Poll #285076 distopian books

Have you read...?

Brave New World
Fahrenheit 451
The Giver

I like seeing how things break down, especially if I'm not under them. I've been a fan of these since I was little. I'm curious which are getting read, these days. Feel free to suggest others in comments. :)

Try Earth Abides by George R. Stewart or Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank - they're more apocalyptic than dystopian per se, but I remember reading all of those books at around the same time back when I, too, was little. (Okay, I'm almost six feet tall, so I'm not sure I was ever strictly "little" but you know what I mean...)

Ahab's Wife, Memoirs of a Geisha, Poisonwood Bible. All very lovely books. Ahab's Wife is probably my favorite, simply because of the philosophies presented in it.

A Clockwork Orange, Naked Lunch, Lord of the Flies, Animal Farm, etc...

I loved all of those books. I can't think of the titles, but I've read others like them too. All of them I had to read in an English class at some point or another, but most of the time I had already read the book years before it was assigned. It was great; all I had to do was flip through it again, and then I could continue on with whatever I was currently reading on my own.
