Give me your interpretation of this quote, please*
I’ve been reading “Stranger in a Strange Land” by Robert Heinlein. I don’t call it ‘re-reading’ because it’s actually the first time I’m reading it in its original english version and, even more, the complete uncensored text. (“The earlier edition contained a few words over 160,000, while this one runs around 220,000 words.”)
If you read my About the Author’s page, you’ll find out that this book is very special to me, but I’m not going to talk about the book here because I’ve come to the conclusion that it is very boring to read about a book that you’re not actually reading, yourself. (If you ever read it, let me know.)
This post is to take note of the wisdom I find in this writer, in such a way that I find myself agreeing with every quote I find of him. But because pasting a list of quotes reads boring as well, lets just think about one that got me filled with interrogation marks since I read it and only now, after having written the post “Are You Real” two days ago, do I really understand it. (I hope.)
* Writing is not necessarily something to be ashamed of, but do it in private and wash your hands afterwards.
Robert A. Heinlein
If you are reading this, let me know what is your interpretation of it.
I am very interested.
