Heinlein books

Any one here read a novel by Robert A Heinlein who is a classic scifi author, the film Starship troopers was actual based on his novel of the same title. Although they have little in common, they are both equally good. The film is simple but enjoyable while the book is a thought provoking if slightly controversial novel. Most of Heinlein books are very interesting and can be quite a challange to read, I have read the following titles of his books Starship troopers, The moon is a harsh mistress, Stranger from a strange land and am at the current time reading Puppet Masters. All are great has anyone read any of his books ?

Re: Heinlein books

I still rank Stranger in a Strange Land in my top five list but, oddly enough, I never really liked anything else from Heinlen, the aforementioned Starship Troopers I found hugely disspointing.

Between Planets:
Donald Harvey heads to Venus just at the time that Venus declares independence from Earth. Before he knows it he's caught up in a war where the Earth is trying to reconquer Venus. They're also after Don too--he has a secret ring with information on it that can change the outcome of the war. He has to get the ring to the right parties or else the war will be really lost.
