Prey by Michael Crichton

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury scared me silly when I first read it as a teenager when first published. It's about a special firemen force that tracks down anyone with books which they then burn. Terrifying to think what would we do without printed matter ! Brave New World by Aldous Huxley is also a futuristic book written in the 60's about selection of humans from babies to alphas or betas etc in a new world. Creepy !

Ready Player One is hands down the best Sci-Fi Book I've read this decade!!!

Asimov put out a a few collections of a sci-fi short stories. They're a good place to start if you want to begin with something small. One of his stories was about the human race coming into contact with a race of aliens who communicate via smell, and the humans had to use dogs as interpreters. Very trippy but also heartwarming and funny.

Etiquette &Espionage; and The Lunar Chronicles. though theyre not classics, there amazing

I used to read sci-fi as a kid and I love it so I'm very grateful for these recommendations. Thanks Holly

Interesting reads thanks

Oh and Double Identity

Ray Bradbury will always be the king. His prose sounds like poetry and the images in his stories are incredibly beautiful. Beryl, if you loved Fahrenheit try to get one of his books with short stories, you are going to love them.
