Does any of you have some books you've read which influenced your thoughts a lot even though you didn't really enjoy reading it. For example I read a two part book series called Felicias Island and Felicias Travel. (at least I think that would be there names in a translation, I read them in Swedish) They where YA dystopian books and way to depressing for me and the plot was not that great. However they did have some really great portrayals of different kinds of societies and communities which the main characters of the book where part of or encountered. I often think of those different societies portrayed when looking at real world societies or ones described in other books. Who else has read a book they did not really care for but that still stayed with them?
