Island, Ape and Essence, and, actually, most of Aldous Huxley's works.

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.

The Third Man by Graham Green.

The Castle, The Metamorphosis, and, again, the majority of Franz Kafka's Work.

Oh, and let's not forget Hamlet, Macbeth and the rest of the Shakespearean Tragedies.
