Best Sci Fi Book!
Which is the Best Sci Fi Book in your opinion?

I think 2010: Odyssey Two was the best, it was well written, but unfortunatly the movie didn't do it justice.

Midwich Cuckoos was my favourite as a kid.

There have been so many science fiction books over the years that have had influence. My vote would have to go to several titles. I cannot choose just one.

Stranger in a Strange Land - Robert Heinlein
Ferenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury
Eon - Greg Bear
Jurassic Park - Michael Crichton
Invisible Man - H.G. Wells
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea - H.G. Wells
Time Enough For Love - Robert Heinlein
Starship Troopers - Robert Heinlein
Dune - Frank Herbert
Foundation Trilogy - Isaac Asimov
I Robot - Isaac Asimov
1984 - George Orwell
Enders Game - Orson Scott Card

Each of these books are worth a read. I cannot select just one and if I could I would probably list around 50.

Now we need a fantasy thread!
