Some really good recommendations in this thread.

I will add catch 22, animal farm(good and short...), and mothernight. Dont really fit as sci fi, but books i highly recommend.

This is the list I saw it in.

It's #5 out of top 100 sci fi books.

I'm surprised Carl Sagan has only one book in a top 100 sci fi novel list. Contact is a great movie, and the novel of a movie is usually 10 times better. I should get that book too.

Man I gotta get a lot of books.

Examples abound of science fiction with a political message. In fact more serious sci fi has a political message than doesn't.

Sagan was a scientist first and a novelist second. Most of his books are non-fiction.

I don't recommend it - for a start there is no coherent story. I mean Genesis and Exodus at least attempt a sense of continuity but then it descends into lists of people, rules and regs, and nonsensical side plots that don't go anywhere. As a single narrative it's an absolute bloody mess.

Only meant to illustrate that I'm not much of a sci fi fan really. I suppose I couldve been more clear.
