Were they truly intelligent? By themselves, that is? I don't know and I don't know how we can ever find out. I'm not a lab man; I'm an operator.
I honestly don't know which Heinlein is my favorite, but it would definitely be either The Puppet Masters or The Door Into Summer. At least of the ones I've read so far. The Door Into Summer is about cold sleep and time travel. The Puppet Masters is about an alien invasion--where the aliens are parasites that take on human hosts. Both books are good--really, really good. Though if you hate science fiction, I doubt either would change your mind. (Connie Willis might change your mind though!)
So. The Puppet Masters is a novel that I think you should definitely try. I am SO SO glad I bought myself a copy.
Read The Puppet Masters
- If you're a fan of classic or vintage science fiction
- If you're a fan of alien-invasion novels
- If you're a fan of Robert Heinlein
- If you like reading about how different authors have envisioned the future. (The novel is set in 2007, I believe).
