I agree about A Prayer for Owen Meany. I haven't read the others--I saw the movie Cider House Rules. A good list! I love reading.

Prayer for Owen Meany is one of my all time favorite books. I can't help but think of it whenever I'm under a bed, looking at an armadillo, or at a baseball game. Go figure.

I loved loved loved The Secret History. It's one of the few books that I've read non-stop, finished, then turned around and read non-stop again!
