These are not (alas!) available in ebook form (or even in print right now, for that matter), but two old favorites of mine are: Limbo by Bernard Wolfe, and Sheep Look Up by John Brunner. In Limbo, Wolfe managed to predict the whole modern primitive movement, and he did it in 1953! Of any science fiction book ever written in the last century, Sheep Look Up comes the closest to predicting the world the way it is.
