    May I start a bit early on the suggestions? I don’t know if these books have been discussed before, but you may want to think about:

    The Shack–William Paul Young. This is an excellent short novel about a man who claims to have encountered God in a shack where his young daughter was murdered.

    The Time Traveler’s Wife–Audrey Niffenegger

    The Known World–Edward P. Jones. This novel explores the world of mid-nineteenth slavery in a fictional northern Virginia county. It reads more like a great 18th-century adventure than a post-modern tale of slavery.

    Don Quixote–Miguel de Cervantes. After reading this masterpiece for the first time, I understand why many critics call it the novel of novels. I would definitely recommend Edith Grossman’s recent (2003?) translation.
