We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver
This book is extremely depressing. I have to admit that up front. But it is certainly food for thought.
"I'm unsure why one trifling incident this afternoon has moved me to write to you."I enjoy this beginning. It's is immediately clear that the book is going to be a conversation (if one sided) between two people through writing letters. They are obviously apart from each other, since she needs to be moved to write to him. And the sense of unease that permeates this book is there from the very beginning.
If you have been thinking about reading this books, I recommend that you pick it up.
