1. Ramou caught Larry by the shoulder and spun him around.

1. It was very unlike him to lose his temper like thisтАФ and bullying certainly wasn't his style.

Book Three of "Starship Troupers"The fledgling Star Company lands on the prosperous colony planet of Citadel only to discover that the world they have selected for their latest performance is a Puritan world where even the sight of female limbs is considered shocking and theater is forbidden!
I enjoy all of Christopher Stasheff's books. He has good plots, enjoyable characters and dialogues. The series is very good.
Can a travelling group of interplanetary players make it on a world where theatre is taboo? The answer makes a fun and interesting read! As a study in "what makes an actor tick" and "backstage at the playhouse", this book should be read by anyone who works in 'tech' or has friends in theatre (and has problems in figuring out how they think!). The book may disappoint fans of Clarke, Hogan, and Forward, but they really should give it a chance. The story is fun and human with its share of stereotypes (loudmouth leading lady, sexy soubrette, organized organizer), but there are also some good, genuine, down-to-brass tacks periods of emotion, snappy banter and copious punning. I've reread this book several times, and it's still a fun story! (Mr. Stasheff, if you see this, IT'S TIME FOR THE NEXT ADVENTURE of the Star Company!)
So this story was a wonderful amazing group of characters who were honest and flawed but able to be part of the group. It saddens me even more that Mr. Stasheff has passed in June of 2018 so the world will likely never have an ending.
And they said "Theatre is dead." This novel reminds me of the "medison shows" I saw as a kid, and the chase continues from the first two novels. I can't wait for the next in the siries.
I loved this book! The series is great, providing a wonderful insight into theatrical culture for outsiders like me. I only have one teeny, tiny complaint. There is a constant foreshadowing of events to come, which we still haven't seen yet. Is Mr. Stasheff hinting at another book? If so, WRITE IT, PLEASE! I'm dying of anticipation!
The (so-far) ultimate book in a very entertaining series. Please Please Mr Stasheff write more. As a theatre professional who loves science fiction I beleive you have caught much of the truth behind "The show must go on". Sure your characters are stereotypes but stereotypes only survive because there is some truth in them. Press on.
I just purchased all three of the Starship Troupers series -- they were wonderful!!! How disappointing to discover there are no more. Mr. Stasheff, please consider writing more -- you have left us hanging! What about the Man in Gray, Elector Rudders, Prudence, Ramou, Horace and the rest? AAAAAGHH!!!
