    One thought on “The Notebooks of Lazarus Long

    1. Sobriquet on said:

      Make no mistake I love Heinlein, I adore Heinlein, I think the man is a god in the genre but a spastically snarling part of me loathes Lazarus Long Lazarus Long, the man who lives forever, the man with a brain I envy, the man with many women I cannot stand him Starship Troopers and the thirty second bomb I salute Stranger in a Strange Land I shed an ironically pathetic tear with and so goes with most of his work, preachiness and all That man had Good Ideas Let us be armed, let us be participants [...]

    2. Ruetha on said:

      This edition of The Notebooks of Lazarus Long is eloquently illustrated with calligraphy to add a luxury to this wealth of good advice.When I first began reading Heinlein, I was a child of no than eleven This, like the book it is collected from Time Enough for Love , and other of his works played major parts in shaping my personal philosophy, mode of thinking, and subsequently myself into who I am today That said, I hold a strong bias toward most things Heinlein I love this collection of quotes [...]

      Nicely done with some illuminations Lazarus Long is a character from Robert A Heinlein This book is a collection of comments from him Place your clothes and weapons where you can find them in the dark.

    4. Andrew on said:

      SO I am a sucker for Heinlein s work I admit it but this one intrigued me Now the wiki page pretty much sums this book up its short mainly because it was made up from articles and comments made in other publications which were attributed to Lazarus Long rather in the same fictitious vein as the Book Of Counted Sorrows by Dean Koontz So some industrious person has collected them all in to one book or in this case an e book since the Bean paperback was unavailable They are an interesting mix of co [...]

    5. Jim on said:

      You ll find most of this in Time Enough for Love other books Having all that preaching together in one place is just too much Lazarus is the oldest man alive while he s entertaining, he s overbearing full of himself After Time Enough for Love he was a major figure in other books it all got to be too much for me Too little story, too much father figure preaching.I absolutely love a lot of the sayings attributed to Lazarus Long, though They re witty very often true Stuff like paraphrase An elephan [...]

    6. M.M. Strawberry Reviews on said:

      Mind you, before you purchase this, you need to know that it is not a novel, but a collection of quotes and such from Lazarus Long, hence the title, although given its length, it should be notebook , not notebooks Some of these quotes you can find in various books with the character, but this book does come in handy because there s some pretty clever quotes here.

    7. J.A.Birch on said:

      I loved this Some of the things said are funny, or simple, or insightful, or anything else Heinlein has been one of those authors I hear frequently about from my father and I am so glad he has lent me this illustrated copy illustrations by D.F.Vassallo I shall go and buy my own copy to keep and flick through when I need.Beautifully illustrated and a wonderful collection of thoughts from the character of Lazarus Long.

    8. Justine Ten on said:

      Mr Heinlein and Mr Long are back in the forefront of my gray matter Not sure why but I know the solution Library Some of my favorite obvervations by the fictional Lazarus Long are By the data to date, there is only one animal in the Galaxy dangerous to man man himself So he must supply his own indispensable competition He has no enemy to help him.Men are sentimental than women It blurs their thinking.Certainly the game is rigged Don t let that stop you if you don t bet, you can t win.Any priest [...]

    9. Stephen on said:

      Quotes from Notebooks appear just about everywhere Entire copies of this book are available on many websites The best thing about the quotes is their original context which this volume strips away entirely.The contents of this book are merely an excerpt from Heinlein s Time Enough For Love, the magnum opus that gives us the most complete view available of Heinlein s beloved protagonist Lazarus Long Read as coming from that romantically pragmatic survivalist curmudgeon can any one person fit that [...]

    10. Seizure Romero on said:

      I m rather ambivalent towards most of Heinlein s writing, but this collection of quotes is an entertaining and quick read A poet who reads his verse in public may have other nasty habits It is better to copulate than never and one that is rather timely You can have peace Or you can have freedom Don t ever count on having both at once reminiscent of a favorite of mine, attributed to Benjamin Franklin Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither l [...]

    11. Tom Schulte on said:

      this is a collection of aphorisms in a special edition illuminated by calligrapher D F Vassallo these bon mots at times reminded me of Twain, like expecting climate and getting weather I like the nerdier ones like specialization being for insects and anyone who cannot cope with mathematics is not fully human At best he is a tolerable subhuman who has learned to wear shoes

    12. Fred on said:

      History does not record anywhere at any time a religion that has a rational basis Religion is not strong enough to stand up to the unknown without help Robert Heinlein via Lazarus LongAmazing collection of wisdom and beautiful book if you get a chance to add one to your collection you should This edition is amazingly illustrated.

    13. Mark Woodland on said:

      This is required reading for any fan of Heinlein, the Future History series, and the character of Lazarus Long All sorts of bit sof wisdom and quotes from a variety of books, including a lot from Time Enough for Love , which is one of my favorites Very amusing, and tells you a lot about the author.

    14. Tim Gannon on said:

      It is a compilation of sayings of Lazarus Long who is an immortal from the works of Robert Heinlein This book has many of the sayings illustrated by a master calligrapher From time to time, I do enjoy reading the sayings of others My hopes are that some wisdom that they impart can make my own journey a little richer.

    15. Jason Yang on said:

      I picked this up at a coffeeshop, not knowing what to expect There are a lot of funny interesting statements here, but I get the feeling that I would appreciate this if I read any of the other works be Heinlein Apparently, this notebook has something to do with his science fiction series.

    16. Stew on said:

      Okay, but I found out I had already read it The Notebooks of Lazarus Long is also included in Heinlein s novel Time Enough for Love , and that is what I would suggest you read instead.

    17. Joe on said:

      I read a much earlier edition of this repeatedly It is one of my favorite books ever Lazarus Long is hilarious and while being gut busting at times, Notebooks is full of wisdom too.

    18. Rick Bavera on said:

      Quotable writing from Heinlein This short book is full of some deep thoughts from one of the masters of science fiction I enjoyed re reading this book It went quickly Agreed with most of what is in it, too Not all, but most.

    19. CJ on said:

      Wow I know it s a classic, and required reading for several of Heinlein s other character arcs, but the middle of this was a slog.

    20. Spacerguy on said:

      A philosophy book disguised as science fiction Thought provoking.

    22. Kim on said:

      I thought this would be of a novel, and less notes by the main character It was interesting, but not as much as I had hoped.

    23. Jess on said:

      Some observations from Lazarus the ageless man Never fight a small man, he ll kill you and the best way to tell a lie is to tell the truth so unconvincingly that no one believes you.

    24. Anachie Stayrook on said:

      A collection of quotes and sayings from one of Heinlein s most enduring and insightful characters Some profound, some practical, others mildly silly.

    25. Terri on said:

      If I were able to do needlepoint, my home would be adorned with many of these quotes.

    26. Sarah on said:

      The Notebooks are contained within Time Enough for Love, but this is just the wonderful gems culled from the book Lazarus is a riot and Heinlein is a genius.
