I loved "The Power of One" also!

I thought I was alone in the world in loving The Power of One by Brice Courtenay. Every time I mentioned it, nobody had ever heard of it. I re-read it also. The movie version is not good . . . at all.

"Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand is such an incredible true story of one man's incredible strength and courage to overcome horrendous physical and mental challenges and survive. so well written by Hillenbrand.

For me, I'd have to say Crime and Punishment if I can only pick one.

I love Barbara Kingsolver's The Bean Tree and the sequel, Pigs in Heaven, and really, anything she writes.

"The Alienist" by Caleb Carr is the best book I've ever read!

There are so many books that I love, but I have to go back to the series that really started me reading. "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings." I still reread them on a regular basis and alwasy find something new and intersting.

I agree 100% with you!! I didn't want the book to end, and keep wondering what happened to the characters. I've recommended it to everyone I know.

Incredible books! I introduced my son to these books and, he, too, loved them.

While "Pillers of the Earth" is recognized as one of Ken Follett's best works of historical fiction, I began with his early suspense novel, "Eye of the Needle", definitely a read that will keep you turning pages late into the evening. Edward Rutherford's (actual name: Francis Edward Wintle) "Sarum" and 'London" and "Russka" are also great reads. However, one of my favorite books is Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" (rather timely actually).

I have two favorites: ""Crossing to Safety" by Wallace Stegner and "My Name is Asher Lev" by Chaim Potok.

If you mean EDGAR SAWTELLE, then I agree. The writing was beautiful, the words captured my soul. The ending left me haunted feeling for days. I couldn't stop thinking about it. A true "American Novel".

Wilbur Smith's Egyptian series - Warlock, River God and The Seventh Scroll - should not be left out of this list. Also, Colleen McCullough's Morgan's Run - awesome book. Others by her also good - Masters of Rome series. Many others already mentioned - anything by Ken Follett, Diana Gabaldon.
