Robert Heinlein, «Starship Troopers»

The movie is to the original book what taco bell is to real mexican food. Very interesting, at least if you study political science.

Juan Rico signed up with the Federal Service on a lark, but despite the hardships and rigorous training, he finds himself determined to make it as a cap trooper. In boot camp he will learn how to become a soldier, but when he graduates and war comes (as it always does for soldiers), he will learn why he is a soldier. Many consider this Hugo Award winner to be Robert Heinlein's finest work, and with good reason. Forget the battle scenes and high-tech weapons (though this novel has them) – this is Heinlein at the top of his game talking people and politics.
