Rant by Chuck Palahniuk

It's like reading Studs Terkel crossed with Nelson Algren and William S. Burroughs.

Just starting Les Fleurs du Mal, by Charles Baudelaire.

I've been told it's depressingly beautiful.

I just started 1984 which has always been on my "need to read before I die" list.

Does anyone have any other fictional novels about futuristic utopian societies? (Note: I've read Flowers for Algernon forever ago, and I have bought Farenheit 451 to read after I finish 1984.)
