Stranger in a Strange Land is considered a top science-fiction nowel by many, for good reason. This is one of the most imaginative books I've read in a very long time, in terms of both plot and perspective. The story revolves around a man named Michael who was raised on Mars and has come to Earth for the first time. As you learn about him and see his reactions to human society, you can gain a better appreciation of the preconceptions and prejudices we live with in real life. The book is full of intelligent conversations and ideas but manages to stay compelling and easy to read. It isn't as straightforward a story as it may sound, however, as there are some unusual twists in the latter half. This novel can open your mind if you let it, something I consider a hallmark of a classic.
