What are some of the most difficult to comprehend but most insightful and mind bending books you know of? Preferably stories; fiction or non fiction. I'd rather have someone show then tell. Really creative stuff too, and also long.

also books that changed your perspective or life even.

"There is only one thing a writer can write about: what is in front of his senses at the moment of writing... I am a recording instrument... I do not presume to impose "story", "plot", "continuity"... Insofar as I succeed in Direct recording of certain areas of psychic process I may have limited function... I am not an entertainer..."

― William S. Burroughs, Naked Lunch


This looks really interesting. Plus it says the chapters can be read out of order? I really like books like that. I remember reading a book where the chapters would cross reference eachother and so you would jump from the first chapter to the final one back to the second to the middle etc.
