All Quiet on the Western Front - Erich Maria Remarque
The silence spreads. I talk and must talk. So I speak to him and say to
him: "Comrade, I did not want to kill you. If you jumped in here again, I
would not do it, if you would be sensible too. But you were only an idea
to me before, an abstraction that lived in my mind and called forth its
appropriate response. It was that abstraction I stabbed. But now, for the
first time, I see you are a man like me. I thought of your hand-grenades,
of your bayonet, of your rifle; now I see your wife and your face and our
fellowship. Forgive me, comrade. We always see it too late. Why do they
never tell us that you are poor devils like us, that your mothers are just
as anxious as ours, and that we have the same fear of death, and the
same dying and the same agony—Forgive me, comrade; how could you be my enemy? If we threw away these rifles and this uniform you could be my brother just like Kat and Albert. Take twenty years of my life,
comrade, and stand up—take more, for I do not know what I can even
attempt to do with it now."

The Stranger - Albert Camus
"But at least I had as much of a hold on it as it had on me. I had been right, I was still right, I was always right. I had lived my life one way and I could just as well lived it another. I had done this and I hadn't done that. I hadn't done this thing and I had done another. And so? It was as if I had waited all this time for this moment and for the first light of this dawn to be vindicated. Nothing, nothing mattered, and I knew why. So did he."

The Time Machine - H.G. Wells
"Nature never appeals to intelligence until habit and instinct are useless. There is no intelligence where there is no change and no need of change."

Watchmen - Dave Gibbons, Alan Moore_III
The complexity of the drawings alone is enough to read this comic. I also enjoyed the philosophy. Could have done without the squid sub-plot though...

A Clockwork Orange - Anthony Burgess
Doesn't compare with the movie. Maybe I'd sing a different tune if I'd read this before seeing the movie...
