I agree with Scotman on this one. Ender is put in a military like school where he is required to play simulated video war games which turn out to be not so "simulated." Difficult to put this book down

Asimov is the best of the classic Science Fiction writers and his Foundation series are the best works he produced. Here is the introduction to the fall of the Galactic Empire and the predictions of Hari Seldon.
The best book to date from Robert J. Sawyer, in my opinion the best science fiction writer around. Explores important legal issues that might arise from uploading copies of your mind to an android body.

The book was far better than any of the movies. Could apes possibly have original thoughts or can they really only copy things that they have seen or experienced?

There are so many wonders of science that are too "perfect" to have happened by chance. Even aliens know this concept. A wonderful tale by a science fiction master.

In the near future, youths are given their 'careers" when they reach twelve years old. What happens to those who don't want those positions and the elderly? An updated version of Logan's Run.

Can a book based on a comic make my list? The answer is a resounding yes! If you did not ever hear of Superman or any other comic book you could easily read this thriller story and think that it is a regular science fiction book. Arguing political factions on a dying planet prevent any meaningful action to be taken to save the planet. Very relevent with what happens in our government today.

A powerful look 300 years into the future where poverty and war have been virtually eliminated because individuals are incorporated. Thus, many people have a monetary incentive to see that all individuals thrive. Justin Cord survives from another time and fights being incorporated as he believes it is a form of slavery. Wonderfully, written and sure to be a classic!
