The Martian Chronicles. Fahrenheit 451.
The Silo series by Hugh Howey, Madaddam Trilogy by Margaret Atwood, any books by Isaac Azimov and Ray Bradbury.

Becky Chambers series beginning with A Long Way to a Small Angry Planet. The Expanse. Anything by Alistair Reynolds. You could pick up any of the Sci-Fi Masterworks series.
Spider Robinson’s Callahan Saloon series — “Librarians are the secret masters of the world. They control information. Don’t ever piss one off. ”
Brave New World by Huxley
Thanks for all the suggestions.
Spares, by Michael Marshall Smith. If you like grungy, near-future sci-fi with a little twist of horror thrown in.
Jeremy Robinson, the Modern Day Master of Science Fiction. If you enjoy the genre at all, he has *something* for you. 😀
Had fun reading ‘The Martian’

Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein
I’ve been recommending the hell out of Dark Matter by Blake Crouch. I really did love it.
This is the book I was going to suggest.
@Kristen I love books that make you think, or books that change your life.
Bear And The Nightingale. Amazing.
blakes seven , hitch-hikers guide to the galaxy [6 books ]
Battlefield Earth. I know Hubbard is mental but that book is a masterpiece. Ohh and Diary of a space tyrant.
Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
An oldie but goodie, Rendezvous with Rama,Arthur C. Clark?
The “Expanse” series.
Funny, I can’t read Sci-Fi at all. Maybe I will try again with a book someone mentions here.
The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury!
I am currently reading The Expanse Series by James S.A. Corey. Soooo good! Starts with Leviathan Wakes. I haven’t been able to put them down!
My favorite author: Scott Sigler ??
Anything by Sheri Tepper or Neal Stephenson. I also enjoyed the Brilliance trilogy by Marcus Sakey. They would make great movies.
The Three Body Problem
@Ryan ooh, on my TBR shelf..
@Yuki, I’ve read the first book so far. It was really good, and I’m anxious to see how it all plays out. Liu Cixin is brilliant.
I wish I remembered the name. About people going up to a comet to mine it’s precious metals. Return in 73 years for rendezvous. Alas.
Dune, Ender’s Game, The Martian Chronicles, the Binti trilogy, the Murderbot series, The Martian
The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell
Stranger in a Strange Land is the one that always come to mind, but really I love them all.
I’ve recently read the Murderbot novellas and liked them very much
Dark matter by Blake Crouch is a great book !
The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers. The Expanse Series. Saga (graphic novel). Lock In by Scalzi. Vurt by Jeff Noon. Armor by John Steakley. Transmetropolitan (graphic novel). MANY books by Alan Dean Foster (like 30 at least). Altered Carbon by Richard K Morgan. I could keep going but try those.
The Broken Earth series by N.K. Jemison.
@Brooke I second this, she is a brilliant writer
The Sparrow and its sequel Children of God.
Mrs. Perigrines peculiar children has stuck in my head. Also there is a book called shades of gray. Not the 50 shades one. where a new generation finds Parker brothers board games and thinks they are real maps and divides themselves into groups of color.
The Star Watchman by Ben Bova
The Circle, The Hunger Games trilogy.
Roadside Picnic, Anathem, Genesis
And, (sci-fi because time travel), To Say Nothing of the Dog is comic genius.
Forever War Haldeman
3748 A.D. The Return of the Cat (A Karl Sabers Space Knight Adventure Book 1) by Carl Kralich
