In the genre that this site supports Iíd have to say Dune by Frank Herbert. There are many other great books out there, many Iíve read. But off all of them Iíve partaken of, I think this is the best.
Catch 22, it about sums up the world as we know it and was futuristic, then. I keep a copy by my desk.
'Catch 22' is outstanding but mine are 'The Unbearable Lightness of Being' and 'Solaris'.
Science Fiction - 'The Centauri Device' by M John Harrison.
Modern - I'd probably have to agree on 'Catch 22'.
Crime - too many to choose, though 'The Choirboys' by Joseph Wambaugh would be high on the list.
Horror - Almost anything by HP Lovecraft.
Children's - 'Moominland Midwinter' by Tove Jansson (if you've never read it, do yourself a favour and buy a copy).
Childrens: PRINCESS SMARTYPANTS by Babette Cole 1984 ish. You'll love it. I read it to my daughter for years and I still have a copy. Go find it the art supports the story. Find a 1st edition full size. ( FYI, i have no financial links to the book or the publisher)
In fact one of my stories The Dark kNight is a sort of Princess Smartypants Grows Up (my wife's comment).
NOT 50 shades of gray! BOO!
Parts of The Bible, yes. Childrens: the Littlest Angel (a golden book). I read a LOT of Anne Rice's Vampire series - where Vampires still ripped people's throats out for the fun of it (yea!)
