Post 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.

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!

Kevin

I haven't read Turtledove's "Guns of the South" series yet, but I have read the "Worldwar" saga...
