Community Reviews

Almost entirely unrelated to the movie.

Starship Troopers is about a future interstellar war between humanity and an alien race called the Bugs.

There's actually not much of a plot. The storyline is just a skeletal framework on which Heinlein builds his future society. He expounds endlessly on systems of government, "moral development", and military tactics and technology. It was actually pretty interesting.

Dated language was a little distracting from time to time, but overall it was quite a good read.
