In one of Robert Heinlein’s most controversial bestsellers, a recruit of the future goes through the toughest boot camp in the Universe–and into battle with the Terran Mobile Infantry against mankind’s most frightening enemy.
This book was made into a decent movie that was spun off into a terrible sequel.
I am not a fan of the movies, but I do love this book.
I like most of Heinlein’s books, but this is probably my favorite. I like the idea that you have to serve to vote, but I am not so hard that I think that the service must be in the military.
Not everyone is cut out for Starship Troopers Mobile Infantry.
I disagree with the Amazon quote that this is Heinlein’s most controversial work – I think Farnham’s Freehold easily wins that title. I also think that Freehold may be my favorite Heinlein book if Starship Troopers ever dropped in Status.
