I am an avid reader, and I think I've finally narrowed down my favorite fictional novels of all time. Stephen King's The Stand, and The Sum of All Fears by Tom Clancy.
I remember reading both of those years ago in high school and for some reason I LOVE to sit back, and re-read those books from time to time. It's fun to imagine a post-apocalyptic America following a Superflu outbreak, and it's fun to imagine the nuclear explosion at a fictional Super Bowl.
I prefer books that make me think. I prefer novels that make me think about how times have changed, and history has changed as well. I think that's why I'm fond of those two novels.
Does anyone else here have novels that make them think, or that they re-read a lot.
