The Forever War by Joe Haldeman:
Brilliant sci-fi. Follows a man fighting in an intergalactic war. Relativity means that for every month on duty years go by on earth. Every time he goes back to earth and every time he meets people from earth he feels more and more distant from the planet he is fighting for. Hooked me pretty much from the beginning and didn't let go.

The Stars My Destination by Alfred Bester:
Cant really explain what this one is about as it is bonkers and fast paced. Set in the future, in a time wherein men have evolved to be able to teleport. It's like The Count Of Monte Christo meets Mad Max in space. Doesn't have the same message and social mirror facet that Forever War has but still really good.

Green Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson.

Good continuation of the epic trilogy starter Red Mars. New characters, new developments on the red planet. Some really good sci-fi social commentary stuff. Very excited to read Blue Mars.

The Wasp Factory by Iain Banks

Good, quick read. Good exploration of the pubescent mind. Don't know exactly how to feel about the ending though.
