What books do you recommend?

And when I say book, I mean book, not podcast. I've just finished 'The Blunderer' by Patricia Highsmith. I've enjoyed most of the Highsmith books I've read, I especially enjoyed 'Deep Water' and 'The Talented Mr Ripley'. Another book I'd recommend is 'Fingersmith' by Sarah Waters. The BBC did a dramatisation of it, but I couldn't watch past episode 1 as it was so bad. My wife reads much more than me - she reads constantly. In fact I'll get her to become a member here and get her to post a list of what she likes. She has very good taste... but then I would say that wouldn't I?
