Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Robert A. Heinlein has written some of the bestselling science fiction nocels of all time, inclusing the beloved classic Stranger in a Strange Land. Now, in The Cat Who Walks Through Walls, he creates his most compelling character to ever: Dr. Richard Ames, ex-miltary man, sometime writer, and unfortunate victim of mistaken identity. When a stranger attempting to deliver a cryptic message is shot dead at his dinner table, Ames is thrown headfirst into danger, intrigue, and other dimensions where Lazarus Long still thrives, where Jubal Harshaw lives surrounded by beautiful women, and where a daring plot to rescue the sentient computer called Mike can change the direction of all human history.

Review:

"He is, if possible, a greater genus than before...this time by giving us a thinking man's Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." San Francisco Chronicle

Review:

"Entertaining...plenty of fast action...vivid and believable." Chicago Sun

Review:

"The action...is largely beside the point in a novel that is predominantly a dialogue between the protagonists. Their foredoomed attempt to become the Nick and Nora Charles of space (with a bonsai standing in for Asta) is sabotaged less by Heinlein's endless elbow-in-the-ribs wisecracks." Publishers Weekly
