    eBook teachenglishthailand.co.uk ¶ Starship Troopers eBook º starship ebok, troopers free, Starship Troopers KindleMy first impulse is to dismiss it as an appalling piece of militaristic propaganda whose one saving grace is that it's at least much better than the movie But that wouldn't be doing the book justice With all its faults I simply loved it as a 14 year old and I'm in no way alone there Why is it so fascinating?Let me start by dismissing a couple of possible theories One reviewer wonders if it's deadpan satire I suppose when y

    eBook teachenglishthailand.co.uk ¶ Starship Troopers eBook º starship ebok, troopers free, Starship Troopers KindleA great work of science fictionThis is not at all about action and fighting bugs it is a study of a man’s compulsion to fight and or serve his country and a discussion about our society’s and any society’s responsibility to its citizens and what is best for society Like many Heinlein novels it works well on many levels the surface science fiction and then the deeper complicated voice of the storyteller speaking from his own experienceThis is a controversial book Criticized for espousing a militaristic maybe fascist ide

    eBook teachenglishthailand.co.uk ¶ Starship Troopers eBook º starship ebok, troopers free, Starship Troopers KindleI enjoyed this book greatly While I certainly can't be said to agree with Heinlein on every aspect of life politics or theologyI do appreciate where he's coming from in this book Remember it's a 1959 book before the idiotic handling of Vietnam became apparent There are thought provoking ideas in this book even if it is considered a YA book Agree or disagree it's a good read By the way I must say this It's often actually often than not true that a movie doesn't live up to the book In this case that would be like saying the Atlantic Ocean isn't exactly like Death Valley If your only experience with Starship Troopers is the movie of that name then you don't know anything about this book excepting the names of a few cha

    eBook teachenglishthailand.co.uk ¶ Starship Troopers eBook º starship ebok, troopers free, Starship Troopers KindleWhere do I even begin? For starters I should let the reader know that I'm not basing my score on the politics of the book as laughable as I think they are but on the plot of the book or rather the complete lack of a plot in the book While things do happen some of them pretty big Mr Heinlein has seen fit that we should not be party to any of those things Instead he saves the most loving descriptions for daily life at boot camp Seventy yes seventy pages of a two hundred odd page book are dedicated to boot camp Within those pages we learn the importance of food and being able to sleep in any condition Thrill to the excitment of marching into the middle of nowhere You will weep and wail along with the officers when you hear them lament the fact that they are compelled nay forced to flog their men when they misbehave Honestly you could watch the beginning of Full Metal Jacket and skip reading that whole part and save yourself some time and be entertained in the me

Well – it clearly inspired the film but it doesn’t have the same style at all Translation – the book is smart and while I was reading I was al

    eBook teachenglishthailand.co.uk ¶ Starship Troopers eBook º starship ebok, troopers free, Starship Troopers KindleUPDATEDStarship Troopers was definitely a page turner and one did feel like he was on the ground with the Mobile Infantry bouncing around killing Bugs But It was also incredibly pro war and the middle development section got a little long You remember how great Full Metal Jacket was but that the great parts were at the very beginning and at the very end? Well I felt that this book also started and ended with adrenaline rushes but that the middle was a bit flat That being said the realism and the imagination around the weapons and tech were pretty good I definitely see how influential Heinlein was on subseuent science fiction and it is impressive that this was written back in '59 The Bugs were never given any treatment to make them less of an enemy which seemed a bit like the vilification of say blacks or arabs by the extreme right I would almost give him the benefit of the doubt that this was a critiue of societ
