What is a book that grabbed you at 20 like Harry Potter grabbed you when you were 12?....

Not to say only 12 year olds can read Harry Potter! I guess I'm talking about how affected I was by HP at that age. I just mean, something magical that you couldn't put down, something you wished so bad that it was real; extremely well written and yet easy to read like butter, as you keep turning page after page...

PS; I took down all of your suggestions re. Angela Carter (which I read for the beauty of language and the sensual fairy tale) and George Orwell (which I read more for political reasons)...but I am now in the mood for simply an amazing story.

If you have a suggestion, please tell me just a little bit of what it's about.

Thanks so much!
