Default Most Interesting Book You\'ve ever Read?

Sorry if it's been done.

Most interesting (that book you couldn't put down until you were finished) Fiction and Non-Fiction book you've ever read?

For me:

Fiction - Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
Non-Fiction - The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli

The last book I read was good. It was 8 years ago. "Makes me Wanna Holler" by Nathan McCall.

Illuminatus! Trilogy by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson. I read it like 8 times in the two years after graduating college. Haven't read it recently but its a brilliant novel. There must be 150 charecters with about 12 interweaving plotlines including lots of sex, drugs, international intrigue, revisionist history, conspiracy theory, smugglers in golden submarines (well, only one really) and talking dolphins.

The whole trilogy is published in one volume about 1400 pages long and the first time I read it all the way through I cleared it in about 4 days; the first book is very fast paced and jumps all over the place so you have to promise yourself that you'll read at least 100 pages in the first sitting and not worry about comprehending anything - cause you won't.

I'm not a big reader, but I always thought City Come A-Walkin' was a pretty interesting techno-thriller or whatever the genre is...

As somebody who usually reads fiction, I picked up Global Brain by Howard Bloom, on a recommendation of someone here on OOT.

Practically every page, I put the book down to think about what I had just read.
