You read Brave New World by Huxley? That one's another one that deserves a read in these times. My personal "best of" order for dystopian novels is:

1984 (George Orwell)
Brave New World (Aldous Huxley)
Farenheit 451 (Ray Bradbury)
Animal Farm (George Orwell)
Atlas Shrugged (Ayn Rand)***
Anthem (Ayn Rand)

*** Atlas Shrugged is an outlier on this list; it's not a straight-up dystopian future story, and a lot of people don't like the politics behind Atlas Shrugged, but it's worth a read, for sure. It's also kind of a bear at over 1,000 pages.
