IMO, Digital Fortress was good but nothing will top Angels & Demons when it comes to Dan Brown.

The Giver - Lois Lowry
V for Vendetta - Alan Moore
The Da Vinci Code - Dan Brown

And not one of my favorites but a milestone in my life would be Roots by Alex Haley.  Longest book by far I have ever read and probably will ever read.  It took me five years to finish that book.  It had to be like 1500 pages long.  Good story, but just way too long.

Do comics count?

I like Sin City comics...

If it has to be an actual book/novel type then...

Most of Stephen Kings, they're awesome

Audrey Rose by Frank De Felitta

I read this when I was quite young and it left an impression.  Very creepy.  The movie wasn't bad either.  To Kill a Mockingbird may be the best and only example I can think of where the movie actually lived up to the source material.

I loved The Giver. I read it in the 6th grade as a class-read, you know? And I just kept thinking about it again and again until I bought it for myself a few weeks ago and read it again. That book just sticks with you.

I bought a lot of classics recently. Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion by Jane Austen, Treasure Island, The Scarlet Pimpernel as well as 1984. I can't stop reading 1984, that book pulls you right in.

I just bought "The Golden Compass" which is first in the "His Dark Materials" trilogy by Philip Pullman and I'm liking it so far. It's great.

Ihave always loved anything by Edgar Allan Poe, Dean Koontz, H.P. Lovecraft, and Stephen King. Just anything by any of them. I can't really pick a favorite.

The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K.Le Guin

A science fiction novel which tells the story of Winter, an Earth-like planet where the weather conditions are semi-arctic and the inhabitants are all of the same sex, which is invited to join a coalition of planets.

and I'm not a big science fiction fan.

this book is pure class - amazing characters, great depth...just WOW!

I can't disagree with you here. I read 1984 as pedagogic curriculum piece and I lost the top part of my head. Never recovered from it, even after having read Animal Farm, this had a similar impact.

Germinal by Emile Zola is an outstanding piece of literature. The first to capture a verisimilitude or a representation of a documentary style of reality in the characters and story being rooted in a tale of workers verses capitalists and nature verses nurture. French miners working in terrible poorly paid conditions in the coal mines. A masterpeice..

Those who liked 1984...can I recommend Feed?  It is along a similair vein and is my alltime favorite book, even outing 1984 and Farenheidt 451 as close seconds.
