Of course, every great book will forever be etched in one's mind, but is there one that is so moving as far as human struggle that it still haunts your mind ... hundreds of non-fiction comes to mind. But then there are just as many fiction too. Thank you for answering.

Wow, Brian, thank you for sharing of all the works that still haunt you! You sure have a great list there that are sure to leave a lasting impression. Yes, I believe that is every writer's dream ...for their work to be memorable.
This is almost the exact answer I was going to give! Wuthering Heights has been my favorite book since I was 13 years old. I absolutely love the way Emily Bronte wrote. Her characters have such a strong hold on my mind and my heart.
Hi Phyllis, Wow, look at all of these great answers here. You are so right about Wuthering Heights being a hauntingly tragic romantic tale! You know it is a beloved book when it starts showing wear and tear. Thank you so much for sharing & Kayla
Me, too, Kayla. Bronte's characters seem so real to me. I love the works of Emily Bronte.
Hi Dana, yikes ...I don't think I could handle reading that book, but I did see the movie. I can imagine you do get chills. Not sure I want my mind filled up with such violence. That is certainly a haunting one there! Thank you for sharing.
Hi Marlene, Eeks for sure on that one! Oh, I saw the movie, but haven't read the book and I will not. Reading does certainly wear a memory path into one's brain. I can understand about be scared ...forever. Sorry about the memories : (
Hi Will, Oh yes, truly a haunting read there. Yes, that one boggles the mind and then some! Thank you for sharing. All have certainly come up with truly haunting writes. I may not have thought it through on using the word "haunting" but I love it.
I read "In Cold Blood" and had nightmares for weeks. Because the story is true it was just too frightening.
Woo, really good one, Angela! Darkness in the minds and hearts of children is both horrifying and terrifying. I will pass on the sleepless nights. Thank you so much for sharing.
Read this for gr 11 English class, it was a good book, not exactly my favourite, but definitely a good book. I'd have to say my favourite book is 1984 by George Orwell.
Hi Faceless, thank you so much for answering. Oh, yes, I can understand your choice of these two as haunting writers for sure.
Hi Tim, oh, you know when you answered you can select the option here to write a hub about it. I do hope you write a hub! How interesting and great choice too. Thank you so much for sharing!
Hi Noshin Rahman, Oh really, wow, this is unusual especially for a book for children! Thank you for answering. Makes one wonder how decides what genre a book comes under.
