and the book...

I am well into Burroughs' book. I am finding some similarities with other books written at about the same time or earlier, by certain writers like Heinlein. An emphasis on sex, and particularly on male sex. The women in this book are procreators. I don't think any have any names. I think it would be difficult for most women to like this book. I am becoming a little fond of the private investigator as a person, but the other characters are not much more than hollow shells.

Is it me? I wonder sometimes. I found Heinlein's work simplistic and his characters cardboard, yet there are so many people out there who worship him. What am I missing with some of these writers?
