    1984

    A warning of a world dominated by 3 Stalinist-Nazi regimes. Has given the English language several new words - doublethink, the book title itself, the adjective Orwellian.

    [Influenced by Zamyatin's We]

    Animal Farm

    A history of the Russian Revolution and Stalinism, from the point of view of the put-upon farm animals, who end up unable to distinguish between the former masters (humans) and their new ones (the pigs).
