Before I start listing them, I have to warn you guys that the definition of “weird” might differ from one person to another. What I find weird, may not be unusual for someone else and that’s okay because we don’t have the same life.
THE BOOK OF THE NEW SUN BY GENE WOLFE
I started this book so excited thinking it would be a normal fantasy hahah. It’s a great book but I would lie to myself if I didn’t mention how odd it was. You have a torturer’s guild, and they have a machine that makes you uncontrollably suicidal so the character would mutilate herself to death. YEAH, Harsh to read I know. And that’s just the beginning, the actual plot is vague but it’s one of those books you need a re-read to understand everything. The narrator has a very unique perspective, almost a schizophrenic approach, it doesn’t make sense sometimes.
GEEK LOVE BY KATHERINE DUNN
This book has the most memorable characters you can find, they form a carnival and it’s freak-ish to the bones. Imagine a family that will do whatever it takes to maintain it’s abnormality for the carnival to have a business and live. The amount of efforts the parents would be willing to go is exorbitant. The mother would poison herself so she can have children with deformities and disabilities for their traveling carnival.
INVISIBLE MONSTERS BY CHUCK PALAHNIUK
This book was one hell of a ride. It is about everything our society is obsessed and is disturbed about. It’s one of those books where it can get confusing, but if you follow the narrator and you just go along with the pace, you’ll get use to it. It’s a social critic of beauty and everything that stands between our perception of beauty and ugliness.
A CLOCKWORK ORANGE BY ANTHONY BURGESS
You may know this book because of the movie or vice versa, but I think we can all agree that its story is bizarre. We start the book with little to no idea what they are saying because it has its own vocabularies. All the worldbuilding is also very absurd , where bar serves milk as a delicacy but the deep theme of personal values and its character development is one of the most memorable elements I’ve read.
