|I enjoyed your article. Both Ender's Game and Starship Troopers are great books, with Starship Troopers being my favourite book. I agree completely about the movie version, I nearly stormed out of the theatre, but instead settled for saying loudly "This is terrible, it is nothing like what Heinlein wrote." I guess my tone was so angry, no one told me to shut up.
I wonder why Verhoeven who hated his military service and lived under the Nazis (take a close look at the costume designs in ST), chose or was chosen to direct the film? While Verhoeven might be anti-war, the book certainly makes justifications. Maybe he should have read the book.
Maybe I should withdraw my name, incase of a defamation suit. But, I think it would be worth it for Heinlein.
