1984 was a fantastic book! dystopia society falsely shown as a utopia...if you liked 1984 you'll probably like a brave new world.

it's a fantastic book after you read that you should check out the movie Equilibrium its not based of that book so you won't be disappointed when you see it but it is about a dystopia, drug, and ultimate control by big brother.

I loved 1984, one of the first "real" book I read.

Farenheit 451 raises a question for me. If I had to, what book would I memorize?

Animal Farm by Orwell is also very well-written and captivating, I suggest it if you haven ot already read it.
Of course, since I'm suggesting things anyway.

Go read yourself some Vonnegut.
(I love literature.)

Oh, yeah. When I say first real book, I do mean as in adult/young adult.

I can remember being, I think I was twelve and picking up 1984. I firmly believe that it was the thing that shaped some ideas and gave me an opinionated, passionate mind.

Animal Farm was brilliant it was the first "adult" book I read. I think I read it in the 6th grade, my sister was making me do her book report for her...it the book that made start to look for something greater then what was in front of me.

Of course Catcher... J.D. Salinger recently died, too. Have you read Franny and Zooey by him? Good stuff.

When you say The Stranger, do you mean Stranger in a Strange Land? I've never heard of The Stranger.

Catcher is brilliant. I fell for my ex-boyfriend because he made reeferences to it all the time...

A Clockwork Orange, I think, is great.

And, of course, Catch-22.

Things fall apart is a tale about a tribe that falls apart after christian missionaries come into their society.

and As I lay dying is a novel about a family couping with their mother dying. It's written interestingly; Instead of each character getting quoted words to reveal their thoughts they get chapters. Not always long chapter either my favorite chapter was one sentence long "My mother's a fish"
