1. Stand on Zanzibar by John Brunner *

Classic SF story from the 60s. Unlike many older stories, this one seems to have aged pretty well. Brunner puts together an interesting world (set in 2010) complete with an energy crisis (cars are a thing of the past), domestic terrorists (aka Muckers), super computers, and eugenic laws. The story mostly follows two roommates but is inner mixed with snippets of stories from other characters, broadcast announcements, and all sorts of stuff. The reader for the audio version did a great job keeping it flowing and understandable.

As part of my 12 in 12 Challenge, 12 of the books I'm going to try and read this year are to come from recommendations. If you've got some time to kill and enjoy digging though someone else's book collection, follow the below link and pick a bunch of books that you think I should read this year ("You've not yet read X?! You've got to read it!") If you've got some favorites that I've never read and don't own, feel free to suggest a few of them as well.
