As a follow up to Glenn's post below, what would be your best SciFi book ?

To me it is a hard choice, there are so many, but here a few that are important to me:
- The Ice People by Barjavel, that I read when I was 8, and that probably gave me the taste for sciFi
- I, Robot, that got me into robotics, computer science, logical thinking, ...
- Another small book I cannot remember the name, talking about astronauts trapped in a spaceship (kind of Apollo 13) that my English teacher gave me and that was the first book I have read in English language.
- A brave new world, because of that dystopian but maybe not so wrong description of our future.
- Ubik, because ... Ubik.
- Jurassic Parc, not because of the story, but for the chaos theory developed over 40 pages by Crichton. The movie was awesome in its time, but the book is on another level - I know it is cliché to say the book is better than the movie. Same for Terminator, the book/screenplay explains so much better the overall atmosphere, the character of Sarah Connor, and helps understanding a few shortcuts that were hard to follow in the movie.
