I enjoyed Orwell's 1984; probably would give it around the same score as you, about a ~7.5/10. Have you read Brave New World by Aldous Huxley? It's considered the companion to 1984 but it's a dystopian society on the other end of the spectrum - people are given non-stop sex and drugs, are eliminated from any real intellectual activity and become like little children. I actually enjoyed BNW more than 1984, would probably rate it a 8.3/10, partially because it is probably more relevant to present-day America, but also because it is possible to interpret the society in BNW as a utopian society instead which is not really possible with 1984.
