"When the Moon Ran Wild" by Ray Bradbury.
because it introduced me to science fiction.
Psycho-Pass, since it's relevant to my personal life.
Written by Gen Urobuchi, set in a future where it is possible to instantaneously measure a person's mental state, personality, and the probability that a person will commit crimes, all through a device installed on each citizen's body called a Psycho-Pass. When this probability, measured by the "Crime Coefficient" index, is too high in an individual, they are pursued and apprehended—with lethal force, if necessary.
The main antagonist is a serial killer who can control his "Crime Coefficient" to nearly zero even when he's assaulting people. He resembles a sociopathic friend of mine... That's why I said it's more of a personal reason. objectively speaking, the story is quite engaging, especially if you enjoy visual novel / anime.
Ahh, right. Instead of 3 psychic 'precogs' Psycho-Pass have Sybil System, which is consisted of the whole citizens' brains, integrated. Sybil System doesn't predict exact future, only calculating one's psychological stability in a way that a woman who went hysterical after almost getting raped is considered more dangerous than a calm, serene sociopath. Just like in real life, isn't it. Human mind is not always a good judge.
