    Great book!

    The last book I read that I truly enjoyed was "Water for Elephants". Something about circuses and the 1930's, it just get's my vote every time. Also, I loved how it told the story through the memory of an old man, stuck in a convalescent home, reminiscing about his past. It read so well, and was so thoroughly researched. I truly appreciated this book, and enjoyed in immensely. I actually got book apathy (when you finish reading a story, and you feel lost because the tale is over) after this one
    Loved both. I just re-read "Geek Love" and shared it with a good friend. Along with "Confederacy of the Dunces" this is one of my all-time favs. I'm reading "The Drinker" by Hans Fallada right now. Very good read about a man sinking very rapidly into the depths of alcoholism.

    A Confederacy Of Dunces is one of the funniest books of all time.

    As far as life affecting books, I'll go with just about anything by Andrew Vachss.

    if you wanna read something really funny, Good Omens is hilarious.



    the book i'm currently reading - The Master and Margarita, is simply phenomenal.

    These statements are both 100% true.

    I really liked the Neverwhere novel.

    The miniseries it's based on is pretty bad. The budget definitely showed.

    So far there are some good titles abound in this thread (ie. Master and Margarita, Confederacy of Dunces).

    Call me boring, and a stickler for language and narrative, but The Grapes of Wrath is the most recent book that awe-inspired me.

    If we're talking humor, it's Catch-22 or Bright Lights, Big City that last had me in stitches.
