7 Classic Science Fiction Books Worth Revisiting
Science Fiction stories delve into all things futuristic, technological, extraterrestrial — you catch our drift. Pivotal authors in the space include Isaac Asimov, George Orwell, Philip K. Dick, N. K. Jemisin, and countless others.
In celebration of both Asimov, his peers, and the entire genre, we’ve put together a collection of sci-fi books that are always worth rereading (or reading for the first time if you’re just getting into these magical worlds of tomorrow). From fun and fascinating intergalactic travels to dystopian futures that will leave you with much to think about, these sci-fi tales are fundamental to the genre.
Foundation Series – Isaac Asimov
The Foundation series began as a few short stories published in the magazine Astounding Stories of Super-Science back in the 1940s and ultimately became an entire series of seven epic books. The tale is set in the distant future where a man named Hari Seldon has invented “psychohistory,” a mathematical means of predicting the future.
Unfortunately, its predictions aren’t very flattering: They foretell a time when humanity will more or less revert back to the Dark Ages. These predictions get Seldon and his crew exiled to a distant planet known as “the Foundation,” where they attempt to shorten the period of decline to come. Apple TV+ also turned the series into a TV show and released the first season in 2021.
Dune – Frank Herbert
As fans of the 2021 Dune film may know, the story is based on the 1960s book by Frank Herbert and its sequels. Dune eventually became a bit like a literary version of Star Wars, as Herbert wrote six novels in the Dune series before he passed away. Later, his son Brian and author Kevin J. Anderson teamed up to produce numerous sequels and spinoffs based on the Dune -iverse.
The saga is set in a future where noble families rule different planets under a sort of intergalactic feudal system. In the first of the six foundational novels, readers are introduced to the heir of one such distinguished group, a boy named Paul Atreides whose family is charged with ruling a planet called Arrakis. When his family is betrayed, Paul embarks on a journey that blends everything from adventure to mysticism in one of the most epic sci-fi tales of all time.
The Left Hand of Darkness – Ursula K. Le Guin
While some earlier sci-fi classics tend to reflect women in the light of the times in which they were written, The Left Hand of Darkness is a whole other experience altogether. The 1969 novel follows the adventures of Genly Ai, an envoy who is sent to a stray world called Winter in an attempt to bring it back into the intergalactic fold.
However, to stand a chance, he must overcome his own preconceptions when he’s confronted with a culture that exists entirely without gender prejudice. As Ai soon discovers, some of the creatures on Winter express multiple genders, while others don’t identify with any at all. If you’re a reader who loves to go deep, this one makes for a fascinating read.
Nineteen Eighty-Four – George Orwell
While the actual 1984 may have come and gone, the dystopian novel that shares its name remains a pivotal work of science fiction. The Atlantic notes that “No novel of the past century has had more influence than George Orwell’s 1984 ,” and this assessment is indeed a fair one. Published in 1949, the story follows Winston Smith, who lives under a totalitarian government in which “the Party” controls every aspect of its citizens’ lives.
“Big Brother,” an invisible yet omnipresent leader, is always surveilling the populace to ensure that no one commits so much as a thoughtcrime, which involves no more than thinking of rebelling against the Party. When Smith dares to think for himself, he sets off on a haunting journey that transports readers to a world that’s all too easy to imagine actually existing. While this isn’t necessarily an easy read, it’s an important one that will stay with you for years.
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? – Philip K. Dick
Though you may not think you’ve heard of this one, it may be a bit more familiar than you think — it’s the inspiration behind Ridley Scott’s film, Blade Runner (1982). First published in 1968, the novel takes place in a dystopian 2021 where entire species have been eliminated by a global war. In an effort to replace live animals, which are highly prized, series of incredibly realistic androids have been developed, some of which are even fashioned after human beings.
However, when the government becomes wary of these AI humans and their disturbing capabilities, it eventually bans them from Earth. Bounty hunter Rick Deckard is sent to “retire” any rogue androids that remain, which doesn’t prove to be an easy task.
Kindred – Octavia E. Butler
Kindred has become a foundational work of sci-fi and African-American literature alike. The story follows a modern young Black woman named Dana who is suddenly deposited back in time to the pre-Civil War South. Through a series of trips between that era and her own time, Dana is forced to contend with the horrors of slavery, racism and sexism while completing a series of tasks.
Though each journey becomes more dangerous, Dana realizes that her own family’s future depends on their successful completion. First published in 1979, the novel remains relevant today with its skillful blend of romance, sci-fi, feminism, equality and adventure.
A Wrinkle in Time – Madeleine L’Engle
A Wrinkle in Time is a classic story of good vs. evil presented through an adventurous sci-fi lens. The tale follows a high school student named Meg Murray, her friend Calvin O’Keefe and her younger brother Charles Wallace. When the three are introduced to tesseracts (or wrinkles in time) by an unearthly visitor, they set off on a journey through time and space to rescue Meg’s missing scientist father.
Along the way, she learns a series of timeless life lessons about everything from the power of individuality to the resiliency of love. Appropriate for both young and adult readers alike, this one is a fun and fascinating tale that seems impossible to outgrow.

Best Books Under ₹100 🇮🇳 You Shouldn’t Miss Reading! 📚
If you are a bookworm – you are well-acquainted with the woes of being too broke to buy books. I remember my days as a teen bookworm who relied solely on her library subscription to get new books – and I had to wait for a full week to get a book! Getting cheap books under 100 INR was a dream – which has finally come true. In this article, I am compiling a list of books that are priced under 100 on major online shopping websites like Amazon and Flipkart.
Table of Contents
Best Books Under 100 Rupees on Amazon!
Apart from being light on your pocket – these books will also be great if you are a reader with varied reading tastes. I’ll also suggest alternate reading recommendations – so let’s get started on making a huge TBR pile for you!
Kind Note: All these are under 100 INR, we are sure it won’t go above that price range, but if that happens, we’ll help you with another book edition on Amazon or other platforms. We will update this list with more books as we keep tracking the price range of certain books.
Recommended Reading For You! 📖 📚
1. The Blue Umbrella by Ruskin Bond
The simple charms of village life are well put in this story written by one of India’s most prominent fiction writers. We have all come across Ruskin Bond ‘s short stories in school – so it is unlikely that you are unfamiliar with his name. The story follows the life of little Binya, who acquires a blue umbrella on an eventful day. Following this, the blue umbrella becomes the object of desire for every villager – and Binya, their opponent. While some of them are playful about their yearning to possess the blue umbrella – a symbolic representation in my interpretation – others go a bit too far to get it from her. You can get the book here! 📖
The charm of the silk blue umbrella is described as:
“The umbrella was like a flower, a great blue flower that had sprung up on the dry brown hillside.”
The end of this story is satisfying, heart-warming, and to some extent- reassuring of all the beauty that remains in the world.
Alternate Recommendation: You might enjoy Ruskin Bond’s The Room on The Roof – his first work of fiction novel – written when he was barely 17!
2. Short Stories of Rabindranath Tagore by Rabindranath Tagore
Maple Press has a big collection of short story compilations available at a very nominal price. Whenever I want to buy good books at an affordable rate – I look for their books on Amazon. This collection has some of the best stories from the man who wrote the song that makes you stand up before you can watch a movie in theatres.
This collection has a dozen from some of his best and most popular short stories like “The House of Cards”, “The Hungry Stones”, “The Postmaster,” and “The Kabuli Wala”. Tagore’s short stories tug on the emotions that you keep buried inside yourself and take you to a world of its own. His masterful characterization allows you to be aligned with the protagonists of his story – often helping you go through a cathartic experience. You can get the book here! 📖
Alternate Recommendation: From Maple Press itself, you can get a copy of Jules Verne’s short story collection which is perfect for science or science fiction lovers!
3. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
The Little Prince is my comfort read – and the magic of this novella is in the capability it has to transform your life each time it touches it. The depiction of ideas and the competent use of symbols to illustrate concepts – all designed carefully within a strange tale of coming across a peculiar little boy who claims to be from a different planet is sheer brilliance. You can get the book here! 📖
The Little Prince houses one of my favorites messages of literature:
“…What does that mean — tame?”
“It is an act too often neglected,” said the fox. “It means to establish ties.”
“To establish ties?”
“Just that,” said the fox. “To me, you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world….”
Alternate Recommendation: This book is too unique to have any alternate recommendation.
4. The Story of My Life by Helen Keller
I’m certain you’re aware of Helen Keller and her story – but her autobiography is a lovely read in itself. Dealing with challenges of the inability to see – and the determination to overcome obstacles with the sole ingredient unique to all successful people: willpower. The impressive thing about Keller is her undying intent towards learning and education – a very positive spirit that I find unmatchable. You can get the book here! 📖
She shares a deep love for reading, as she notes:
“Literature is my Utopia. Here I am not disenfranchised. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet, gracious discourses of my book friends. They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness.”
Her language and tone make her relatable and likable – a very important factor in making this book so enchanting.
Alternate Recommendation: Becoming by Michelle Obama is yet another motivating piece of an autobiography I have read lately.
5. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Yet another all-time favorite of mine – The Great Gatsby is a tale of love, money, social status, and what does it really mean to be great? I am sure that once you read this novel – you will spend the remainder of your life pondering over the questions it poses. Is it worth it? Absolutely! Gatsby and his love for Daisy – or rather everything that she embodies – are phenomenal and stay with you for a lifetime. However- the shine of Gatsby has to be credited to Nick’s fascinating narration. You also wonder how reliable he is as a narrator – which adds a different dimension to the novel. You can get the book here! 📖
The lyrical lines are the charm of the book, with lines like:
“I was within and without, simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life.”
Or the one describing Gatsby’s smile:
“He smiled understandingly–much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life.”
I hope you enjoyed these suggestions. We will be updating this list with new cheap books soon as we keep searching for the best ones for you. Happy Reading!
