    Which dystopian science fiction novels do you recommend the most?

    In addition to Brave New World and 1984 I thought We, Fahrenheit 451 and The World Inside were good.

    Any feminists out there? I doubt it *grins* But just in case, I recommend Thinner Than Thou. It's a dystopian novel where thinness is the new religion and the entire society worships thin, young people. So the only place for fat people are these fucked up fat camps run by an evangelist and strip clubs where fat people strip and eat while people throw food at them and get off. So weird, but good.
