Karel Capek - War with the Newts

Considered as SF at the time written (1936), but it's actually a satiric novel, criticism of mankind, political parties, capitalism, national-socialism etc. I enjoyed.

Jules Verne "The Light at the end of the world" - just a funny coincidence, or an inspiration or something similar (sorry if this question already was asked once)?

"Once a jolly hangman" - biography of Darshan Singh who hanged about 1000 people during his more than 50 year career in Singapore. It contains some interesting thoughts about the death penalty, hard born criminals, justice system of Singapore, etc. :)

Last one was George Orwell's "Down and Out In Paris and London" (I've now read it about a dozen times over the years!). Currently re-reading Philip K Dick's "Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said". They just don't write them like they used to, I suppose! Before those two, Victoria Hislop's "The Thread", whose writing style is actually very engaging and emotional. Not the sort of thing I usually tend to read, but shit, that woman is GOOD!
