    I will echo the other sentiments: 'Pillars' and World Without End are absolutely fantastic. As I was nearing the end of 'Pillars', I actually put the book down and flat out refused to finish it. I just couldn't bare the thought of not spending time with my "friends" once the book ended! It may seem a little slow at first, but give it time, once the plot starts to unfold and you get to know the characters, you will never want to stop reading.

    Lightning is one of my favorite books of all time....love Dean Koontz books.

    Thanks for all of the wonderful suggestions, now I have lots of new books to check out....while (not so) patiently waiting on my nook.

    The Magus by John Fowles.

    First 100 pages or so is a little slow, but then it gets really good.

    Les Miserables is probably my favorite book of all time.

    I also like the Count of Monte Christo.

    My "live and in person" book club read "The Curious Incident..." last year. Excellent choice! It makes for a good discussion.

    Cat - Thanks so much for recommending my book! It would mean a lot to me if you'd leave a review over at Amazon.com when you're finished. I plan to make Sleepwalker available in ePub early next year.

    But back to the topic . . .

    I've been writing more than I've been reading lately, but I've just finished Memory and Dream, by Charles de Lint (Great) and Under the Dome, by Stephen King (VERY disappointing). I love a lot of King's books, but I'd really recommend a pass on his latest. It's W-A-Y longer than it deserved to be, and the "payoff" was just plain dumb (IMHO).

    Rachel, I know you asked me awhile ago for a good list of recommends in the young adult/teen category. I wrote a two part blog post listing my favorite 2009 YA reads and thought I would share.

    Part 1: lists the books and their summary: http://yaedge.blogspot.com/2009/12/m...s-of-2009.html
    Part 2: why I loved each book: http://yaedge.blogspot.com/2010/01/m...09-part-2.html

    I would recommend all of these to all ages. I LOVED them!
