Top 16 Science Fiction Books of All Time
Need an escape from reality? There’s nothing better than diving straight into a science fiction book.
Science fiction may be a fun read, but it’s so much more than that. It challenges our world view and expands our reality. It also teaches us a thing or two about appreciating the here and now, without technology taking over.
But there are so many different science fiction books, and it can be overwhelming trying to choose which ones to read.
Thankfully, to help celebrate National Science Fiction Day on January 2, Global English Editing has chosen the top 16 science fiction books of all time.
Bonus—so many of these also have movies you can watch after reading!
The list starts out with Dune, a book that follows a family on another planet that has a life-preserving spice that everyone wants.
Then, the list ends with The Martian, a book about an astronaut stranded on Mars. It was made into a major motion picture, and both the book and movie are phenomenal.
With other great books, like Frankenstein and A Wrinkle in Time, you will have amazing books to choose from no matter what science fiction you like best.
Aliens, monsters, and time travel, you can’t go wrong with this list.
