    Share the book that impressed you or left a mark on you with us! :smartass:

    In my case, that was Animal Farm by George Orwell. I read it when I was very young (about nine or ten years old) and I hated it so much exactly because it was so sad. To this day, I still cannot forget how I felt when I read it. :moon:

    Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid by Douglas R. Hofstadter

    Also, I had a maths teacher who had a habit of throwing a book (or board duster) at any dozing pupils.
    That made an impact.

    Animal Farm and 1984 by George Orwell. He just has a way of leaving such an impact throughout the whole story and then the last lines are always so thought provoking!

    A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara - My eyes actually water every time I think about it. It taught me to be thankful for my family and the little things in life and so much more, would recommend it to everybody. (:
