Eyeless in Gaza
Unapologetically complex and "literary", this was more of a challenge than I expected having only previously read the comparatively lightweight Brave New World. There is a nonlinear narrative, lots of philosophical debate and a whole bunch of unsympathetic characters to cope with. The reward is serious meaty, downbeat novel, laced with some humour and some startlingly accurate predicitons. It's a shame more people weren't listening to Huxley in the 1930s.
