Science fiction books
- “The Martian”
- Simply-written and full of dry humor, this book is the perfect one for the non-reader. Its storyline is engaging and its main characters are very likable, making this book one that appeals to anyone, regardless of whether they love science or reading more.
- “Fahrenheit 451”
- This is a book about books, telling of a future in which all books are burned and a man who is supposed to be burning them but instead begins to keep them, committing crimes against an overly intrusive government. The writing is beautiful and the story follows a myriad of highs and lows as the reader is reminded of the power of both words and freedom.
- More dystopian than science fiction, this book tells of a dystopian future of government control and surveillance, following a man who rebels against this by writing and reading and essentially just having thoughts of his own. The novel is written in an incredibly sophisticated style, but tells a story that will continue to haunt readers with its warnings long after they put the book down.
