My all time favorite Novel. Cancer Ward by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.

On several levels a great book. As social commentary the cancer of Communism eating away at the Soul of Russia. A really good love story about a guy whose only hope of beating cancer is to take medicine that completely emasculates him making it impossible to pursue the woman his soul loves in any way but a purley spiritual sense. Rich in pathos dealing with the mortality of us all facing the inevitability of our own walk through that lonesome valley we all must eventually tread. And a shining example of hope in eternal joy yet without the easy banalities and platitudes the Church so often tries to spoonfeed its shallow members. I highly recommend.
