My favorite novel. So there.

I mentioned Robert A. Heinlein's Starship Troopers in a response to a post just now, and felt the need, as I always do nowadays, to add the disclaimer, "Not to be confused with the abominable movie."

This at last triggered in me sufficient morbid fascination to check the IMDb listing for said flick.

On the trivia page, I found the following:
"Paul Verhoeven admits to never finishing the novel, claiming he read through the first few chapters and becoming both bored and depressed."

That explains much. Wonder what Edward Neumeier's excuse is?

...oh gods. They're making a sequel.
