I totally agree with many of the earlier suggestions, especially To Kill a Mockingbird, East of Eden (or any other Steinbeck), the Brontes, Shakespeare, etc...


Middlemarch by George Eliot
The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf
The Stranger by Albert Camus (also The Plague)
Tess of the D'Ubervilles by Thomas Hardy
Walden by Henry David Thoreau
Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame (I love the story of how young Englishmen would hand the book to their intended, and if she didn't "get it" they wouldn't marry!)

and some newer stuff:
Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
Farenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger

and the following books by Margaret Atwood
The Handmaid's Tale
Cat's Eye
The Blind Assassin
Alias Grace
Oryx and Crake
