Starship Troopers

by Robert A. Heinlein
Starship Troopers - Robert A. Heinlein 7.76   12

Hugo Award winner 1960.

Robert Heinlein's Starship Troopers are the jet-propelled infantrymen of the future. In a galactic war of untold violence and destruction, they scour the metal-strewn emptiness of space and hunt out The Enemy.

But neither the viciousness of their electronic armour nor the bloodthirsty militarism of their training can save them from the grip of loneliness and fear.

Heinlein is an acknowledged master of Science Fiction, a genius who has become a spokesman for a whole generation. And his starship trooper John Rico, rising from boyhood dreams to high command in the cosmos, is a hero of the first dimension - and beyond.

I loved this book -- read it straight after "The Forever War" and the continued theme of war, training and the individual reactions to how this makes them feel is continued in this book. This book is more philosophical than "The Forever War" but not in an overwhelming way, but leaves you thinking about the issues long after you put the book down.
