The list author says: "Here is a list of high-quality amazing books that will stick with you long after you finished them, books you will have to pry your hands off of to put down, books to lock away in a fire-proof end-of-the-world capsule to save for all time!"
"This book and Witching Hour are so breath-taking. I absolutely loved them as a teenager and in my 20s, including book 2 (The Vampire Lestat), but found them hard to read in my 30s!??? Still beautiful!"
"This book and the sequel in the Riftwar Saga are one of those world-building books from a naive but powerful character pt of view. I have no idea why he kept writing so many books after set in this same world as they get progressively worse!"
""The newest great take on military SF. Has some of the craziest and most advanced tech I have ever read about, and puts a new spin on the standard military SF tropes. Continues in The Ghost Brigades, but maybe you should read Forever War first and then Starship Troopers."
