berkeley with Dramatic Arts degree. Given the story line is basically about an actor, I found Heinlein's discussions about performance and acting interesting even when I didn't exactly agree with him. This novel was one of his best.
