Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell

For more unique dystopian visions of the future, try these…

A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess for a violent future Britain where the establishment seeks order by reforming dangerous youth.

Little Brother by Cory Doctorow for a 1984-inspired YA thriller set in the near future that explores the dystopian effect of post 9/11 policy.

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel for a literary love letter to humanity after a flu pandemic wipes out 99% of the population.

The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell for a genre-busting epic that starts in 1984 and ends in 2043.
