Speaking of old novels you should (re)read…

img_2343Finally, I guess, everyone’s re-reading 1984. Good! I re-read it this past summer and did my part to advertise its application to modern day. Glad to see the appreciation of this classic dystopian novel alive and well again.

Here’s a list of other must-read classics (or re-reads) to put on your list after you finish 1984 and want to think about things some more through the lens of fiction…

  1. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
  2. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
  3. The Handmade’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
  4. We by Yevgeny Zamyatin
  5. Player Piano by Kurt Vonnegut
  6. Julius Caesar by Shakespeare
  7. Time Out of Joint by Philip K. Dick
  8. The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick
  9. The Running Man by Richard Bachman (Stephen King)
