We live our lives completely immersed in technology—sharing every aspect of our existence with the different apps that reside in the tiny computers we are constantly clutching at our sides. It's no surprise that science fiction—a genre with a particular interest in technology—has produced some fascinating and frightening books about the dangers of all-powerful tech. This list highlights a handful of the best books that warn of technology taking over. After reading a few, you just might find yourself adjusting those Facebook privacy settings. The hero of The Path is a relatable guy with a white-collar computer job.

Sound like current news? Time for some dystopian short stories to show the way. Fiction has already prepared many of us for a dystopia, even if we never actually imagined it would happen. In these stories heroes and heroines fight oppression and imagine new worlds, but they also succumb to tyranny and die.
