    The one that grabbed me by the throat and would not let me stop reading was "The Andromeda Strain".

    The one that had the most eye opening effect on me was "Atlas Shrugged".

    The one that ordered my life the most was "The Prophet".

    Never understood the appeal of 100 years of solitude.

    I started "100 Years.." last summer and couldn't get into it. Maybe I'll try again.

    Nelson DeMille and Pat Conroy are my favorite authors but my all time favorite book was "I Know This Much is True" by Wally Lamb. Only time I ever fell in love with a fictional character. I sobbed when I finished because our relationship ended. I kid you not.
