I want to read something that is sophisticated and has depth to it, something like House of Leaves.

Brave New World - Aldous Huxley.
Brideshead Revisited - Evelyn Waugh.
Sri Isopanisad - His Divine Grace (I don't have an international keyboard but here's a crack at it) A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupa.

The last one is really good, it's about Hare Krisna stuff, but if you're into anything spiritual it's really interesting.

1984 if you haven't already read it, and I studied Enduring Love my Ian McEwan for my As leve and found that really engaging.

Look to Windward - Iain M Banks.

One of the best Sci-Fi books I've ever read. Very deep.

Yeah, Ian McEwan is pretty good. I think 'The Child in Time' is his best, it's less frustrating that some of his other novels plot wise (although they're almost universally beautifully written) because he gets a bit hung up on 'oh, I'm a postmodernist, look at how postmodern I am'.

I'd recommend finding something by JM Coetzee, a really good South African writer - 'Life and Times of Michael K' is good, as is 'Foe', but anything by him really.

If you wanted something more 'classic' I'd go for one of the modernist writers, Virginia Woolf is good (Mrs. Dalloway, The Voyage Out, Between the Acts), and James Joyce's Dubliners and Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man are really interesting, but won't take 6 months of your life like trying to tackle 'Ulysses' or 'Finnigan's Wake' would have to to appreciate them at all.

Oh, and Oscar Wilde's 'Picture of Dorian Gray' is fantastic too, moving backwards, or Thomas Hardy 'Tess of the D'Urbervilles' or 'The Mayor of Casterbridge' if you can handle the downbeatness of it all.

The Cat In The Hat, belive me, read the extended 'explicit' version. Anyways, go for Lord of the Flies or something like that.

Pretty much any book by Robert Harris.

Cicero is a really enjoyable read, especially for a political thriller.

The Satanic Bible, it has a great depth to it, I read it not being a great 'fan' of Satan, and it changed a lot of my views on things, it didn't turn me into a Satanist, but it certainly did change my views, give it a try.

Here's what you do.
1. Get a trout.
2. Bring trout everywhere you go.
3. Problem solved.

Seriously, I wouldn't **** with a guy who is randomly carrying a trout.

At the moment I am reading Frankenstein by Shelley and Whisky Galore by Compton Mackenzie, both fit the bill. Though Whisky galore is more witty, I don't particularly agree with Shelley herself, though that doesn't take away from the book,

I've read that long time ago. Great book not so much about Satanism but more about philosophy of the Evil .

Oryx and Crake - Margaret Atwood

Its a fantastic book. Everyone always rates The Handmaids Tale by her, but IMO Oryx and Crake is far superior.

err, for starters:

The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald
On the Road, Kerouac
Chronicles, Part 1 - Dylan
The Catcher in the Rye, Salinger
Wuthering Heights, Emily Bronte..

Just have a look around the "Classics" section of your local bookstore and see if anything interests you there.

If you're into psychology, then Flowers For Algernon by Daniel/David Keyes is very good.

The most compelling book I've read in my entire life (and I read ALL THE TIME) is:

The Mysticism of Music, Sound and Word by Hazrat Inayat Khan. You can read it free here: http://wahiduddin.net/mv2/II/II_0.htm
