S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders is a must read before you die. Throughout the novel, the characters go through some of the toughest times in their childhood that they form a street gang. Despite that, they still fathom the meaning of promise and devotion to each other, and the story gets even more poignant and didactic when it revolves around Johnny. Overall, the novel teaches us about the lesson of commitment and altruism and how vital they are to our character and peers.

Quarantine by Greg Egan, very interesting and mind bending book.
The republic by Plato, question everything, strive for truth
All you need is kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, short but good read (supposedly the basis of the movie Edge of tomorrow, but haven't seen it so can't compare)

Books that have already been mentioned but could use a reinforcing re-mentioning:
1984 by Orwell, I remember I was skeptical about this before reading it, but I'm really glad I read it.
Good omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, a funny/interesting take on the end of the world.
Stranger in a strange land by Robert Heinlein, Grok this.
After dark by Haruki Murakami, good atmosphere and world building in a fairly ordinary setting

My two favorite books of all time are The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro and The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers. I recommend these books anytime I get the chance lol

You HAVE to read "Kafka On The Shore" - it's simply amazing! It took some time for me to read it all, and I had to think quite a lot, but it was defenitely worth it!
