    People at this forum don't read fiction? Although as I get older, I don't read much fiction. When I was in my early teens, I read fantasy books. Then at 17, I began reading more serious fiction books and by the time I was in my late 20s, I mostly read non-fiction books. The last time I read fiction was Richard Matheson's Stir of Echos during the Covid lockdown.

    Maybe I should read (or listen to) fiction books instead of reading forum posts from autists.

    Here are three that immediately come to mind. I'll likely kick myself right after I post this when I realize that I missed something.

    Catcher in the Rye spoke to me when I read it in high school. I don't mean that in the literal sense since I'm not a psychopath or a psychotic.

    I felt like I actually was *in* Stephen King's The Stand when I read it. That feeling was even stronger in 2020 before I *took* a stand against the Fauci cult.

    Foucault's Pendulum, by Umbert Eco, was a tour de force of all kinds of conspiracy theories and secret societies presented in a very wry manner that brought it all together like the Unified Field Theory. It brought out my inner Alex Jones.

    My dark horse is a horror novel that I read ages ago about a curse, and it contained about all of the ghosts, monsters, witches, etc under the moon. It reminded me of my family.

    Warriors, I was pretty attached to the main character (Firestar), not sure if it really "shaped" my life and actions though. I was really into that universe when I was in middle school.
    Halo, going hard in the gym and in kickboxing
    Scott Pilgrim maybe, that was basically my art style and scene back in jr high and middle school when I read it (skater/punk hipster scene).

    I don't read books much these days

    Catcher in the Rye is a very good book (something of a hit wonder for J.D. Salinger). I believe it's required reading in most US high schools. A lot of the books that were required by my high school for class or summer reading were pretty good. The Great Gatsby (a shitty book that I refused to read because it was shitty) is one of the exceptions. That book sucks balls.

    You are fucking amazing. Same.

    I'd add:

    1. The Dunwich Horror (H.P. Lovecraft). Because it excited me to read.

    3. The Deathbird (Harlan Ellison). Because it's when I started to question the status quo.

    The Stranger - Albert Camus
    The Death of Ivan Ilitch - Tolstoy
    Notes from the Underground - Dostoevsky

    In my last day in high school they asked us to put in a backpack three objects to define you. I put Notes From the Underground, a Mate and a Vasco da Gama shirt.
