    Darkness at Noon by Koestler, A Clockwork Orange by Burgess, Brave New World by Huxley and We by Zamyatin are the most important ones I can think of; you might also want to read some of Orwell's essay collections for some background on his politics and where he was coming from when writing 1984, and take a look at the Left Book Club list (Orwell was a member of it).
