Good early Heinlein, which is pretty good. "Revolt" posits a United States which has been taken over by a corrupt theocracy, and traces the fortunes of a group of people who join the underground (literally) plot to overthrow the government. The characters are not exactly fully fleshed, but the ideas are interesting, and the detail of the society in question (as so often in Heinlein) one of the book's strong points. Funny, a corrupt theocracy doesn't sound nearly as improbable as it did back in the 1950's, when I first read this.

It's a good, fast read with a couple of interesting themes in it. First, the U.S. has become a corrupt theocracy, which is a different future than most SF writers have looked at. The second is a unified field theory for science, where they figure out how gravity, electricity & magnetism all work. This break through in science is leveraged in the revolt. I found it interesting that time was left out, but the pseudo-science is fun.It's a very monochrome view of a revolution. The bad guys are really bad, the good guys are heroic, with pure motives. Not nearly as good as "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" but not a bad, quick shot at it.
