Ask MetaFilter: What book can’t you put down?

Some excellent recommendations here. I’d already recently read The Time Traveller’s Wife (excellent) and Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell (very good). Based on these recommendations, I’ve read so far Cloud Atlas (gimmicky but good) The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay (good), English Passengers (good) and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (excellent). And there’s plenty enough more left to fill my reading list for the next few months… [Update: The Eight, however, is pure proto-Da-Vinci-Code hokum.]
