    Difficult to choose - the more books you read, as someone noticed, the more difficult it gets. Changes in taste occur with time, too.

    At the moment my favourite is Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut.

    Another powerful science fiction story - Solaris by Stanislaw Lem. Probably one of the weirdest books I've ever read and might be a bit boring at times but if you read it till the end, it shocks you and keeps coming back to you to think about it for years.

    Would vote for 1984 and To Kill a Mockingbird too. And for Marquez, especially The Hundred Years of Solitude

    Tinker. Tailor, Soldier, Spy- John le Carre

    One of those rare books where the plot keeps you hooked whilst there is also a depth to the characters and an interesting analysis of the subject of betrayal.

    If you become hooked then you need to follow with the other Karla trilogy novels, the Honourable Schoolboy (Lacks something but still a good book) and Smiley's People (Nearly a return to form)

    Have now read them possibly 3-4 times each and every additional reading has added a nuance to my understanding.
