Anyone? Not just any book though, something like 1984, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's nest, Brand New World, Animal Farm, etc... I cant seem to find anymore books like these.

Fear and loathing in las vegas is 100% amazing awesomeness. in word form. its like "drugs drugs drugs knife crazy story drugs drugs airport"

The Traveler by John Twelve Hawks is a pretty good sci fi thriller. somewhat similar to 1984.

Read more Orwell... Homage To Catalonia, Down and Out in Paris & London, The Road To Wigan Pier..

So much better than 1984 and Animal Farm.

Its actually really hard to find anymore Orwell in the book stores around here, they only have Animal Farm and 1984.

Black Boy by Richard Wright is really good. Stuff by H.G. Wells an ray bradburry (might be spelling that wrong)

Rant by Chuck Palahniuk (sp?). The Fight Club guy. Really good book, but it's in the style of an oral biography so it takes a minute to get used to.

I love metal but death metal's just a bit too much for me. The most I can get into is serious-illness metal.

On The Road - Jack Kerouac.

Just look in the Classics section at your local bookstore.

Crank and Impulse by Ellen Hopkins.

They're both written in a sort of poetic style, but don't let that stop you. Crank is about the author's daughter's drug use, and Impulse is the story of three teens in a mental assylum.
We're all in the gutter.

(But some of us are looking at the stars.)

what is this 1984 book about?

a dude who lives in a totalitarian society, where everything you do and say is always monitored by the government. if anything you do or say could be perceived as even the slightest dissatisfaction of your life, you're torured and killed. it's pretty good.

Fahrenheit 451, Brave New World, Candide (personal favorite), Lord of the Flies (didn't like the writing style very much but you can give it s shot), The Giver, The Last Book in the Universe

also, it's not that style, but Cadillac Beach is a great book. it's a comedy/mystery/action/politics book.
it's pretty politically incorrect, but people like my uber-conservative parents would hate it too.
