1984 and Brave New World are intresting books.

Parecon - by Michael Albert. Not fictional at all - more of a description of an alternative economic vision.

if you wanted something more along the ficticious but philosophical, I'd recommend "Island" by Aldous Huxley. Brave New World is also by him, but very over-rated... Huxley himself has written an essay called "Brave New World Revisted" where he express his dismay that Brave New World became his famous book, saying that he wrote it before he fully understood life and all that - and that Island is the work of his that he wished would have been synonymous with his name.

I liked Fast Food Nation..

Its a real eye opener as too just how fucked up corporate America is and how McDonnalds is destroying the worlds health..

The book makes a great argument for them lawsuits against the fast food companies for obesity. Everyone knows that eating burgers and fries will make you fat but not many people know the several dozens of chemicals made round the world that cause serious health risks that go into EVERYTHING on the McDonnalds menu.

Both books are ficticious. www.online-literature.com has both books 1984 by george orwell and brave new world by adous huxley. The connections you can make with those books and present day is scary.

thanks folks, going to read 1984 next, this is to the disbelief of my partner who doesnt like my sudden interest of books.

when younger i hated the idea of reading unless it was education/work related and basically had to be done.
