So I signed up for this science fiction course thinking that it would be interesting and a nice change of pace, maybe even find some new books to enjoy that I wouldn't have read before. So far we have read Frankenstein which was okish (except for being very violent and sad), The War of the Worlds (put me to sleep for two hours), and now we are reading Starship Troopers which only causes me to want to hit my head against a wall.
Seriously!? Not one good book as of yet. Ik there is good science fiction out there because I've read it but this is just rediculous. The next two don't look too promising either: Neuromancer and A Canticle for Lebowitz

Oy sound likes a total borefest! Congrats on actually getting through the books though. Sadly I don't know, or have ran into a good science fiction yet. I'd take a look around BN and at the reviews, maybe you can find something better then!

The Ender series by Orson Scott Card is really good. There are a bunch and the series is seperated into books following two different characters. I went through the first couple really quickly. I honestly couldn't put them down.
