What? No commentary. Did you love them, hate them, want to feed them to the goats?

Tess of the d'Urbervilles definitely caused a huge reaction with me too!

I've only read Child 44 and I Know This Much is True and they were both great!

From your list I've read I Know This Much and Crow Lake. I wasn't crazy about either book but even so I can see why they would have an effect.

I've only read The Handmaid's Tale and that book certainly stirs up strong emotions!

I've read The Handmaid's Tale and Uncle Tom's Cabin, and a bit of East of Eden. The Handmaid's Tale had the most impact on me out of the three.

Uncle Tom's Cabin made my list too.. Tess would have been there too but somehow the Mayor of Casterbridge had a bigger impact on me than Tess.. I have to read The Handmaid's Tale (has been on my TBR for a long time now)

I had strong feelings about numbers 1 and 2 on your list. I wanted to kick the crap out of Angel Clare.

I've only read Tess. Uncle Tom's Cabin is one I'll get to someday.
