I was in a list making mood today.
The following books are ones I found dramatically memorable and that left a permanent impression on my delicate little psyche. They are probably, at least in part, responsible for the state of my mind today.
- Possession by A. S. Byatt
- Dune by Frank Herbert
- The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie
- 1984 by George Orwell
- The Sandman by Neil Gaiman
- Tigana by Guy Gavriel Kay
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
- 1916: A Novel of the Irish Rebellion by Morgan Llywelyn
- The Demon Haunted World by Carl Sagan
- Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls
And two I found memorable in an “I think the book is brilliant, but you will never get me to read it again because it gave me the willies” sort of way.
- Lord of the Flies by William Golding
- Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton
