You be the judge

I started reading "Brave New World", but I never finished more than firts few chapters before I had to return it to the library. "Colour of Magic", "I, Robot", "Stranger in a Strange Land" and "Illuminatus"-trilogy, are on my To-Do-list.

I will read anything by Adams and Pratchett as I consider them the cream of British comedic writer talent (aside from the fact that Adams is sadly no longer with us - read 'Salmon of Doubt' and weep). Gibson's 'Neuromancer' I studied and liked but I've yet to tackle Orwell, Huxley, Dick and Asimov. Shame, shame...
