Very fine choices. Ms. Austen is so good... under-appreciated, I think.

I've read the first three and agree they are all fantastic.

The Lovely Bones, while more modern than the first three, is quite well written and definitely inspires some serious though on the afterlife. Do NOT watch the movie though. Ugh. Disgrace.

I saw the movie for 1984, and read Brave New World.

The book is waaaay better.

I've read the Orwell and Bradbury, both great. You might also enjoy Brave New World by Aldous Huxley or We by Yevgeny Zamyatin. Zamyatin's book partly inspired 1984.
