“A Horse and His Boy” and “The Legend of King Arthur and His Knights” are great fantasy titles!

@mtl zack: I definitely second the “And Then There Were None” suggestion. It was written by Agatha Christie and was also published under the title “Ten Little Indians.” That was a page-turner.

Also: Catcher in the Rye, Romeo and Juliet, the second 200 pages of A Tale of Two Cities, Exodus, The Things They Carried, and so many more.

The Sun Also Rises- Ernest Hemmingway

I read this while in Spain and it really brought Pamplona and the festival there into a very romantic perspective… to the point where I HAD to visit that area. I was not disappointed when I arrived, or the three days I spent there and in San Sebastian.

Heart Of Darkness by Joseph Conrad, to remind us of the very very thin line between good and evil inside all of us.

I agreen with bluemukaki. And my favorite novels are mostly fantasy. Anything under titles by J.R.R Tolkien, Anne Mcaffery, and R.A Salvatore instantly catch my eye.
