Hugo Winner Book Review: Double Star by Robert H. Heinlein
Winner of the 1956 Hugo award for best novel, this is classic Heinlein in his prime, during a period when he won six Hugo awards over a period of 15 years.
I'm was astonished to find that I had never read this one before. I finished it over a period of a couple of days, reminding me that good fiction can be a joy to read.
It is not a deep novel or one that makes you think, but it has a gripping plot, fine characterisation, and all the hallmarks of his best works including some references to things that would appear in later novels.
