REVIEW Starship Troopers

REVIEW Ï eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ☆ Robert A. Heinlein READ ß Starship Troopers Robert A. Heinlein ☆ 8 READ Ee younger sisters Moving to Kansas City Mo at a young age Heinlein graduated from Central High School in 1924 and attended one year of college at Kansas City Community College Following in his older brother's footsteps Heinlein entered the Navel Academy in 1925 After contracting pulmonary tuberculosis of which he was later cured Heinlein retired from the Navy and married Leslyn Macdonald Heinlein was said to have held jobs in real estate and photography before he began working as a staff writer for Upton Sinclair's EPIC News in 1938 Still needing money desperately Heinlein entered a writing contest sponsored by the s. Starship Troopers is listed amongst the recommended books by the United States Air Force for a reason For those who plan on pursuing a military career this book exhibits the very ideals upon which our current military standards are based Camaraderie Sacrifice and Responsibility are than mere words to the protagonist The distinction between a fighting man and a soldier is made The distinction between a superior rank and a true officer is made Johnny Rico is a soldier in than merely name and the reader discovers this through this narrativeFor those of you who have seen the film incarnation of this story simply forget it It won t aid you in understanding or predicting the outcome of this book The tempo messages and level of seriousness are completely different Most of you know the pitfalls of watching the movie first so I implore you to read this book before seeing the movie If you have already seen the movie as I stated before forget itThere is one thing I would mention that is perhaps the fault of this book Heinlein shapes a militaristic possibly even oppressive society out of the remaining nations on earth He touts the virtues of citizenry only being earned through dedicated service At the same time he manages to skirt by some of the practical and realistic attitudes of people The society could very well work if it was implemented exactly in the fashion it is described in his novel but the transition from our current societal structure to this system of government is EXTREMELY unlikely It takes the edge off of the bold concepts making this book only a 4 starTo end on a positive note I ll say this When I finally finished this novel I had a brief spark inside of me For once in my entire career I felt a sense of pride in being a soldier No military training no officer and certainly no civilian has ever made me feel as proud of my profession as that novel has

Starship Troopers

REVIEW Ï eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ☆ Robert A. Heinlein READ ß Starship Troopers Robert A. Heinlein ☆ 8 READ It is told through the eyes of Starship Trooper Johnny Rico from his idealistic enlistment in the infantry of the future through his rigorous training to the command of his own platoon of infantrymen His destiny is a galactic war of unlimited violence and destruction in which he and his fellow troopers scour the metal strewn emptiness of space to hunt down a terrifying enemy an insect life form which threatens the very future of mankind About The Author Robert Anson Heinlein was born on July 7 1907 in Butler Mo The son of Rex Ivar and Bam Lyle Heinlein Robert Heinlein had two older brothers one younger brother and thr. My first impulse is to dismiss it as an appalling piece of militaristic propaganda whose one saving grace is that it s at least much better than the movie But that wouldn t be doing the book justice With all its faults I simply loved it as a 14 year old and I m in no way alone there Why is it so fascinatingLet me start by dismissing a couple of possible theories One reviewer wonders if it s deadpan satire I suppose when you see some of Heinlein s later books Stranger in a Strange Land 1961 I Will Fear No Evil 1970 you may get the idea that he s some kind of hippy New Age prophet and that Starship Troopers is poking fun at the militaristic right I don t think that idea stands up to serious examination Many of Heinlein s early books extol militaristic right winglibertarian virtues Sixth Column 1949 is a particularly flagrant example From what I ve heard the satire theory is in fact the reverse of the truth Stranger in a Strange Land was originally conceived as a satire Heinlein was surprised to see that people liked it and read it straight and flexible than he s often made out he rewrote it that way and followed it up with a couple of similar booksMany people are taking Starship Troopers at face value and appreciate how it presents the military in a positive light Well there s clearly something to that But why does this book as opposed to many others do such a fantastic job of selling this particular point of view If you re a soldier yourself I can see that Heinlein also a soldier can make you proud of what you re doing But my parents were strict believers in non violence and I ve never had any contact with that world at all I still thought it was greatSo on mature consideration here s another theory which I claim relates better to Heinlein s oeuvre as a whole By the way I m only saying oeuvre because I know it would annoy him One theme that he keeps returning to over and over again in different forms is the relationship between the self and the rest of the universe Heinlein s metaphysics were distinctly odd he wasn t sure that he liked the rest of the universe much or even if it existed in the first place You can occasionally see this idea presented in a straightforward way In his short story They 1941 it turns out that the paranoid main character is completely right about what s going on He s the most important person in the world everyone else for reasons never revealed is involved in a gigantic conspiracy against him whose main purpose is to prevent him from discovering who he really is In The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag 1942 we find again that things truly aren t as they seem and that all existence is illusory The world we learn at the end is a work of art and can be changed at any moment Hoag is in fact an art critic sent to judge us on aesthetic grounds And in the classic time travel story All You Zombies 1959 the hero discovers that he s his own father and mother As he says he knows where he came from but where did all you zombies come from The final paragraph gives us to understand that other people may not exist at allAs we see Heinlein rather likes solipsism which when you come down to it isn t as ridiculous a philosophical position as you might think Wittgenstein the solipsist is saying something sensible but chooses an odd way to express it Heinlein has a strong sense of self and wants to erect a barrier as tangible as possible between him and the rest of the world A powerful metaphor for this barrier which he used many times is the space suit Have Space Suit Will Travel 1958 is not one of his best books but the descriptions of what it s like to walk around in a space suit are uite good I remember them clearly when most of the rest of the story has faded Similarly Space Cadet 1948 which I read at primary school is hastily written and uninspired but again the only scene I can recall clearly is the one where the teenage hero throws up in his space suit after inadvisedly drinking a mint julep I was so impressed by this that I didn t dare try a mint julep myself until I was in my mid 40s I hope you see where I m going What makes Starship Troopers so effective I claim is the space suit theme which here is taken to its logical conclusion The Mobile Infantry Suit simultaneously cuts off its wearer from the rest of the world and makes him almost invincible It s no coincidence that the stunning opening scene highlights the suit s amazing capabilities The hero is dropped directly from space onto a hostile planet and spreads mayhem with his high tech weapons while jumping a mile at a time in his jet propelled boots all without needing to touch anything directly or feel involved in the fates of the humanoid creatures he s killing by the hundred Fans of the book uniformly hated the movie for budget reasons Verhoeven took out the suits which were too complicated to render effectively After that everything felt wrong The most important part of the imagery was missing As already noted Heinlein wasn t writing a satire he appeared to believe in this stuff but I think he found a good way to dramatize what it means to be a member of the American military industrial complex The Suit gives its wearer superhuman technological powers while excluding the rest of the world to the point where it barely exists at all And the power the Suit confers isn t just military but also political and moral In Heinlein s world one only becomes a full citizen after serving in the military I don t agree that this is a desirable way to organize a society but Heinlein was describing what he saw in 1959 Eisenhower a former general was nearing the end of his second term and would be succeeded by Kennedy a decorated war hero Both were very popular Now of course things have changed and the military industrial complex is usually cast as the villain In Avatar I couldn t help thinking that the robotic exoskeleton worn by the evil Colonel uaritch in the final scene was rather like the Mobile Infantry Suit the Colonel s defeat as many people have pointed out can be read as predicting the impending defeat of American Imperialism at the hands of a resurgent Third World I do wonder what Heinlein would have made of that
