What book have you read that everyone should read and why?

Many books have a profound effect on us and stay with us for the rest of our lives. Help us all to discover this new gem that we may not have found!

For example "The Giving Tree" for its lessons on unconditional love and selflessness

    Jan 23 2014: In your lifetime, you must read at least one book that has won the Man Booker! My favourites are:
    - The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
    - Life of Pi - Yann Martel

    Or my personal favourite (shortlisted, not a winner unfortunately), A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry
