Sci-fi suggestions - November 23rd 2016, 08:56 PM

I am currently doing the th book club and one month next year I wanted to do a Sci-fi pick. Thing is I don't read Sci-fi so I only have a total of four books. That's a decent amount but if there are any Sci-fi books you all could think of that would be great.

The books I have are:

Childhood's end by Arthur C. Clark
Enders game
Red mars

Thanks in advance

The Tomorrow Code by Brian L. Falkner is pretty high on my list. It's technically listed as "speculative fiction" but has time travel.

One of the more recent sci fi books I've read was Earth Girl by Janet Edwards. It's part of a series but having only read the first book I can only vouch for that, but I enjoyed it a lot (and a lot more than I expected to). There's also Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein, although that's a fair bit more mature and may not be suitable for all audiences.

Maybe something by Margaret Atwood? Her work is speculative fiction but the Handmaid's Tale won a science fiction prize, and most of her work is dystopian, or set in alternative worlds etc

I am inimitable, I am an original
