Finished reading Citizen of the Galaxy by Robert Heinlein. In a distant galaxy where slavery is still alive and well young Thorby, just another orphaned boy, is sold at auction. But his new owner, Baslim, is not the disabled beggar he appears to be. Adopting Thorby as his son, Baslim fights relentlessly as an abolitionist spy. When the authorities shorten Baslim, Thorby must ride with galatic Free Traders, a league of merchant princes, throughout the worlds of a hostile galaxy. But Thorby’s destiny changes forever when he discovers the truth about his own identity.
Citizen of the Galaxy is a great book. I enjoyed the different phases of Thorby’s journey has he discovers his origins. Heinlein is an excellent writer. He really draws you into the story with amazing imagery and character development.
