awesome sociopolitical commentary. NOT the same as the movie! some of the characters are the same, but this is much deeper than just kill the bugs

An excellent sci-fi war novel from the viewpoint of a grunt. This novel has very little in common with the movie of the same name. This book is more akin to "Platoon" in space than anything else. The reason is because it's essentially Heinlein retelling his experiences island-hopping during WWII with a futuristic twist. One of his best books.

THIS IS NOTHING LIKE THE MOVIE OR EVEN CLOSE TO THE MOVIE WHICH IS A GOOD THING.

This is a story narrated by a guy who is becoming a soldier in the future, and all of the experiences he has with fellow officers, and some of the missions against the Bugs...

I have read a couple Heinlein books now. I love his writing style. Having seen the movie, I expected the book to be similar but better. This went leaps and bounds beyond my expectations! Heinlein had a lot more to say than "Kill the bugs!"

Starship Troopers is classic Heinlein, pulpy, funny sci-fi from the golden age. It reads like a propaganda pamphlet for Heinlein's political and moral views, and he doesn't mind just banging the reader over the head with his message all the way through. But, this is a book from a time when science fiction writers were actual visionaries who charged themselves with defining the future of the human race, so I forgive him.
