I Will Fear No Evil - Robert A. Heinlein

I'm enjoying this book a lot more now. I can't put my finger on why though. I think maybe that my initial expectations were just too high. I had built it up in my memory as this amazing work but once I got over my initial disappointment and took it at face value it grew on me again. I can't say that it lives up to my memories but I find myself occasionally sniggering at the dialogue between Eunice and Johann. The topic still hasn't changed, it is still all about practising procreation pretty much all of the time but for some reason I don't find it so annoyingly repetitive. It does leave me wondering though: was this how Heinlein thought all the time? Or was this how he thought women think? Or did he just wish that women thought that way?
