As far as actual literature that I'm reading, Tom Clancy's The Hunt for Red October,
and Executive Orders,
and Sophocles' Oedipus Rex.
Rereading the Clancy's, both for high school classes (History and English, respectively), and Oedipus is for English as well.
Has anyone noticed that the logic in Oedipus is incredibly lacking? as I was reading it, I kept getting struck by how incredibly dense the characters are, that they were unable to figure out Oedipus' relation to Thebes... maybe it's just because, as the reader, we already know it, but it seems there are some really obvious pointers.
