Thinking person's fiction

AGC2070
 
Brave New World
Brave New World
"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)
To The Lighthouse (Oxford World's Classics)
"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)
The Picture of Dorian Gray (Collector's Library)
"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."
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time
"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."
Nineteen Eighty-Four
Nineteen Eighty-Four
"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."
Seven Dreams of Reality
Seven Dreams of Reality
"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."
