I second those suggestions - especially the first two. I have not been more entertained, suck in, and even moved by any other book than I was with the Count of Monte Cristo. Frankenstein is brilliant, and thoughtfull, not at all what Hollywood turned it into. Dracula's a good page turner, I felt let down in most other areas I expect from great books, but it was entertaining!
