Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury A very good depiction of the awakening of a man in a degenerate and intellectually stagnant society. A dystopia that arose, not from totalitarian despots seizing power, but from democracy, the tyranny of the majority.

Somewhat heavy handed at times although Bradbury's style really suited the story in my opinion and brought it to life. Definitely deserves it's place alongside 1984 and Brave New World in warning us of potential dangers in our future and is disturbingly prophetic at times.
