I remember having to read Brave New World, which remains as a favorite of mine. Way better than having to read Wuthering Heights.
The same English teacher who gave us sci-fi short stories to read also recommended "Brave New World" to us, going as far as to explain the ideas behind the first part of the book to us - he seemed genuinely interested in science fiction works. I didn't get around to reading it until a short time later, and I remember my gut reaction upon first reading it was that I liked it more than "Nineteen Eighty Four" (which I also liked).

The Doctor: Yeah, you never fucking know the answer when it's important.
