For me, i have two. brave new world by aldous huxley and the hand maid's tale by margaret atwood. both take place in a dystopian society. they are very good and disturbing. especially now when there are so many more similarities between today's society and the book.

It's very disturbing. but such a good read. I had to read it for my tenth grade english class. sometimes I wish I could find that teacher because aside from my latin teacher, she helped me the most.

Catch 22 by Joseph Heller. I chse it for a Grade 11 book report/essay. It was tough to follow at first but by the end of it I was blown awy. One of the greatest literary works of the 20th Century IMO

Sabby that's on my To Read list

Rehmo, The Stand is one of my all-time favorite books, tied for #1 with Slaughterhouse Five.

I won't lie, I don't read much as I just lose complete interest as my mind tend to wander off when I concentrate on reading but there's 3 books I read in high school that actually got my full attention:

The Hatchet
Of Mice And Men
12 Angry Men

They might be easy reading for most of you guys or childish but I liked them a lot.
