Re: Books that had the largest impact on you

The Long Walk, by Richard Bachman aka Stephen King.

I dreamt of this book as I was so intensely in it. It so cleverly written to draw the reader in, to make it part of it's psychology. Without the reader it is nothing in it's truist form- you may think this of all books, but this one becomes real when you read it. You can relate to it on some level and get immensely drawn in wishing what you shouldn't be wishing and becoming one of the evil spectators.

It is clever and amazing and if you should ever read it, you will ask yourself, how could I read this amount about a mundane subject....

Not a novel, but a short story- Ursula K. LeGuin's The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas.

I always thought that was a non-fiction book about phobias of egg-based cooking: "The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelettes"

Re: Books that had the largest impact on you

There's that too, but the title is misleading. The author got the idea for the name from a pacific northwest road sign reading "Semttelem, O." Semettelem is a small rural community in Oregon founded by illiterate stuttering outcasts with deformed palates. They meant to call it 'settlement.' They were not very imaginative and the man they hired to make the sign wasn't too bright.
