Time Event
30 Day Book Meme - Day 22
Day 22 – Favorite book you own

My college graduation present from my mother was a hardcover first edition of Starship Troopers. She knows me well. It's one of my favorite books and that's a beautiful edition of it.

As for why it's my favorite: Heroism. Duty. A hard look at what governments are, why we have them, and discussions of some alternatives from the defaults we grew up with. Encounters with aliens who are actually alien. The eternal issue of how a boy becomes a man.

Someday someone should make a movie of it.
