Robert Heinlein
Starship Troopers
1959

Don't be fooled by the atrocious movie they made from this book. This is one of the all-time classics of science fiction. Any book which can be simultaneously labeled by various critics as "fascist propaganda" and a "lovesong to liberty" has got to be worth reading. Heinlein's ground-breaking novel was originally intended for the juvenile market. However, mix together libertarian rantings, disgusted views on bloated military bureaucracies, a cynical polemic on our criminal justice system and you've got yourself a meaty and timeless story for readers of all ages. Oh yeah, it's got plenty of gnarly bug hunts too. Just pretend you never saw the movie.
