What books or stories struck you in such a way that it has stuck with you for years afterward? It can be anything
for me pic related was a really eerie experience when I first read the series years ago. Just the way Wolfe wrote and how alien it felt really tripped me up because I knew its set billions of years into the future and definitely feels foreign, yet very familiar.
I know that's the point and Wolfe gradually reveals more throughout without spoonfeeding in the least, but even after years I would realize something new about the book that I didn't see before. It has layers that made me feel like I was trying to focus on something right before me but I could not look directly at it, I had to take time.
It's definitely one of those series that I appreciate more and more with time, but it still gives me this strange feeling that I still haven't grasped it and have yet to figure out more form Wolfe's writing.
