Requiem for a Dream by Hubert Selby, Jr.

It's a book that goes beyond the negative effects of drug use/abuse. I don't want to go into it too much but it's a popular misconception that it's an anti-drug movie. There is a far bleaker message that the author goes for in my opinion and it hits me hard whenever I think about it after reading it last summer.

Honorable mentions
1. Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
2. Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo
3. All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque
4. The Crisis of the Modern World by René Guénon
5. The Origins of the Urban Crisis: Race and Inequality in Postwar Detroit by Thomas Segrue
