Wanted: Great books...

I need a good - nay, a GREAT book to read. 

I think it's no exaggeration on my part when I say that I have not read a really good book in a long time.  2008 was not a very good reading year for me, and 2009 isn't any better. 

Good books I've read recently:

- Einstein's Dreams (Alan Lightman)

- The Penelopiad (Margaret Atwood)

- Perfume (Patrick Suskind)

- The English Patient (Michael Odjaante)

-The Graveyard Book (Neil Gaiman)

There may have been a few more, but I can't remember any right now.

In terms of GREAT books though, the last great book I remember reading was "Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell" - and that was back in 2005.

So...help me out by thinking of great books you've read and giving me recommendations :)

Thanks in advance!!
