Review of 'Revolt in 2100' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

This book actually consists of three stories. The Main story, and longest, Revolt 2100 was great. In 2100 the US is controlled by a religious dictator, there's an underground revolution, etc. That's the sci-fi plot, the real interesting stuff is Heinlein's social study on religious control, censorship, and the dangers of an unchecked government. Considering it was written in 1953 it is eerily relevant to current events.
Also in this collection - "Coventry" continues that story, years later, and a different plot. It's ok, but the charecters and storyline aren't quite as interesting.

The 3rd story - "Misfits" is more straight ahead sci-fi , space exploration, and a really smart misfit. Kind of standard, it passed time on the subway.
