1. George Orwell - 1984

2. George Orwell - Animal Farm

3. Jung Chang - Wild Swans

4. Aldous Huxley - Brave New World.

5. Margaret Atwood - The Handmaid's Tale.

 

I picked these because they're all warnings about what can happen when extreme ideology takes over.  |Very relevant today what with jihadis, the extreme left and the extreme right.

My mixed bag on the nonce, mostly fiction, in no particular order:

  • The Pickwick Papers (Dickens)
  • Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Twain)
  • The Mill on the Floss (Eliot)
  • The Crooked Timber of Humanity (Berlin)
  • Right Ho, Jeeves (Wodehouse)
