Lockdown reading list

Last night, I tweeted that I’d finished The Road by Cormac McCarthy, and that it had such a profound effect on me that I didn’t feel like the same person I was when I started it.

I asked for novels that had had a similar effect on others. When I woke up, there were so many replies! Partly as a service to those who replied, and partly because I delete my tweets every 30 days, I’ve collated the recommendations into a list.

I’ve removed some, either because they’re non-fiction (which I know I didn’t specify, but it’s my list, so my rules), because the tweeter must have given an incorrect title (and no author), or because they merely listed their favourite books, rather than ‘life changing’ ones. Some books were recommended more than once. Apologies if I missed any.

Can’t get to the library? Not so bothered about copyright? Try ZLibrary.
