No translated version available yet, but I second that, it was a great read.

I agree with everything Volwraith suggested other than the Dark Materials series. I found it utterly unreadable. But everyone to their own taste.

Now Magician and the other riftwar series (and all it's subsequent books) are highly recommended. They really are excellent. Partuclarly the empire books, set on the other side of the Rift.

When I read the original 'call for comments', I hoped the quoted line would help making this less of another 'this, and this, and that' book.

I don't recognize half of the titles that are mentioned: please add a few words about what genre (if any) the book belongs to when you post, at the very least.

There is a list from the British Librarian Society consisting of the 30 best novels of all time.
I've briefly heard on the news about It a couple of months ago and could'nt find It. All I remember is that Alice Sebold and Audrey Niffenegger are on It.

Can someone find that list ?

Were you talking about the list of books every adult should read before they die? It's here. The association was the British Museum, Libraries and Archives Council (MLAC), btw. (I wrote about it for the Project Gutenberg homepage, which is why I remembered.)

Space Prison (AKA - The Survivors) by Tom Godwin.

Space Prison is a story of exile. A race of humans inadequate to be kept as slaves are left by their captors to perish on an barren and harsh planet. As they die from fever, animal attacks, starvation and sheer stress all that is left to keep the remnant going is the desire for an impossible revenge.

A couple that I have recently liked are a memoir of the civil rights movement by the mother/daughter team of Patricia Stevens Due and Tananarive Due, Freedom in the Family and Frank Delaney's Ireland, a mix of history and myth wrapped around a great family story. A list that includes my reading for '06, plus top 10 & honorable mentions is here - http://jdhake.pbwiki.com/ReadingList2006. Note that I don't distinguish audiobooks, but nearly 50% are since I have a fairly lengthy daily commute.
