Robert A. Heinlein
Age: Grade 11-12
So someone suggested that I read Starship Troopers. Jokes on you sucka, I already have. Many of you have probably seen the movie. It is funny, action packed and one guy has a robot hand (WIN!). But the book is very different. The book looks more at the political and social acceptance of the military, showing a society that has the working class as a second class citizen, where the military is supreme. The movie does touch on a lot of the themes, but mostly it does a great job of using satire to copy the book. The book is a very right, pro-government, pro-military. The movie takes those ideas and makes them almost comical. This is a great book for anyone trying to brush up on their political knowledge, as it shows many examples of a mostly fascist state, but also a fun read. The movie is also awesome, making a nice reward when you finally put the book down.
Hope you enjoyed this review. If you have any questions, comments or books I should read, feel free to write them in the comment section! Thanks!
