The "Silo" trilogy (sometimes called the Wool trilogy) by Hugh Howey. Hard to describe them in a manner that wouldn't be better discovered by reading the books Smile

For non fiction, the following three are quite good and are on my permanent bookshelf;

                      


Stanley Karnow, Vietnam - A History - Quite a long read at 700+ pages, but a thoroughly in depth read that not only covers the Vietnam War, but the colonial period as well. If you have any interest in learning more about the Vietnam War then I can't recommend this enough.

Blake J. Harris, Console Wars - Fascinating book, focused about the time Tom Kalinske was at Sega of America, he was involved heavily in the development of Sonic the Hedgehog and Sega's brief dominance in the console market in the early 90s.

Simon Reynolds, Totally Wired: Post Punk Interviews and Overviews - Not so much a book as a collection of interviews and essays, but for anyone (like me!) who likes the Post Punk era of the 70s and 80s it's a fascinating read. Interview include John Peel, and Edwyn Collins of Orange Juice, along with sections on Joy Division, Sioux and the Banshees and more.

He also wrote another book called Rip it up and Start again, which is more of an overview but still an interesting read.
