Again, some great books on here, and then some that are questionable. "All Quiet on the Western Front" and "Journey to the End of the Night" had a big influence on me in college. Both are dark, but effective.

I've only recently heard of "The Man Without Qualities" but I think I'm intrigued enough to put it on my list.
