Mine would be James Clavell's Shogun. I read it at least 5 times in 2 languages. If you haven't, I strongly suggest you do. It is truly an unputdownable read!

I would have to say, as of now, The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne. After 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea I downloaded this to my kindle free from Amazon and was so enthralled from start to finish.

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (complete) would have to be second.

I have a decently sized list of gems:

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
The Bartimaeous Trilogy by Jonathon Stroud
Revenge of the Sith by Matthew Stover (Yup)
The Quickening Trilogy by Fiona McKintosh

and my current favorite: A Song of Fire and Ice by George R.R. Martin (a Game of Thrones and a Storm of Swords to be specific)

I'd have to go with The Hobbit/LOTR. I read them several times and loved them every time.

Honorable mention goes to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

"Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Phillip K Dick. Read it in three days, and it was awesome! It was made into a decent movie too.

Some runner ups would be:

"The Stand" by Stephen King
"The Hobbit" by JRR Tolkein
"Ender's Game" by Orson Scott Card
"Of Mice and Men" by John Steinbeck

...and probably some others...

Thatís what jumped into my thoughts after reading the title of this thread.
You may be interested (if you havenít read it already) in ďAztecĒ by Gary Jennings. Itís just as epic and engrossing.

Well, I got "Aztec" on ebay based on your recommendation. If it's comparable to Shogun I gotta read it! Thank you.
