OK - it's just like The Number of the Beast for the first 150 pages or so.
What I found tedious about that book is the constant bickering about who is
in charge and who can say what to whom, and who should be pilot and on and
on.  Then concepts of honor, etiquette and manners get involved, and can go
on for pages.

Then there is the question of what to wear - the answer being not much, but
many pages of detail.

Now this latest book The Pursuit of the Pankera - they do go some different
places, but it's mostly the same sort of thing, including a visit to OZ.
The bickering is mostly gone, but manners and what to wear are still there
in abundance.

Did I enjoy it?  Yes, I did, and knew ahead of time that the same concepts
would be explored, some in tedious detail.  I still recommend it for
Heinlein fans.  But if you have read The Number of the Beast you might want
to save your $20.
