    I would agree with War Hound and the World's Pain, Warlord of the Air, or Behold the Man.

    Outside Mike's work there are many great options as well but those were the first three that came to mind upon reading the question.

      Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury , this great writer's own response to the era of McCarthyism, still retains some bite. In fact some of its predictions about Neo-consumerism, high tech media saturation and the constant pressure from political ideologies left or right to stifle freedom of thought and expression seem to have been pretty accurate. This tome was considered essential reading in my own high school days.

        I think Behold The Man would be able to raise numerous questions from any students , I have read it and re read it and still think Mike's imagination is amazing to come up with a piece like that
