I've never been so engrossed in a book as when I was reading House of Leaves by Mark Danielewski

Politically? I'm not that well read. But books influenced my thoughts a lot, and I never really developed a preference for 'high' literature over 'pulp'. So, if we're talking things I grew up with, Elric of Melnibone taught me that all nobles are lying bastards, no exceptions, and when a system is broken beyond salvation, sometimes the best thing to do is to take the leap and shatter it no matter what happens to you for doing so. Dragonlance taught me about what it means to be actually noble and righteous through Sturm's character arc, and I cried for days when he died.
