Talk:I Will Fear No Evil

This article could use some fleshing-out. Popefelix 14:47, 18 Apr 2005 (UTC)
The plot description is overly opinionated and needs to be rewritten to remove commentary. Just a summary description is needed. Gladmax 12:33, 13 September 2006 (UTC)
- Not only rampant POV, but outright errors. "it is generally believed that his wife Virginia handled much of the editing". The book was half edited when his health problems intervened; Mrs. Heinlein decided to release it without any final cuts. And "almost entirely about sex" is, to put it kindly, a point of view. The article needs some serious work. -- Jim Douglas (talk) (contribs) 04:05, 16 October 2006 (UTC)
Imaginary or not?
The article states 'Whether Eunice's personality is real or a figment of Johann's imagination is never fully resolved in the novel.'
As I recall, they actually did determine that she was not a figment of his imagination. Or am I wrong? The Storm Surfer 03:53, 29 October 2006 (UTC)
- It's ambiguous enough that you can argue for either interpretation. -- Jim Douglas (talk) (contribs) 03:58, 29 October 2006 (UTC)
"like the modern Internet"
The article says "his 1982 novel Friday portrayed something very like the modern Internet". This is not true. Heinlein's description is hierarchical/browse driven like the old Yahoo pages, not search driven. If it were like Wikipedia or YouTube then Friday would have gone to "Irwin Corey" or done a text search. See for example http://www.dalkescientific.com/writings/diary/archive/2007/11/29/worlds_greatest_authority.html —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 01:56, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
- Huh? The Internet isn't "search driven". The Web is, to a large extent, but not totally -- and the Web is not the Internet. The Internet is IP driven. (i.e, Internet Protocol, not "Intellectual Property".)--CRConrad (talk) 15:33, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
Supposed relation to Time Enough For Love / Future Histories / World As Myth
The article references page 103 of the paperback of Time Enough For Love (what edition?), but what is the specific phrase you're intending to cite? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 23:33, 16 April 2012 (UTC)
Ace, 1988; Lazarus Long and Minerva (computer) are talking about experiencing sex from the other POV and Lazarus mentions the story of the male to female brain transplant. htom (talk) 03:39, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
Joan or Joanne
As I remember it, Johann adopts the name "Joan, with two syllables", not "Joanne". It stuck in my mind as a striking example of unawareness of how real people talk. —Tamfang (talk) 02:01, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
