Thinking person's fiction

A Listmania! list by AGC2070 (Ashford, Kent, UK)
 
Brave New World
1.  Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
The list author says:
  "Older than 1984 but just as thought provoking. The choice between a sterile future of cloning and conditioning or a return to savagery and freedom? Contains some clever wordplay too."

To The Lighthouse (Oxford World's Classics)
2.  To The Lighthouse (Oxford World's Classics) by Virginia Woolf
The list author says:
  "Brings into focus the chains of thought and mental imagery we use every day. Finds enormous depth in familiar situations. (Inspired by Godrevy lighthouse, Cornwall)"

The Picture of Dorian Gray (Collector's Library)
3.  The Picture of Dorian Gray (Collector's Library) by Peter Harness
The list author says:
  "Controversial in its day. Dares to weigh up the pros and cons of indulgence. Full of quotations you already knew. Mr Wilde's darkest work, with a great twist in the final paragraph."
£6.39   Used & New from: £1.85
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time
4.  The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon
The list author says:
  "Certainly not a book for children due to frequent strong language. Some mind-bending maths and philosophies woven around a 15-year-old's quest for truth. Questions everyday perceptions and reasoning."
£3.85   Used & New from: £0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,510 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Nineteen Eighty-Four
5.  Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell
The list author says:
  "Has contributed the names for two TV programmes and is part of the school curriculum. Perhaps a prophecy for how our thoughts may be manipulated today."
Used & New from: £0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (806 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions

Seven Dreams of Reality
6.  Seven Dreams of Reality by Adam Colton
The list author says:
  "A machine record dreams, a spirit gives a child depression, a singer hypnotises his audience and life evolves without humans. 7 surreal short stories with twists that will provoke deeper thoughts."
Used & New from: £7.19
