    1. Lots of good stuff in this one. Within the book are some really easy-to-read commentaries on all of the most famous utopias and dystopias: Yevgeny Zamyatin's 'We,' Orwell's '1984,' Skinner's 'Walden Two,' Bradbury's 'Fahrenheit 451,' and Huxley's 'Brave New World.' Within each commentary you'll discover the influences for every novel along with the historical context. This is essential reading for the 'Dystopia-Utopia-Obsessed' crowd. Very likely you can find the PDF version online for free.
