Wait, do they seriously offer The Handmaid's Tale in that list? Hey go for it!
Especially if you've already read 6 of the novels!
(I have personnaly read Vingt mille lieues sous les mers, Brave New World and Nineteen Eighty-Four - as classical, must-read litterature).
That is funny - I never sought the original name of "Brave new world" - in French is it "Le meilleur des mondes" (The best of the worlds litteraly) - I think this is quite different and gives a different feeling to the book...
For example in French the title implies great irony - as this kind of world is far from being the best because it kinds of regulates human lives just on one way...
You may also like in this same category "Et on tuera tous les affreux" by Boris Vian (I dunno if there has been an English translation?) which is by far my favourite novel from Boris Vian - in this novel, they create a "higher quality" group of humans, choosing genetically "handsome people" to reproduce together... And in the end "supposedly" handsome people cannot bear beauty anymore and crave for ugliness
I love it!
This is so fine! Makes me wanderlust to go back to University! but not for the French part - for the English part maybe (I also thought that when I started to read Oliver Twist in olde English)

Not proud to say but that'd be one of my novels - in book #8 I wrote 3 hot lesbian scenes But does that count as obscenities? There's no rude word or anything... Just sex
The last thing you read featuring lesbians.
