    I do not have time to look through 221 pages of links, but from the first page, 1984 is a very good book, and also check out "Animal Farm" by the same author, it shows how communism can go wrong.

    I don't know if Ray Bradbury or Phillip K Dick are on that list, but they are 2 of my favorite authors.

    Check out, "Martian Chronicles", and "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" (the movie Blade Runner was based on that novel)

    edit: after reading the replies, I second these recommendations, as I enjoyed these books:

    Alice in Wonderland New Edition - Lewis Carrol

    Diary Of A Young Girl New Edition - Anne Frank

    Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card

    Frankenstein New Edition - Mary Shelley

    yeah I agree with everyone, 1984 definitely!! I'm actually doing that in school right now. it's a really great book

    that Charles Dickens - A christmas carol must be really good! I know the story, havent read the book :P I've read Oliver Twist though and I love the atmosphere Charles Dickens can create in his books.

    Tale of two cities... i've heard its really good. so i would recommend to go for a charles dickens book too definitely :)

    Alexander the Great seems interesting....and then you could join in in the debate: was alexander the great greek or not?

    lol

    An Ideal Husband- Oscar Wilde. Havent read and havent even heard about it but anything by Oscar Wilde is ace!!

    I would recommned The Picture of Dorian Gray (dont know if it was in the list or not...). That book is one of my favourites! when i was reading it, I was actually writing down quotes. but i guess you could do that with every Oscar Wilde book.

    1- 1984!! Smochy,1984!! Read it about six months ago and I absolutely loved it! It's pretty depressing near the end but still, an AWESOME read.

    2- A Tale of two cities is pretty good too if you haven't read it yet.

    3- Anna Karenina isn't bad at all either.

    4- Dan Brown's new novel is coming out on the 15th of this month, so if you've read The DaVinci Code and/or Angels and Demons, you should get it. It's called The Lost Symbol I think.(Not on the website)
