Neuromancer by William Gibson
Care to see where The Matrix and Ready Player One were born? This vibrant vision of a silicon future put cyberpunk on the map and blurs the line between fantasy and science fiction. It also packs one of the best lines of my childhood: "The sky was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel."

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas
You've probably seen the movie. You might claim to have read the book in high school. It's time to revisit Edmond Dantes. The perfect work of adventure fiction and a constant inspiration to me, Dumas explores the delights and horrors of revenge as young Edmond Dantes is imprisoned, escapes, and returns to seek vengeance upon his enemies.
