The reason for my post is that I want to bone up on my science fiction and dystopian tales. But the thing is, I want to concentrate on books that are classics of the genre. By that I do not mean old classics, but books that you recommend to everyone because they are so fucking good you just couldn't put them down. Books that you reread over and over and you know will never become dusty and covered in cobwebs on your shelves.
So far on my TBR list:
- Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams
- 1984 - George Orwell
- A Brave New World - Aldous Huxley
I will probably go back and read some of my favourites like Dune, The Host, War of The Worlds, Time Machine and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea as well.
Can you recommend any others for me to read? What are your favourite novels or authors of science fiction and/or dystopian tales? What novels are you constantly returning to? What books are on your TBR list? I would love to hear what you think!
