Susan Thursdays says:

Oh!!! Lucky you!! Libra’s are the Best!! ☮️ 😊

El Gato, The CatsEye says:

Only 2 books you must include when you expand this top 10 to top 12: A Canticle for Leibowitz and Lord of Light.

Mike Donovan says:

Isaac Asimov wrote in a simple way so that as many people as possible would understad him.

Rob Bentvelzen says:

Imo Dinosaurbeach by Keith Laumer should be there. Nice complex time travel novel

David Boivin says:

The only book not on your list that had a Top Ten effect on me was Joe Haldeman – Forever War.

I Love The 80's says:

I love The Mote in God's Eye. Niven is one of my favorite authors. I don't think it's aged all that badly, but it does have some examples of male chauvinism. The passage stating proper women don't use birth control really pissed me off. I almost stopped reading it at the point. I'm glad I didn't.

Kakashi Hatake says:

Nice list. I didn't however like Fahrenheit 451. The logical leap was missing in it which would explain the evolution of that society.

Richard Fedora says:

Just saw this video – great list:

The Mote in God's Eye – loved it;
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy – didn't like it (don't like sci-fi comedy much);
Foundation – loved it;
War of the Worlds – loved it;
Stranger In a Strange Land – loved it;
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep – loved it;
Fahrenheit 451 – didn't like it (great concept but don't like writing style);
Childhood's End – didn't love it but not bad;
Hyperion – not bad;
Dune – didn't love it – kind of slow;

ominollo says:

Great list! I joined your channel because of this video 😉

Duegrom1 says:

I love Dune, I'll also pick it up every few years, weirdly though I've never felt the urge to read any of the rest of the series

Selena Järv says:

Im pretty sure my dad has read all of theese books

Esperanza Espejo says:

What an interesting list !

Beelzebob the innocent says:

Never been called a nerd but I have read this list at least once some more like a dozen times

Sam Leno says:

"Stranger…" is in my top ten but not at the absolute top because of the ending.

Jorge Newton says:

Hyperion Is my favorite!!!!

Ian H says:

Niven and Pournelle made a fantastic team. Totally agree with you. Hitchhikers, yes! Asimov, yes! (Prefer the robots – Caves of Steel etc). HG Wells.. meh. Heinlein, yes! Time enough for love, Starship Troopers. Dick – yes! Bladerunner, okish – and with the great mini series – Man in the High Castle. Bradbury.. meh. Clarke, hell yes. Hyperion, hell yes. Dune – no other real contender. So many more writers have since delighted me – Peter F Hamilton probably the most. David Webber – Honor Harrington series, David Brin – Uplift series, William R. Forstchen – Lost Regiment series. Eric Flint, SM Stirling, CJ Cherrayh, John Ringo…. oh, so many brilliant writers, brilliant series. And now – The Expanse by by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby.

George Gonzalez-Rivas says:

Yeah, Dune is great. Ever since I read it 40 years ago I've never stopped loving it. HOWEVER…. the bloom came off the rose for me once I learned it was heavily, heavily (heavily!) based on Swords of Paradise. I won't say it's plagiarism, but it has a layer of SciFi and space travel over the same story including some of the same terms that Herbert supposedly 'invented'. It also explains the heavy dose of Islamic culture from the Fremen. Hope I didn't ruin your day with this.

Tessellating Tiger says:

I love "Red Planet" by Robert Heinlein.

D e x says:

Asimov, try the Elijah Baley/R. Daneel Olivaw Caves of Steel, The Naked Sun, and Robots of Dawn. Again, maybe too shallow. They are a prelude to the book Prelude to Foundation, which is the story of the development of Psychohistory.
H.G. Wells says Q is Roger Stone, and we can stop listening to his rubbish, the ass.
Heinlein, The cat who walked thru walls or I will fear no evil or, for those of us with no depth, Friday or the Number of the Beast. My only problems with Stranger in a Strange Land, if you got caught with it, you were Godless, and there is a long line of Jesus' persecution simile (Old man and the sea) look-a-likes. Still an excellent read. If you can gronk it.
Brave New world, yes. 451, "adults" said it was bullshit that could never be. I usually reply, go read the Color Of Purple and Uncle Tom's cabin.
Hyperion. Yes. The reason I knew what Hegemony was in Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow. And the sequel Fall was mud.

bastiat says:

"We" and "Roadside Picnic" are also awesome. Great list, thanks!

J Carter says:

What about the lyrical writing of Ray Bradbury–Martian Chronicles, Something Evil This Way Comes, etc

bill kitson says:

no need for bad language. Cancels out any interest the presenter expects of his viewers.

Mike Snyder says:

And 1974 was the year I began reading Science Fiction (as an adult)! One friend gave me a copy of "Dune" and another gave me a trilogy of Edgar Rice Burroughs' John Carter novels. My favorite author is, without a single doubt, is Theodore Sturgeon, a Grand Master of SF, and I highly recommend reading any of his amazing short stories! My favorite book is "I, Robot" by the inimitable Isaac Asimov! Regards, everyone!

Mountainwolf01 says:

I have been looking for a sci fi classic I read 40 years ago I do not remember the title but the main character is marooned in space from a nova bomb someone tried to kill him with. A alien that has made a asteroid his ship and has artifacts it has collected over centuries finds him. The alien dies and somehow he gets the aliens memories and can control the asteroid. If anyone knows the title of this book I would be your friend for life.

Alex K says:

Liked before even starting the video.

The Esperanza Compromise By Jason Daniel Baker says:

Solid choices on that list.

chris hooge says:

I don't know how I came across Hyperion. I think it was a recommend by a much older guy in a bookstore. "You like that? Try this." You know , back when we actually went to bookstores and talked to people. One of the few things that stick with me 30 years later is the priest/monk (don't crucify me. it's a 30 year old memory) who nails himself to a cross and dies, reanimates, dies…excrutiatingly. That shit is terrifying.

Stuart Gale says:

Shamefully catching up on videos I've missed. And adding a few books to the TBR.
