Here's a list I found for people who liked 1984.

Have you read Angels & Demons or The Da Vinci Code: A Novel (Robert Langdon)? I've also heard that Steve Berry and Brad Meltzer write similar types of books.

You say you've read 1984 and Brave New World, which are generally regarded as classics, yet you seem to lump them in with some of the silliests, most pretentious pot boilers of recent years.

Sounds to me like the reader is looking for conspiracy/end of world stories whether they be classics or new stories. One isn't necessarily better than the other. I dont know if pretentious is the correct description, maybe it's a better description of some readers.

The elephant in the room, IMO, is that the OP appears to be plugging a self-published book rather than actually seeking input. Again, JMO.

(Based on seeing similar scenarios ad nauseam for a couple of years.)

Is it a book about elephants?

Ha ha!

Yes, that's exactly what I meant. I can't disclose the title, though, or I'd have to-- **makes slicing motion across throat**

Well, yes, some books are better than others. I seriously doubt that Angels&Demons or DaVinci Code wil enjoy the kind of lasting literary acclaim given to 1984 and BNW.

I hadn't noticed that before. The OP has a totally blank profile too.
?sock puppet?

I'm not saying that it is. It just has the feel. You know, the mention of an obscure SP book (uploaded just a couple weeks ago) alongside classic favorites. It's been done before. It's a way some authors think is *clever* to get their book titles out there.

I suspect the fairly heavy downvoting of the OP indicates that some other people may also get that feel from it.

It was about (maybe) a week ago that I saw this same exact thread in a different forum. Identical, word for word.
I can't remember which forum it was in but no one posted a reply & the thread soon fell out of sight.

And here it is again. Hmmm

Interesting, Lil Devil. The whole word-for-word thing is kind of a tip-off - at least for me. It's as though the post is more like ad copy.

How many of us cut and paste some prewritten blurb when asking for reading recs? I would say, probably not too many *readers* do this.

You read books about the "illuminati", but you accuse US of liking conspiracies?
Just go away.

uh . . . okay . . . nice . . . amazon forum: not for me, or any decent people, obviously . . .

And another fat little lamb is torn to pieces by the harpies , never to be heard from again.
Meanwhile, intelligent, KBF-appropriate conversations about what people like to drink while they read are doing well.

Thank you, Chris, for trying to get this discussion back on track. Now run and hide, before W.Holt decides to eat you.
