    "Peace" by Gene Wolfe....

    But then you have to read all of the theories on what's going on.

    I'm a sucker for the actual book.

    I enjoyed the first two Jason Bourne books by Robert Ludlum.

    Fight Club was cool.

    The Jack Reacher novels are a fun afternoon read. One Shot is what they based the Tom Cruise film on.

    Jack Reacher novels look interesting.

    I have seen the Tom Cruise movie and I liked it.

    Read the two novels 1984 and Brave New World. Well, actually they're owners manuals but so well done

    If you want proof that there were people that knew what the NSA was doing before Snowden, read "Digital Fortress" by Dan Brown. He doesn't push that book because there is an obvious typo in it, I think.. And the NSA people he acknowledges helping him with the book probably appreciate him not pushing it. Read that book.

    Anything by Kurt Vonnegut. Especially Cat's Cradle and Slaughterhouse Five.
     
  14. The Vegetarian by Han Kang if you want something trippy and weird.

    The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brian if you want a visceral story about the Vietnam War.

    I have read these too, another book you might like in a similar vein is The Handmaid's Tale

    Edward Bunker's books are damn good reads. Animal Factory, Dog Eat dog, No Beast So Fierce and Little Boy Blue.

    If you've never read Bukowski I suggest you change that asap and start with Ham On Rye, Factotum or Post Office.

    Well, my favorite novel is A Prayer For Owen Meany, but it's nothing like The Godfather.

    With the current situation, I think the books we listed are very important for people to start reading again. Throw in some Fahrenheit 451 too.
