あらすじ・解説

Time Enough for Love is the capstone and crowning achievement of Heinlein's famous Future History series.

Lazarus Long is so in love with life that he simply refuses to die. Born in the early 1900s, he lives through multiple centuries, his love for time ultimately causing him to become his own ancestor. Time Enough for Loveis his lovingly detailed account of his journey through a vast and magnificent timescape of centuries and worlds. Using the voice of Lazarus, Heinlein expounds his own philosophies, including his radical ideas on sexual freedom. His use of slang, technical jargon, sharp wit, and clever understatement lend this story a texture and authority that seems the very tone of things to come.

Age changes perspective

When I was a 17-year-old I absolutely loved the story. I loved the references to sex. I loved the references to alternative lifestyles. I loved everything about it. OK so I was a horny 17-year-old. I recently reread the book using Audible and some of the story absolutely disturbed me. Incest and its consequences is something I didn't think of it all except having sex when I was 17. Now I understand that it can and does have lasting emotional impacts.

This story would not in my opinion begin to pass the political correctness tests of today and I am pretty sure it did not pass the PC tests when it was written. Art? Is it ever PC?

That being said, the story does a good job of exploring some of the "what if" questions of longevity and some of its implications.

Wonderful yarn

Terrific story about a 4,000 year old man. Fascinating, bawdy, funny, the tale focuses on Lazarus Long, a crusty guy who, due to genetic luck, has lived a long long life. He's had countless wives, children, and lovers. He's fought wars, been an intergalactic businessman, and a time traveler. His morals are modern 61st century- quite more liberal than 20th century. He is surrounded by beautiful women, a few handsome men, and universally strong libidos.

I read the book about forty years ago. I appreciate the tale more now than I did before my decades of life experiences.

Tom Weiner is a sensational narrator. Kudos to him to bringing all the characters- male and female- to life.

you'll never read any book better than this.

I am seriously in love with this book, in fact I don't think RAH has ever written anything I didn't like reading. (The Dora story have me all of the feels)

Disappointed with book. Impressed with narrator.

I've enjoyed other Heinlein books but was disappointed with this one. I'm sure my critique will not be shared by all, but I found that a large percentage of the text was focused on copulation. Not somethingI personally want to read.

I will say the narrator did an excellent job and I'd be interested in listening to more of his work.

Classic Heinlein!

I read this story as a young woman during my first Science Fiction phase. Robert Heinlein's books are readable always, with a strong plot line. This particular book tells the story of a near-immortal family and its members as they march through a history that can only be created by Heinlein.

Loved it the umpteenth time around.

Time Enough to Learn

in this book we get a bridge between stories and characters from the future history of epic scope.
here we learn about a man, 23000 years old, trying to cope with the idea of life. in the tradition of when Socrates meets Phaedrus and talks about love, we get many stories that seem to define what love is to a man that has lived so many lives.
while there is a question about incest and the ethical standards of our age, we must try to see these relationships from the view of a people that have no sickness and live for centuries with few problems. the core is truly about why we choose to live and what love could really be.

just have time Enough to give this excellent performance give life to one of the most timeless of characters, Lazarus Long and the family of the long lived.

One of Heinlein's best

Thoroughly. enjoyed reading this as a youngster and it has not lost anything in the intervening decades.

You might not like his ideas but even his most critical readers must admit he is thought provoking.

I can most readily recommended this work to anyone who enjoys a solid read.

What IS this?!

I really liked The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, and Starship Troopers, so decided I needed to read a lot more Heinlein, but now I'm not so sure... Look, I understand when these books were written, and so was able to overlook the sexism and backwards-thinking in those books (although it was a bit more noticeable in Stranger in a Strange Land, but still enjoyed that one). This book though? WTF. I have no problem with explicit content, and this isn't that. It's just a bunch of weird future-frontiersy pervy fantasy (but without any sex actually described).

The women mostly cook, get told to hush, have their bottoms patted, get naked whenever possible, and make babies. Oh yeah, and literally beg to be impregnated. Even the conscious AI that's put in a woman's body begs Lazarus to put a baby in her. Even Lazarus's female clones do! And when denied, they say something about failing as a woman because they weren't able entice a man into having sex with and impregnating her.

I just feel like I'm reading Heinlein's personal old timey sexual fantasies (except they are tiptoed around - to accomodate the sensibilities of the time, I suppose) disguised as a story...

P.S. At one point he has a female character say, "When a woman gets raped, 9 times out of 10, it's partly her fault." 🤨 *sigh*
