This book is a great read. I encourage all of you to pick it up. It discusses politics, punishment, voting, responsibility, and is entertaining for the action/adventure alone.
It is nothing like the movie. Actually imagine your favorite book, then take all the awesome out. Thats how they made the movie.

If you've ever read it you know what I mean. If you haven't it only takes a day or two because it is so short.
Heinlein is a very prolific writter and I'd recomend his other books. I've read Space Cadets, Double Star, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, and several others I can't remember right now. Most are short and quick. Suprisingly good.
Discuss amongst yourselves.
