    Confederacy of Dunces, Fear and Loathing. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (wrote a *****in' essay on it. I suspect it was good because I actually enjoyed doing it).

    I think, for me, it probably has to be Lolita.
    Why? I'm reading it just now and it's giving me a headache tbh. Nabokov's command of English is indeed mind-blowing, but so are his descriptions - in most cases, less is more. :p:

    For me, it's probably 'What I Was' by Meg Rosoff.

    It's got to be a toss up between the very hungry caterpillar and we're going on a bear hunt. I mean, yeah sure the Bronte sisters, Austen, Eliot, Tolstoy, they're all pretty good but you can't beat a bit of 'We can't go over it. We can't go under it. We've got to go through it!' =p
