Me too...I love many many books, and love rereading them. But these two completely transport me into their universes.

Just finished re-reading Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson.
I love ANYTHING by P.G. Wodehouse. (I love to laugh)

I read over and over again several books by Charles de Lint. Lyrical, dreamy prose that literally takes you away into an alternate plane of reality.

If it's got to be one, I'll name A Winter's Tale by Mark Helprin.

Although next time somebody asks, I'll probably have some other book in mind.

The Serge Storms books are funny, funny, funny.

I have (3) paperback copies of "Red Storm Rising" on my bookshelf, all purchased while traveling and as a direct result of some very poor choices in reading material selection before those trips.

I'll bet most people don't recall that book came out about (9) months before a real meeting between Reagan/Gorbachev in Keflavik, Iceland. So when the meeting took place, I was already familiar with Iceland and Keflavik and the strategic importance of Iceland.

LOL! I've got that book in paperback, hardcover and audiobook (abridged and unabridged). It gets a re-read every couple of years.

You might also like "Running Blind", a suspense novel by Desmond Bagley, also set in Iceland.

Well at least I feel more normal now!! I didn't include the original hardcopy because that was my first read...the other (3) were bought while traveling, (1) is American edition and (2) are UK version (bought in Heathrow and Singapore).

I'll try out Running Blind...thanks for the suggestion!

Just as an aside, I've read a lot of Clancy and continue to read him but (like many authors,e.g. Grisham) his later offerings fall short of his first efforts.

Having a hard time thinking of an all-time favorite, but The God of Small Things (Arundhati Roy) is worth a mention. I stopped reading for fun during college for some reason, and this book brought me back in.

Yes, that is one of my favorite quotes ever. I've already decided that a variation of it is going on my tombstone: “No more hopes, no more fears, I am free.” Plagiarism be dammed. Have you also read Report to Greco and The Saviors of God?
