Mycroft, newly sentient AI, runs the Lunar administration, childishly eager hero
WalkingWetdreamWoman, almost has enough personality to be attractive. One of Heinlein's better efforts.
Luna is a repressed Earth colony. To Manuel, this is just a fact of life, until one day Earth goes too far, and he and a band of like-minded men and women take up the fight for a free Luna.
And wonder of wonders, the heroine is actually almost like a human being! There's a bit of a love triangle between her, Manuel, and Mycroft, and she's sympathetic enough that she doesn't read like a beard.
I called it action rather than anthro science fiction, but it still has a great description of Luna society. The world comes alive for you, and I bet you can't read about it and not want to go visit.--Only 77 years to wait now!
#2 The Cat who Walks through Walls--it's actually a sequel to all of Heinlein's best books, and the Loonie content is low.
