Die Menschheit befindet sich ein einem unerbittlichen Krieg mit den Bugs, Insektenwesen aus den Tiefen des Weltalls, einem Krieg, der alle Lebensbereiche durchdringt. Die Bürgerrechte werden auf der Erde nur jenem zugesprochen, der seinen Militärdienst geleistet hat. Auch die Soldaten an Bord der Rodger Young müssen in den Kampf zeihen. Sie sind Starship Troopers, die Infanteristen in diesem galaktischen Konflikt, und sie trifft der Schrecken, die Einsamkeit und die Angst am härtesten ... 1959 erhielt Robert Heinlein für diesen Roman den Hugo Award, einen der international bedeutendsten Preise der Science Fiction. Seit seinem Erscheinen löst er immer wieder heftige Diskussionen aus. Eines ist jedoch sicher: Er ist einer der spannendsten Romane des Autors und zählt zu seinen Schlüsselwerken. Aufwendig fürs Kino verfilmt wurde das Buch Ende der 90er Jahre von Paul Verhoeven.

Denn Großmutter, die eine bekannte Schauspielerin ist, hat sie an Madame Fidolias Ballett- und Schauspielakademie angemeldet. Tanzen und Schauspielern?! Damit haben die drei doch überhaupt nichts am Hut – oder etwa doch?

This book is intended to help preteens and teenagers understand God?s word and revelation presented in the Bible. Its purpose is to teach biblical doctrines about God, the Holy Spirit, creation, angels, the devil, and sin through a story that attempts to draw children?s attention and make the Bible easier to understand?make it simpler, not simplistic. Sometimes, Bible stories may be too complicated or not intellectually challenging enough for this age group, who are avid fiction readers, unaware that the Bible is so much richer with its fantastic beings, amazing creatures, and awesome acts of God, considering that His Word is true and His creation is real. Sometimes stories are presented in a fast pace, not giving the reader a chance to either process the information or create a mental image of the story so it can impact learning and promote transformation. Often, the goal of reading a lot of information about the Bible, without giving the chance to analyze it, becomes more important than giving the Word of God time to renew the mind and mold the character, enabling the reader to be transformed into the likeness of Jesus.
