You have read The Man in the High Castle, right? One of my all-time favorites.

Scanner Darkly was really like Nineteen Eighty-Four, but nevertheless really captivating read. Also Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? is worth reading. Only thing is that you cannot wipe images of Blade Runner-movie out while reading it.

I just recently finished John Cleese's autobiography. Can recommend it. Very good lookback of a very silly (walking) man's life and his rise to the institutional position of comedy scene.
Haven't read The Man in the High Castle. Will look out for it. I did read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, but it was so long ago that I can't remember much other then it being quite different to the movie & being good. At some point I'd like to find the stories Total Recall & Minority report were based on & read them.

I'm currently halfway reading "A Fire Upon the Deep" by Vernor Vinge.
The idea of civilizations being rudimentary or intelligent depending on how far their system is from Milky Way center, is fascinating.
