recommend me a good sci-fi book

Postby creativewriting » Wed Nov 30, 2011 11:17 pm

So I haven't read anything for a while since I've been focusing on business and school. I'm long overdue to read a book. Can someone recommend me an exceptional science fiction book?

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a fun classic if you haven't already read it.

Three good books come to mind. The first two you may have already read because they are so popular: Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card and Neuromancer by William Gibson. The last is one I read years ago as a teenager, and it still haunts me today: Bug Jack Baron by Norman Spinrod.

Anything by Robert Heinlein. Make that EVERYTHING by Robert Heinlein.

If you haven't yet read it, I recommend the Dune series by Frank Herbert.

I agree.. Robert Heinlein is a good author... I really liked his book 'Stranger in a Strange Land'... it is definitely worth picking up.. very philosophical..

Another interesting science fiction read is 'A voyage to Arcturus' by David Lindsay... it is not really a well known book..

but it has some interesting views about philosophy.. thats kind of why I liked it.. the way he interwove his philosophy into his story narrative..

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury ... not exactly sci-fi but it's a dystopia setting
Dune Series by Frank Herbert ... and only the original ones by Frank Herbert
His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman

Some good choices here! I'll add +1 to Frank Herbert's Dune series, anything by Heinlein, and OSC's Ender series. Loved them all.

If you're looking for something slightly off the well-known track, try Philip Jose Farmer's "Riverworld" series.
