I've been hunting down fiction by Eastern European authors to try and load up the GM inspiration bank for a future RPG campaign I'm planning on running. While doing so, I stumbled on We, written in 1920 by an expatriate Russian living in England and clearly inspired why what he saw going down in his native land. It was apparently a favorite of George Orwell and I can see the lineage there. It's a little hard to follow since none of the characters have what we would call names. They are numbered. It's pretty good. Not 1984 good, but I'm glad I found it.

Thanks for the pointers! I've read the entire Witcher series and really enjoyed it. I also went from video games to books and was retroactively impressed with how well the games got the characters and world right even while they tackle completely different stories.
I've played the Metro games and want to listen to those books but I cannot currently get audio versions (in a language I understand) from my state's library. Similar for the Night Watch series except it's I've seen the movie and want to listen to the books.
I've never heard of Road Side Picnic so I will immediately start hunting for that since your other recommendations are so on point! <grin> EDIT: Ah, it looks like Roadside Picnic is by a pair of authors I have had recommended to me from a couple other sources I trust. So even more reason to hunt this down.
